Blue Boy Sea Run Cutthroat Fly Tying Video

Tony demonstrates how to tie his modern version of the classic Sea Run Cutthroat fly “The Blue Boy”. In days of old around the shop there was a hunt for the perfect blue Danville chenille. Often small samples of an already pale/faded blue would float around in an attempt to match the blue for the pattern. We think the Mini Flat braid lights up much better, the fly sinks better and catches more fish.

Use the fly on a clear sinking line or Poly Leader swung and stripped in early morning hours. It’s a perfect time to fish Sea Runs in the Pacific Northwest!
