What with all the success North Country patterns have been brining me lately, a little time needed setting aside for “box filling” duties. Two dressings that really stand out are the Pearly Butt Bloa and a Black Magic variant sporting a red or silver wire rib. Fashioned on a size 16 Partridge Spider L3A/S the Bloa is perfect for covering hatches of Large darks or Blue-wings which we’re currently enjoying on the Eden. With a peacock herl thorax the Black Magic sits much better on a size 16-18 Mustad R50 to suggest any later season terrestrials. These’ll get a dunk before that Arctic blast hits us this coming weekend!
