Black Ice BLM (Beaded Little Mayfly)

BLM (Beaded Little Mayfly)
Developed by Tim Heng, previous manager of Taylor Creek Fly Shop, the BLM (Beaded Little Mayfly) is one of the most effective little mayfly/midge imitations ever. A thorax style bead with just the right amount of material - deadly.
Great early and late in the season.
The BLM was awarded the fly of the year in 2002 by Flyfisherman Magazine.

An Interesting Website

In my stumbling around the internet I found an interesting website. I have seen a couple of these programs on Public Television and lo and behold there are three seasons worth of fly tying programs to watch.
The "Fly Tying The Anglers Art" programs are presented by Washington State University at the following url: http://kwsu.org/Offers/FlyTying.aspx
I also have the link on my "Blogs of Interest List".
