Hairwing Blue Doctor was tied by Contributing Fly Tyer John Wood. Take a look at his contributor page, The Flies of John Wood, to see many more of his flies.

John's Notes: This pattern is an expedient version of the full dress Blue Doctor. This elegant, fishable fly is not only effective on salmon it has also proved to be just as effective on sea-run and land-locked trout.
