Jeff Blood's Blood dot

By request from George over at wildfly365 I did a video of Jeff Blood's Blood dot fly. It is super effective. Twist them up in sizes 8-18. Fish them for trout. The big chrome love'em. Even the wild browns love it. Its a great pattern that should be every nymph fisherman box.  Twist them up in different colors.  Egg with steelhead orange is a good one. The one in the video is salmon egg with a flame dot.  Use glo-bug yarn for these guys. The key and most important part about the fly is translucency. So keep it sparse. 1/4 and 1/8 that yarn!  Enjoy
