  Producing Flies

Many fly fishers will agree that the Wooly Bugger is one of the best patterns on Blue River.  Best colors are olive, brown, and black. 

Other patterns that work well include the red midge larva, zebra midge, hare's ear nymph,  phesant tail nymphs, hare's ear soft hackle, brassies, and copper johns. 

When the midges are on fly fishers will want to concentrate on size 20 and 22 midge patterns.

In memory of a fly fishers love.

Susie was the wife of avid fly fisher Barry Shrader who is a member of the Blue River Fly Fishers group. 

Susie was also the aunt of Curtis Latham the head game ranger at Blue River.  Susie's two brothers James and Charlie grew up spending time on Blue River and still fish Blue's waters to this day.  Susie's sister-in-law Pat along with her grandchildren Forrest and Dalton Latham are also avid trout fishers.

The family of Susan Latham-Shrader thanks the Blue River Association for such a distinction and asks that everyone continue to support the search for a cure for cancer.  The family further asks that support be given to the Citizens for the Protection of the Arbuckle-Simpson Aquifer (CPASA).
