Sipping my morning coffee, and opening Steve Raymond's book, BLUE UPRIGHT, I find that the first chapter deals with the Carey Special fly. After reading a few lines, my sleep laden mind drifted off to some of the Carey Specials I had fished in the past and the relative success of each one that I could recall. Then a great revelation brushed all that aside and I began to speculate about a PURPLE CAREY. Say, a number 8 hook, tied with a bright purple body and a pheasant tail hackle. What do you fellows think? Guess it wouldn't hurt to tie a couple and try them in a local water. Any thoughts?
