Claret, what color is claret anyway. Just google the word and you'll be surprised what comes up. I for one am not the person that has to get it right. I believe close is good and usually gets it done and that's all I ask. After all we can go crazy and perhaps broke trying to get all things perfect when it comes to fly tying...simple I tell you.
In my silk thread stash I found this one to be as close to the color claret. Burgundy, Deep Red, how about Zinfandel? Oh well here are a couple of flies tied with claret silk. These are simple patterns and most times that's all it takes.
Woodcock and Claret. Claret silk thread, sparse mole dubbing and two turns of woodcock hackle.
