River Special Blue was tied by Ken Broadhead. You will find many more of his exceptional  flies at The Flies of Ken Broadhead.

Ken's Notes: This is one my versions of Per Hansens River Skern Special. There is no River Skern in California, I call them "River Specials". I don't use rabbit strips so I substitute with various hairs. The plastic discs are available @ pro tube, and they simply slide over the hook eye.
