Default Blue bugs

Seems the last couple years I've noticed more fly patterns, usually nymphs, with blue components. Blue dyed feathers like mallard flank, blue body materials in vinyl d-rib, blue dubbing, blue wire, wingcases etc.

Well I've never seen any BLUE BUGS but the tyers promoting them claim they are wicked awesome trout catchers.

I may need to visit LRO for materials as I want to try out some of these patterns,,, hopefully they have blue components

Also wanting to try GLASS BEADS; particularly on midges and perhaps sulphurs... never used them and wonder if they work better... some folks claim they sparkle better than tung, silver, copper etc.

Anyone here tried blue on their bugs?
