Spruce Fly Faux Spey

Got the idea for this, in particular the winging sequence, from watching Davie McPhail's Orange Heron Spey vid. Took this as an opportunity to get some use out of a redhead skin (plus the fact that I have no blue eared pheasant or decent teal flank).


hook - Dai Riki 899 #6
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tag - tinsel gold
tail - peacock swords
rear body - floss red
front body - peacock herl
body hackle - duck feather (redhead used here)
collar - flank (redhead used here)
wing(s) - hen badger (2 per side)

Regards,
Scott

That dog will hunt!

My kinda fly. Love it.

I had a blue eared pheasant skin in my hand last fall, but I resisted buying it. Your post makes reminds me there are other options.
