Basic purple spey

Nother fly- Still have issues with the heads when I don't pay attention...!



Support Wounded Warrior Project, You will be so glad you do...

Take it to the water, and see if it works for you-

Support a local animal shelter, you'll be glad you did.

Lovely tie. Keep 'em coming!

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles (spey rods). Doug Larson

Take only photographs, retain only memories, leave only a good impression of yourself, perhaps just footprints.

Your lines, your rivers, your way!

I'd use fewer turns of ribbing and make the tail shorter (like in not longer than the hook bend as Charlie did on his fly). Other than these two rather minor things I'd change, nice tie.
