You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

This is a really cool fly...
It's really fishy, and I love the colour scheme and the wispy heron...

If you really want to explore this further, I really suggest that you find a copy of Veverka's "Spey Flies & How to tie Them", along with Shewey's "Spey Flies & Dee Flies".
Not any fly, tied on a salmon hook and meant for swinging, is really a "spey" or a "Dee".

I really admire your new found passion for tying, and I just know that you will love these books, and the insight that they provide, regarding the design of these flies, and the tying techniques that they require.

Thanks for sharing.....

Nice work here but don't give up on the tubes....Remember that you shouldn't judge a fly based on how it looks in the vice...flies should be judged on how they fish and look in the water.

Those that haven't fished with tubes may make the mistake of doing that...

Kool-fly

Then you must be aware that the typical spey sporst a strip-wing... strips from the tertiary wing coverts of the mallard more specifically (AKA "bronzed") - but strips of feathers none the less.

Some conversions work out nicely - others not so well.
