This time I was able to get a photo



The Silver Speal is my confidence, this time tied on an old stock #3/0, CS10/3 iron, re-shaped to elongate the shank and as always, de-barbed
More "fluff" in the butt this time up to the second rib. I found a choice feather, very thin shaft with lots of "fluff" and all natural black
A strong better than average wild fish hanging out in the softer water up close to a downed tree. It took mid swing ... my favorite take
Water was running high and cold with just enough stain to help this fish feel safe enough to take a grab.

Thanks gents
The Olson growled a sweet song a couple times yesterday afternoon

Upstate - I am super stoked that you swung that Speal in my honor !! It is a good looking flea ... love the brown hackle
