Feather wing

Been on the feather wings as of late waiting for this never ending rain to slow down and let the rivers drop back into shape! In the meantime I’ll keep tying and waiting.

BAMM !!!!

I opened the page and that fly just hit me in da face !!
That's got all the right stuff ... love the two stage wing my friend
I don't think a saddle wing could get any sleeker than that one, that's a friggin' missile !!


Have you Swung a Spey Fly today ??

Mike said many of the right things, but he forgot one. The wing has 'Pop' and it certainly stands out! Great job, Nick.

That was not a bad cast. I was just casting to the nearby fish.

Ok, I'm stepping away from the vice for awhile after seeing that fly!! Checked every box for me. Hands down, it is a beauty for sure.
