3 Kings on a Mission

The flies were tied on 5/0 L Heritage Blind Eye salmon hooks.
The Black King (left) has a black heron hackle. The Green King (center) and Purple King (right) have Half Bronze Rooster Coque hackles. Picture was taken with a Canon DSLR Rebel XT camera.

The length of the bronze mallard wings stretched my available feathers to their limits. I could not go one mm longer.

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

Sweet Doug. I love well tied Spey flies...and these definitely qualify for that "well tied" classification!!

These flies were definitely tied with one purpose in mind: where's that king hiding?! Well done.

Just gorgeous my friend
Add a Red King to the mix and you have a quartet of killers !!
A Carron fly would be the only other addition ... call it the joker


Have you Swung a Spey Fly today ??
