Pinkie and Blue Boy

Stumbled across an interesting pattern while flipping through the Farlow Book. A Spey variation of Blue Boy that’s listed with my take on Pinkie.

The wing is a pair of saddle hackle tips with goose shoulder veiling set low.

The Pinkie looks to be the answer to the pink worm
Both are tied with excellence in my opinion.
Gorgeous flies !!

kinda reminds me of the good ol' days, when we had no idea what sex the baby would be. The pink stuff got returned to the store if he was a he, and the blue was returned if it were a girl. So, swing them both, let the fish decide.
