Glentanar II

I'm going to have to break these chains and get out to chase a Steelhead one of these days. For now....tying flies will have to do. Happy Easter all!

Outstanding, fit for both wall and wallet
Your style of dressing reminds me of a vintage era ... so very cool!!
Are you palmering that heron through the last body segment or as a collar??
I do both ways. Just as a collar works very well in clear waters.
Your cinnamon turkey is pristine and wing placement is perfection in my eyes. This is a hunting flea and it shall hunt for you.

Have you Swung a Spey Fly today ??

Thanks guys. The hackles I'm working with are pretty large and I simply wrap at the front.

BTW, that box of yours looks pretty interesting
Any chance for a couple of photos??
The yellow hackled, black body and wing, with the blue guinea collar, bottom right side of the photo looks very interesting
Same as the chartreuse body, peacock wing, blue mallard collar ...

You're observant Mike. The first is a Thunder and Lightning Dee variant I lifted from Havard Asbo. Possibly something I stumbled across while surfing Pinterest. The second is a Helmsdale variant from Kelson's The Salmon Fly. A couple vintage examples are shown over at Colin's site in Not a Dee Fly section and in the new Hardy Book as well. I added yellow heron sub as hackle and some blue mallard flank as collar.

Here's the rest.......an incomplete set.....

Wing is dyed orange peacock wing. The pattern is an Orange Eagle. A variation of Veverka's Scarlet Eagle as I had no red spey marabou and had to improvise.

Thank you for the peek into your boxes and for taking those extra photos for me, very inspirational.
I've gazed at the Helmsdale pattern several times, but never gave it a go, just never tickled my fancy, however your variation has me a new believer in the pattern. I can see offering this fly within the tidal areas of a salmon river out east
I like the yellow hackle T&L variation too ... some excellent ideas in that box of yours
