A Question: Your top three
Besides the classifieds (because I'm a hopeless gear whore) I browse the Hooks, Feathers and Floss sub forum here the most. I have painfully little to offer so I don't say much until the drool and amazement over come me.
I think that I'm getting my tying space in order to commit to tying some spey flies. I'd like to ask you all though, what are your top three spey flies that you must have to fish? If you care to share photos and patters, great, if not I'm adept at finding my way around the internet where such details might be rustled up. The real reason for me to ask is that I, of course, want to tie in order to fish for success for steelhead. I can't possibly tie them all, but once I see some common listings in your top three I'll have a place to start.
On a side note, to the amazing fly tiers here, thank you for sharing your artistic presentations. They are mind blowing. The good news is that mine will look humble enough to fish whereas many of yours would never leave my mantle!
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
