Captain Walton, first real attempt at a married wing

Captain Walton from Bob Veverka's book Spey Flies and How to Tie Them...Obviously I need to read it again...

I'd like the wing to be lower profiled. Love those kind of swept back flies, not so much the higher profiled they tie for frames. Any comments and critiques are welcome, I'd like to get better

Hey Shaq,

You have a lot of time on your hand as of late.Looks good.I have yet to try a married.Love your other flies.

Been on the SR much?I will be at it Monday.

Hope all is well

With the hollow cries of a loon echoing off the mountains,the mist rises from the water like a thousand ghostly spirits freed at last of their earthly torments.It is here that my life falls into focus.

The Capt. Walton is a tough one to make look really good. The key with any married wing fly with a long hackle (like the Black Dog also) is to set the tail as low as possible. The lower you set the tail, the lower you will set the wings and the whole attitude of the fly will be sleek. You are off to a great start, though.


God, Family, Feathers.

Hi Shaq

First married wing? Great Shaq.
This fly is tough proportion and material.
Nice tie for first married wing and already say that from Aaron.
Thanks for the post.
