I have decided that I am going to makes some changes in what I do this year...

God forbid,

I have and am still tying up a full box or two of Lady Carolines and spey fly in different sizes....I have a leaf of mixed wings and a few Dee's....

My plan is to fish the LC's and speys as much as possible and if I have to, change up with the mixed and dee's....

This is extremely hard for me as I love my waddingtons and tubes...love me some tubes....

This weekend i am taking a tying class with BigWilly again and am going to see about Dee's on tubes maybe??? Whore that I am...

Don't know if this helps but there are over ten different spey patterns and I at um hard..
