did these a little while back while playing with some coyote fur, went to a guide friend of mine, used some wing-n-flash spun under the spun coyote fur, love how it kept the wings high like the traditional speys. look up natures spirit fly tying...

terrific

I love your flies. The sure look like they'd draw a tug - and hold up really well. I enjoy learning new uses of materials. Did you put the fur into a dubbing loop to make that hackle?

Yup, I made a dub loop, kinda like a dub brush, you'll have to play with it till the desired result is achieved

Yeah I could do that. In away from home and don't know if I have any fur on me now. I'll look when I get back to the hotel.

how?

How do you tie in the coyote fur to look like that? Is there a video I can see anywhere? Thanks! I like those!

These are sweet Matt. I have some winter possum, I use the same way. It looks very similar and moves nice in the water. Bet those two will get a tug.
