Thanks for the recipe! I know what I'm tying tonight maybe have to check stock on my wing material.

I thinks I might have to make a turkey order soon.

Is gled the wing style, or is Gled Wing the name of the pattern?

I've never heard of gled wing.

It looks like a typical spey wingset, although if separated, could be dee. Hard to tell with tipped fly.

Sorry.....spey newbee here.

Gled Wing is the name of the pattern. Gled is a type of bird that produced the original feathers for the wing set. It's a standard dee. Standard dee wing set.
