Very nice!

I got to see Shewey tie a spawning purple in Albany OR this year. Two things that make his fly stand out are the long jungle cock cheeks that extend to the end of the body and his own dyed purple maribou that is darker than what I can buy from a local fly shop.

You've nailed the proportions well. That fly is worthy of a nice fish!

Very cool Mark, I also noticed in his pictures the maribou was much darker. Thanks for your kind words. ...

Very very nice.
The wing is not the easiest to do without building up bulk. You nailed it though.

Get swinging and have yourself "Spawning Purple Party"
