    I tied these up for my spey partner and friend . He's off to swing the fabled waters of the Spey in Scotland . I hope that these may entice a salar to give him a pull .

    Got room for another spey partner and or friend!

    Those wings are awesome, as is the rest of the fly, but those wings lay so nice. Thank you for sharing.

    Sometimes I make the eye loops longer on fishing flies to allow more freedom of movement . I've observed that the bronze mallard wing , when tapered and humped correctly , will gently wiggle the fly back and forth .
