    That is a beautiful fly. When I upgrade my vise, I would like to try tying a spey fly. It looks pretty difficult.

    BEAUTIFUL fly!!!! Speys aren't that hard to tie, the more you practice, the better you'll get. The standard spey wings are a bit trickier, but I like the hackle tip wings personally. Marty truly made a gorgeous fly though, perfect. Plus it's SOOOOOOOOOOO fishable.

    Very nice! I like the colors a lot! I know that I can't tie it that well, but I may need to give it a try.... :cool:
