    Gonna order two for my own Christmas present. What two colors would everyone get if only two. Remember they're 30 bucks a whack.

    For classic patterns, black and gray.

    But if you have a favorite color for ties (orange, pink, etc.) go with that. I like the SolDuc Spey (my take on it anyway) so yellow was a must for me.

    I revel in spreading the disease :)

    How about I send you some hackles and you can give them a spin before you throw down the $$. Have you seen bird fur? It's about $8 a pack and makes some neat Speys. The first fly is with the Spey hackle in question and the second is tied with bird fur.
