    You can tell it's been raining cause I've been tying more than fishing lately....Hope that changes soon.
    Anyway here's one for the classic Spey guy's, and I'm one of them. The Lady Caroline is one of the very few Spey flies that have a tail which makes it kind of unique. I'm not sure if I like a tail on them or not
    but I've always liked the Lady.

    This is the largest Spey I've tied due to the fact blue eared pheasant is so short and finding bronze mallard long enough is a challenge, but I managed to tie and glue two bep hackles together and make a longer one. It actually worked...... Hope you like it. DSCN2267.JPG DSCN2269.JPG

    Gorgeous. One of my favorite patterns to both tie and fish.
