With the theme “sky is the limit” I started with the blue as a center piece and decided to got for a spey-style fly composed around blue/white/grey. This is the first spey-style fly I have done and I think the colors and flow of it came out ok. The Wing could be a bit flatter, but I did have some issues tying them in.



52 weeks: 9 – Rule of thirds haven’t spent much time with married wings, but with the “Rule of thirds” theme I figured I could do a 3-colored married wing. Don’t have the technique down by a long shot, but this is one of those things that I should work more on but I haven’t prioritized.
