Blue & Gold Spey

Body: UNI-Floss Doc.Blue
Rib: UTC French Tinsel Oval Gold Medium
Hackle: Spirit River Spey Hackle
Throat: Guineafowl
Wing: Veniard Mallard Duck Bronze Shoulder Medium

A rather quick test to work with the Mallard wing and the spey hackle. The Blue/Gold in the body came out really good and I think the spey hackle will give it a good deal of life in the water.

Body: Horns Soft Salmon Dub Kingfisher Blue
Rib: UTC French Tinsel
Wing: Brown & Blue templedog, silver flash
Sides: JC

This one started with the dubbing: I got some good kingfisher blue from Horns the other day and I built this fly around that color. The dubbing is great and I found some templedog that matched in color. I really tried to keep it down in number of materials and not have it super-big when it came to the wing. This one I will tie up in different variations before I even have fished it: one that I just “know” will work when it hit the water

Body Hackle: Schlappen White & Grey
Throat: Spirit River Spey Hackle Bright Blue
Side: The Fly Co Ringneck Kingfisher Blue, JC
Wing: Veniard Mallard Duck Bronze Shoulders Medium

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.
