Hook: Alec Jackson Spey #1.5
Thread: UNI 6/0
Butt: Seals Fur Fluo XX-Mix from Eivind Berulfsen
Rib: UNI-French Oval Medium
Hackle: Heron Black, Keough Hen Saddle Blue
A pattern I picked up from granbo-flyfishing.no, and since I’m on a spey roll these days I figured I could give the spey version a try. My change is the red butt: the article about the Rotenon gives floss or silkbraid as butt, but since I don’t have that and I do have a lot of the red UV seals fur, I thought I’d give that a try.
The fly is very lightly dressed and is very light in hand, even though it is on the large #1.5 spey hook. I like this pattern: I’ll dress up some on double and smaller single to keep in my box.
