originally tied for the snoqualmie for fishing a favorite pool that has just the right current and bottom structure for a spey fly. Adapted from the black dog into a crossover pattern without the complex wing, this was the result.

Beatifull tie Highlander - what is your spey hackle ?BEP
I assume the throat is Silver Pheasant

Yes, hackle is Bep dyed black and throat is silver pheasant, however have also used widgeon and it looks o.k just a little more subdued.

Geezus Brian, you can tie some beautiful flies.

Brian: This is why all I did last Wed. was watch you tie. I have a long way to go.
Stunning fly. Absolutely, positively, without a doubt... stunning!
Think I'll go wallow in my mediocrity. (grin)

Yeah Baby! This is what I call a fishing fly!
Let's hope flies like this will cause people to get a serious case of SPEY FLY MADNESS.
One question: is the hackle wing and ostrich butt red (as it appears in the photo) or hot orange?

They are both red, my photography is seriously lacking I really need to work on that. Still trying to figure out this digital camera thing.

I have the pleasure of having a couple of Brian's flies sitting on my desk and I will tell you, they look even better in person!
...and not only is Brian a Hell of a tier but he is a great caster as well.
BTW-An ironic note of sorts...we have two Brian's (they both spell their name B-r-i-a-n) on Flytalk (Doublespey and highlander2), both of which drive the exact same model, exact same color pickup. Plus both are great Speycasters! WEIRD!!....play The Twilight Zone theme music
