Charlie Steve,

Grow up?

Sure Charlie

But if you were smart, you would have told me to keep this one for water testing and
give you the second or third - that will be more refined.

So you can have it

Thanks, Flytyer
If I am working up something new, I tend to concentrate on color and composition, forgetting the basics.
The tippet is a little scrunched , the crest is too long.
Like I said the 2nd. and 3rd. will be better, unless it morphs into something different.
I get accused of never building the same thing twice.
Charlie knows my opinionated accuser.
(Ill shorten my pattern list when I grow up. )

Thanks for the input,

Charlie Steve,

flytyer makes some good points.

With that said I think you should turn that one over to me for further testing and make another one for your self.

flytyer Steve,

Overall a nice job.

However, to my eye the G.P. tippet tail veiling is too long. I prefer mine to be not more than 1/2 the length of the tail, and usually prefer them to be 1/3 tail length on my own flies. Also, I prefer to make the tip of tinsel alone and then make the rear 1/4 to 1/2 body out of floss because to my eye these make for a more ballanced fly.

Great colors, just the right amount of hackle, and excellent winging. Keep up the good work.

orange and yellow spey

On second look I would use a smaller jungle cock eye,
