Why for my pic.


I chose the Hotpants tied spey style for the reasons it appeals to me. It is a fun fly to tie (if you are into dressing spey flies), I find the purple and red combination visually appealling, depending on size and approach it can be fished in the film or deeply sunk and most of all I have confidence in it. Plus I think it is a pretty and somewhat classy fly and I think it was Juro who said a few weeks ago, steelhead deserve better than to be caught on a crappy fly.
