This is a fly I turn to in summer/fall when there is some color in the river, just like George McLeod does himself. Not enough to completely color it up; but enough so that it is not gin clear on to about having 4' of visibility.

Johnson's DEEP PURPLE SPEY was tied by Walt to be a spey style fly with the colors of the PURPLE PERIL. It could be considered to be a spey version or variant of the well-known McLeod's purple fly.
