Spring Steel Swap

Juro,

Thanks for making the time to pull this swap together. I am looking forward to seeing the what the others have put together.

For the tubes I provided siwash hooks that I closed the eye on, I now use a daichi 2451 #2. The giant Speys are tied on 5/0 Partridge Salmon hooks.




2" Aluminum Tube
Orange floss body
Medium tinsel rib
Rear Hackle Black Saddle (can be palmered)
Hackle Black Marabou
Front Hackle (Optional), black saddle or peacock body










Hook: Upeye Steelhead Salmon hook
Tag; Optional Mylar Tinsel
(Underbody hook shank wrapped with tinsel)
Body (rear); Flouresent Orange or Green
Rib; Mylar Tinsel
Body Front; Purple Seal or Seal substitute
Hackle; Black Marabou
Collar: Black Saddle (I also like Teal)
Wing; Peacock
