Emu Spade

Thread: Black Danville or 12/0 Benichi's
Hook: 4, 6 or 8 Alec Jackson Spey
Tail: Soft Deer Hair such as African Mouse Deer
Rear 1/3: Several Strands of Peacock Herl Twisted with Copper Wire and Wrapped Forward
Forward 2/3: 2-3 Strands of Black Emu Twisted with Copper Wire and Wrapped Forward
Hackle: Grizzly Hen or Soft, Webby Saddle

This is a variation of the fly that brought my first steelhead to hand, a chrome summer-run buck of about 12 pounds caught out of the famed Picnic Tables on the Stilly.

I fish variations of the Spade more then ever other fly combined in the summer. It is one Hell of a pattern.
