Snoqualmie Spey

Here ia a fly which is the result of 3 years of research and development on the Snoqualmie river in Washington State. The fly exibits somer tones of salmon, coral, and peach with delicate gold trim and a bronze mallard wing. It is simple, elegant, and deadly. Try one yourself and let everyone know how you like it.

Hook - Alec Jackson Spey, Black
Thread - Pearsall's Gossamer, Salmonberry
Spey Hackle - Steelhead Anglers Spey Hackle, Shrimp Orange
Rib - Lagartun Oval Gold, Medium for 3/0-1.5, Small for 3-5
Body - Alec Jackson Japanese Silk Floss, Peach - PSF29
Collar - Gadwall Flank, Shrimp Orange
Wing - Bronze Mallard

Work hard and keep the body thin and round. Strip one side of the Spey hackle and keep it sparse. The collar has a nice natural brownish/pink/orange color and two turns is plenty. Try one on June 1!

All the materials are available at or at River Run Anglers in Carnation. Tying kits with instructions are also available.

Have Fun.....

Nice very nice fly.

If you ever feel bored and want to send some East, I'll gladly volunteer to house them in my fly box.
