Another beautiful salmon fly from Davie. The spey hackle used on the fly is a blue eared pheasant dyed black. Just has a killer look to the final profile of that fly. Another amazing fly, enjoy.

It’s cold here today, so i figured we could use some warm water, tropical fly representation. This one is called a Red and Black Death. I don’t tie much for saltwater flies, so it’s nice to see how to build them. The marabou between the saddles looks like a nice way to keep things separate. There is also a nice little tutorial on finishing the fly using the Tuffleye resin. Between the Zap-a-gap and the Tuffleye, this hook is going to be bullet-proof. The toothy critters are out gunned here. If you aren’t headed somewhere tropical, put a few of these into your Pike box. You’ll be happy you did.

This is a great video from IronAltar. It’s a nice large western style Golden Stonefly dry fly with a bullet head and some rubber legs. The body and head are going to make this fly sink proof and give you the ability to tie on a heady dropper nymph. The video is well done, and I would love to see some more videos from this tyer. (Sorry, I don’t know your name). Happy tying.
