Charles Barton: Universal Spey by The Weekly Fly

I have been fly tying stuff onto hooks for a long time. It began with poppers and jig heads, which served the fishing I was taught to do by my father. By the age of twelve, I was approaching burn out from fishing the warm water mud pit impoundments of central Arkansas. Dear ol` Dad saved me, though, when he took me on a float trip on the White River in northern Arkansas. It has taken all the years since to get enough fur and feather into my bloodstream to achieve the level of addiction I now have for fly fishing, and tying. I justify my habit by tying at conclaves and other events, from coast to coast. I am proud to be a Proteam member for Whiting Farms and on the Pro Staff for Daiichi. It is always good to use the best. I own and operate Tanfly, LLC from my home in Little Rock.
Have fun and tie one on for me!

Also: It catches everything and anything, salt and fresh. Used a lot for smallmouth bass and large trout.

Recipe:

Hook: Daiichi salmon fly hooks size 3/0 down to size 10
Thread: Clear Mono
Eyes: Barbell or bead chain (he uses Wapsi “Real Eyes”)
Tag: Holographic Tinsel wound down the hook bend and back up
Body: Pine squirrel zonker palmered to just behind the eye.
Collar: Whiting Spey feather, as many wraps as you can get.
