Default Chester's Spey ;

The first acquaintance I made while fishing for steelhead really liked my streamer 'The Grand Laker' so I made a couple for Chester. When I started to use more of a soft hackle 'Spey' style on some of the flies I Incorporated the color concepts of the feather wing streamers that were productive. The results are seen in the flies that are posted here, (the ones you've never heard of) here is another.
