Default Feather Wing, More of The Same;

With a pile of purple feathers on my bench I figured I'd get creative............. I meant well when I started but got a little carried away when I started making a wing and the hook ended up a bit full. But then Big Fat flies are what I catch a bunch of fish on and this is Fat. Purple and black were good for me last year so I'll probably make up some more but I gotta quit load'n em up so much.

I like the colors. I'll bet it fishes well, but after all of that you almost hate to see a fish whack it.

Nice fly, Ard.

I like the colors and I'll bet the action in the water will be really good with the long hackle. I've always thought that the Spey and Dee patterns have a real on-the-water advantage; simply because they look so animated with the long, flowing hackle.

I would think that once cast, what you''ll see in the water will be the vertical wing with the hackle relatively tight to the body and moving as you stip in the fly. So, really not much bulk at all.

I bet you'll be lovin' that fly come runoff! I'm lovin' it right now!! I've notice, with my tubes, the bulkier head gives a fly way better action. A sparse collar the materials move in a snakelike up and down wiggle, with a bulky collar everything moves side to side and really swims. I bet your fly has killer movement really appearing alive as she swings!

We will have to wait until May to find out what happens with this winters flies. I will make more purple and black / brown flies up because last years top producer in the early were the Santiam Spectrum and they were made full, not sparing the materials. The pattern and recipe for the Spectrum is on the Alaska steelhead & salmon threads. It is not an easy fly if you follow the originators tying instructions as I did but the fly was a killer when you swung it through the rivers. Because of this discovery I made more of them and made them all according to the recipe. You know the saying; 'If it isn't broke don't fix it', it worked well so I made no alterations. This thing I posted here is purely experimental but it has the right colors................
