Default Green Butt Skunks, classic and Dee

I tied a couple different versions of the Green Butt Skunk. The one on the left is the classic hair wing version, but I add four strands of crystal flash in the calf tail wing. I also tied the black body with black ostrich herl instead of chenile as it has better action in the water. The one on the right is a Dee fly version I tied with strip wings made of mottled oak turkey. The body of the Dee fly is floss instead of chenile and I made the rib of opal tinsel and oval silver tinsel. The tail is Amherst pheasant crest. Pocono has expressed some interest in a salmon fly swap. I was thinking if we did that maybe I would do something like one of these.

I got a new digital camera. It takes much better closeups than my old one did.

Great stuff! I started tying Spey flies about two years ago, it is sort of an addiction within an addiction! I'll have to watch for the salmon fly swap.

Nice flies Dan,

I'm thinking that with all the winter work I have to do I don't have time to do a dozen flies for a swap............................... but then it would be months before I had to have them done...........
