    All are very nice fly tying but I'm looking at the last one as a fish getter. All may do well but that dark one would be what I reached for.

    Laurie, that fiery spey is firmly buried in my lip at the moment. I have to tie some of those. I will likely be sending you an email very soon!

    Definitely the dabbler!! Low light early morning typical low water fall, everyoe else is swinging half a chicken, that is the fly that will send the drag screeming.
