The Lady dressed by Anne …..

The Lady dressed by Paul ….

Spey flies leave the fly dresser with many unanswered questions regarding proportion. These two examples were dressed using the interpretation of the  fly dresser; neither of which may be correct but, in the absence of the fly police, they look great. Once again, the pupil has “done great”, bronze mallard is a difficult material at the best of times; soft loops are the order of the day. The wings “like the keel of an upturned racing boat”  (Pryce-Tannatt) is the order of the day. the head on the first fly although long is in proportion with the streamlined look of the fly. am I proud of the pupil, you bet, a great effort ……

Regards

Paul
