The Lady Caroline…

Just the nicest of all the Spey flies, I like the way the wing hugs the body and the ribbing shows throw. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but its the way the wing mount process positions the wing; that soft loop technique again.

The Carron Fly…

Rather unkemped in the hackle, the Carron fly still has a nice appearance. the hackle at the front needs a little care, strip one side and don’t end up winding the thick part of the rachis here; it hampers the wing mount trust me. Both flies are now framed along with the Grey Heron and they look good together. The most pleasing thing is that little room was left for the heads, so economical thread wraps with well waxed thread was the order of the day.
