Very cool Lars, great wing there too, the amount of different interpretation of Spey flies is really great in that they all work, !!!  The fish is the ultimate judge, and i can't see one ignoring this fly, nice work sir. !!!

Lars!

 

Thanks for this one. Do you use Spey patterns in Denmark?

 

What size is the hook - what hook is this? Any chance I could see a top view photo? I'm curious about the wing on this one.

 

I hope you're well. Per has made me an invite. Geert is prodding me. And how I would love to meet you and Per. Geert, I'm sad to say, I've met, and hope to see again even for all of his warts! Hahaha.

 

My best to you, dear friend. Happy newyear!

Dale

@Dale

 

Oh yes we use Spey flies here , and all over Scandinavia.

 The hook is a 5/0 " 5 min hook " ( made from a  bicykel stroke )

It would be great to once fish with you and Geert

Thanks Lars!

That's a big hook. You made it out if a bicycle spoke. Creative. Thanks. I appreciate the top view, especially with a spey. It looks like you were able to make the fibers behave even though they are tied in on the dark part of the feather. Good to see the shape and length.

Even though I first declined Per's generous offer, I am now thinking about it again. The issue is my health; it is a very long trip.

Hi to B.

Dear LARS,

 

Man this is a cool 'specimen' on that 'bycycle' iron hhahahahahahahahaha

 

Wonder what was Your 'inspiration' to tie it one one of those hooks !!!...ah a 'supreme' OUT OF THE BOX specimen...tied with a whole lot of skill !!! (wich YOU have a hundred times more then me...euh perhaps a bit less then hundred times but still considerably more than me - serious wink !!! yes I am allways honest in my replies)

 

psttttttttttttt doesn't it do fine to hear that 'new TEXAN' his mind who is going with the wind of 'upthere'...in the good DIRECTION....direction Denmark and a bit more 'south' (starting with the letter who suits him best B from BURBLER hahahaha)

 

Hope that Your vintage 'cabrio' OPEL GT  is securely 'stocked' away in his winter hibernation....that 'rust' may not be 'her' part of that lady ...

 

Let us dream further !!!...take care of Your beloved S. and the children

 

Geert and Nathalie

 

(one thing is sure Lars...early september I descend in Billund from the plane for a day or three four on the Skjern A..................didn't received a invitation for the Danish Fly Festival 2017 so far...ah not realy a  problem with that ...we will see...but in september I want to be on the rendez-vous (euh ofcourse if everything goes well for me 'familywise' (healthwise)
