Dear SWITCH (even I am sure YOU have a nice forename toooo to 'direct myself' to YOU  hahahaha)

 

I am unfortunatly not at all a 'SPEY' or 'DEE' fly specialist...

 

On other hand I realy (and I am honest) ...I LOVE each 'Spey or Dee' fly who comes to our 'forum screen'...

 

I love the 'fishyness' of their 'lines' and 'shapes'...

 

Looks a great rendition of this 'popular' classic ONE !!! (real heron or substitute...hard to tell 'here' (I know some of the 'real heron' feathers can be a bit 'darker' than the usual grey)  wink !!!)

 

thanks for joining and posting Your work here !!!...allways wellcome !!!

Dear Geert! 

 

I was made this hook from Mustad 2/0 and Forming this hook by gas torch and schlosser tools, then I had hardened about 870 degree per Celsius it in machin oil. After that I  had made the stabilization of metal in the temperature about 480 degree per Celsius. And then I have been tied this fly. It's not the easiest way for  tying salmon fly, but I like it step by step :)

 

Thank you for your's attantions to me.

 

Aleksander.
