Perchy Spey & Tube

Part of being a commerical fly tier is that it gets harder and harder to tie flies for yourself!  This isn't a bad thing, but I find myself getting irritated with patterns in my head that I want to experiment with.  It eventually gets to a point when I actually do get to experiment the end result can be very satisfying.  I came across these barred dyed artic sheep patches from Dave at and I knew right away what I wanted to do with them.  The hair fibers on these patches are easily 8 inches long and the barring makes them extra fishable.  The vernewto festered in my head for over a year, and now the perchy spey came to head in just a few short weeks.  Now I gotta take these out for a test drive very soon.
