Sol Duc Spey

tied by CharlieD
Fly Type: Spey,
Target Species: Steelhead,
Recommended Region: Northwest US,
Material List:
Hook: Up eye salmon hook.
Tag: Flat silver tinsel.
Rib: Oval silver tinsel.
Body: Rear 2/3: hot orange floss; front 1/3: hot orange goat dubbing.
Body hackle: Yellow saddle hackle, long and webby.
Throat: Black heron substitute.
Wing: Four hot orange hackle tips.
Head: Red.

Tying Instructions: While this is a relatively simple fly to tie, the wing can be a bit tricky. The hackle tips used in its construction should be tented over the body. Flattening the stems of the hackles at the tie in point, and slightly twisting them with a pair of flat nosed pliers or tweezers before tying them in can achieve this.
Presentation Tips: Syd Glasso is considered by many to be the father of the steelhead spey fly. His flies were beautiful and elegant yet simple in there construction. This one he created for fishing, of course, the Sul Duc River.
