Flies: How to Tie Them
Bob Veverka, passionate about Spey flies, gives us the history
and background on classic Spey, Dee, Don, Eagle, and Steelhead
Spey patterns, including step-by-step instructions for tying
the Lady Caroline, White-Winged Akroyd Dee, and Orange Heron.
The chapter on materials is loaded with insights from decades
of tying, and the descriptions of salmon-fly materials will
quickly become a standard reference for all those who tie salmon
or steelhead flies. The special challenges of tying Spey and
Spey-style flies, winding the long body hackles, wrapping the
collars, mounting the unique wings, finding substitutes for
materials no longer available, are explained and solved. Although
the original patterns from the River Spey and River Dee have
fathered a large, varied, and ever-growing family, a common
theme ties all these flies together. Over 160 patterns, including
Akroyd, Ghost, Golden Pheasant Spey, and Steelhead Sunrise;
Descriptions and what to look for in hooks, pheasant and marabou
feathers, types of wool, and other materials used to tie Spey
flies today and in the past.
