Trout Spey Flies
Trout Spey 1
Spey flies are normally associated with fishing for salmon and steelhead. The flies are beautiful and very effective. The long sweeping lines that are created by various feathers used give them a look similar to the Rangeley style of streamer fly. My experience with Spey flies is zero, having only fished for steelhead once and the Spey was not the fly of choice for me at that time.
But my experience with a salmon fly tied down to a size which enabled me to use it for trout has proved to be an over whelming success. This led me to tie a few trout sized Spey flies. I did up a few over the last couple of weeks but have not fished them. With hope I look forward to them being successful with the trout I pursue.

The hooks used in all three are Saber Steelhead/Salmon size 8...I may change that if the hook is to large, or to heavy.
