Hot Peacock Spey


Gotta love this pattern. A truly quick tie (no crazy ribbing, just 5 materials to tie in!) I like the looks a lot, and it's a very affordable tie.

Pattern (as tied)
Hook - Salmon, Size 2
Tag - Fine Oval Tinsel, Silver
Body - Rear = Flourescent Red Floss, Front = Peacock Herl (X 2)
Body Veil / Underwing - Golden Pheaseant Tippets
Spey Hackle - Gray
Throat / Collar - Omitted hear, but normally palmered mallard flank
Wing - Mallard Flank (traditionally bronze, I used the regular cream here)
Thread - Black

Another more traditional variation on the same pattern:
