MP's Buckwing Speydace

This is totally a fusion fly; a combination of the Black Nose Dace Streamer and the Spey Style. The use of schlappen will add some movement to the pattern while a simplified Black Nose Dace color scheme gives great potential. I've never liked the red coloration in the Black Nose Dace pattern so I've omitted it. Tie in the Hackle first, then add the wing (this causes the grey schlappen to be pushed down underneath the white bucktail rather than also coming up over the "top" of the fly like a collar).

Hook - Daiichi 2161 (here tied on a #1)
Body - Flat Silver Tinsel
Ribbing - Fine Oval Tinsel, Silver
