MP's Simplified Purple Guinea Spey


I found the Purple Spey pattern in Matt Supinski's "Steelhead Dreams" book. This simplified version removes the Black Hackle Tip Wing. This simplified spey is a great use for leftover & smaller spey hackles by tying on a smaller hook, and it's REALLY EASY tie!

Pattern (as tied)
Hook - Salmon, here tied on a size 4 (although I think they sent me 6's in a 4 box!)
Body - Purple Floss (use a silver flat tinsel underbody if you don't want the body to look black underwater)
Spey Hackle - Purple
Collar - Natural Black Guinea
Thread - Black
