Green Butt Skunk Spey
Everyone should have a Green Butt Skunk in their
box, just in case. Well, I tied my spey-style; this popular pattern
has so many renditions I'm not going to apply the "MP"
lable to this variation, but simply present the materials used and
encourage you to make your own Green Butt Skunk! I consider my hairwing
speys to be a "Fusion Spey"; elements from hairwing salmon
flies and traditional spey flies FUSED to create a new pattern or
