    Nice looking flies. I'm sure you'll have some fun with those.

    Your married wing looks better than the dee! Dee's are for people who can't tie married wings

    Re: here is a first attempt at married winged spey fly

    is there a trick to marrying the wings? or is it just practice till you get the feel for it ?

    Re: here is a first attempt at married winged spey fly

    Nice tye TF well done ! If you would like to see some informative information on the subject of married wings check out Davie Mcphails videos on youtube an abundance of great information via video so you can see how it's done . If I can find the video I posted last year to another sight I will post it for you. Also check out Ron Lucas online there is an abundance of info there as well..

    Re: here is a first attempt at married winged spey fly

    i think the second one came a little easier you just have to make sure you dont flip the feather!! haha thats what i was doing wrong once i figured that out they just went together easily.


    one question when you have a 1/2 slip and your ready to tye it in this is when the death grip comes to play right?

    TF when you have your left and right wing ready you match them up measure them against your body then pinch and tye them in.Two to three firm wraps will do to hold them in place at which point you can trim the waste.

    Re: here is a first attempt at married winged spey fly

    I never realized that dee flies were for people who couldn't marry wings. I always thought they were just a diffrent style of salmon fly developed on the river Dee. Guess still have alot to learn.

    Beads? We don't need no stinkin beads.

    Re: here is a first attempt at married winged spey fly

    When you are tying a fly like these :




    I found it best to have a nice well lit table with a fair amount of room , Get your wing materials together and construct all the wings you are going to use at one time. Doing them in this manor insures your wings will be some what consistent as you are concentrating on building just the wings. Build all your rights first so as not to mix up the fibers when you are done build the lefts.
