Well, this was interesting, a couple of firsts in this pattern for me.
My first attempt at using a double rib. I like the way it looks and I need to play with that technique some more.
It was also the first time to try Spey hackle. Ugh, is about all I have to say. Very different to work with. I used too large of a hook for the feather I used, the hackle should have extended passed the hook bend. I think if I had started it at the third rib instead of the fourth rib it would have looked better. That type of hackle is just plain weird and I'm going to tie with it some more to get used to it.
