Grenadine Spey
R. J. Brown
Hook: Daiichi 2052 #1.5, nickel finish, Alek Jackson Spey.
Tip: medium flat copper tinsel, 2 turns.
Tag: claret uni-floss, twice as wide as the tip.
Tail: Lady Amherst pheasant crest, short.
Rib: 5 turns of medium flat silver tinsel, led by medium oval silver tinsel, with fine silver oval tinsel as a counter-rib.
Body: rear 2/3 orange uni-floss, front 1/3 yellow-orange SLF, using Syd Glasso's split floss technique.
Hackle: natural blue eared pheasant.
Collar: guinea.
Cheeks: jungle cock, drooping.
Wing: goose shoulder, orange with 2 barbs of claret married to the bottom, set low, but vertical style.
Head: red.
Note: Named because it looks like grenadine and orange juice before it is stirred. Mainly because of the wings, this is arguably more like a Dee fly than a Spey fly.
