Bloody Elver Spey
« on: February 23, 03:23PM »
Bob Veverka inspired me to tie this one this morning.  The Bloody Elver Spey.  The tip is metallic silver overlaid in opal Mirage tinsel, fro a funky effect.  2/0 TMC hook  for the opening day box.  Enjoy!

People pilfering pics & claiming them as their own.  A few of us had pics used on Indian & African sites by flytiers there. No worries here, just Photobucket is also a public site.

Yeah  I  have  several  used  on  sites  from  India etc  selling salmon and trout flies flies.  Sadly  that  is  only a  save  and crop  from being  used  anyway   it  does not  stop them.
