    There's always been a few Spey flies I've wanted to tie but didn't have acceptable hackles. I now have some coque that I feel is close enough to Spey cock to use. After attempting the Kelson trio I figured I'd do the three kings that I've always wanted to do. Red King 2/0 XL, Green King and Purple King both on a CS10/3 3/0... Anyway, hope you like them...
    Thanks for looking,
    Mark

    Dang Mark, those are too pretty to fish. They'd look great framed over that background however. VERY nicely done! Thanks for sharing. I'm getting so shaky that the once gorgeous flies I used to craft now look like they were tied using a blender (but I'll keep right on tying while I wait for the medicos to figure-out a fix.).

    Thanks Jim and Eunan, I really appreciate your kind words.
    Jim, best of luck and just keep tying, after all it's just fishing and we're alot pickier then the fish.....

    Three superb ties there, Mark. I am really liking the Red King. The floss rib on the Green King is especially nice.
