Spey Dog E
Spey Dog : Francis Francis. 1867.
Body : Black Pig's wool; up this is then wound up some broad silver tinsel in widish rings. Over the tinsel
is laid on a large black feather, it can be hardly called hackle, with a lightish dun tip taken from the side
of the cock's tail.The feather is dressed the wrong way, so that the hackle stands out abruptly, and it is
carried round the opposite way to the tinsel as some of the tinsel crosses it; Over this hackle is wound some
gold tinsel, not side by side with the silver tinsel, but quite independent of it.
Throat : Teal.
Wings : A good wad of Golden Pheasant tail, with two long strips of grey Mallard with brownish points over it.
* The fly can be varied by using a brown hackle and Turkey instead of Golden Pheasant tail, add also orange silk between
