Southern Oregon Fly Tyers
Meeting on Tuesday, September 11, 2018
6:00 PM
8401 Old Stage Road, Gold Hill


These flies and recipes are from Dave Roberts. Dave was also the recipient of the national Darwin Atkin Lifetime Achievement Award from Fly Fishers International, Inc. at the annual meeting in August.  We should be proud to have him counted amongst our members.  


Soft hackle Spey
Tag: silver tinsel 
Body: Orange seal fur (will have 3 different subs)
Rib: Oval silver tinsel 
Body hackle: Purple Spey hackle ( for the small10&12s) we will use a couple subs like hen or schlappen
Front hackle: Orange guinea fowl head black 
Note: I will supply hooks.
It isn’t necessary, but I use orange thread for body construction, and smaller size thread for nice small head (or as small as you can make on a double hook)


################################################
Yates Variant dates back to around 1400's as an Atlantic Salmon fly.
Tag: Gold oval tinsel 
Body: Orange silk (you can use subs, but silk is what I think makes this pattern work) I will explain at the meeting, if you don’t show you loose. 
Under hackle: (you might only want to use this hackle) Brown soft hackle. Mottled.
Over hackle: Orange dyed Guinea, large spots.
