GP Spey Fly
GP Spey Fly in-stock, no sales tax - $50 orders ship free in USA.
The classic versions of the Spey and General
Practitioner flies are as effective and legendary as they are beautiful.
If a steelhead and salmon angler had to make
a choice between the two of these flies and could fish only one, the
process of choosing might take the better part of a fishing day and
require a Tylenol chaser.
Innovative Northwest steelhead, salmon, and
spey-casting angler Charles St. Pierre has
created a another unique fly by combining the best attributes of two
legendary flies to form a blended version of the classic General
Practitioner and Dee style Spey flies called “The GP Spey”.
With the addition of a spey length marabou collar and a longer spey
style hackle instead of the classic saddle hackle of the General Practitioner, the
fly has a slightly longer and larger profile to increase its action and its
ability to attract fish.pan style="mso-spacerun: yes" class="style4">
ribbed rear half of the fly along with the bright synthetic dubbed body creates
a subtle glow and flash to the core of the silhouette.
The tail, eyes, and shellback are classically set and add to the overall
natural appearance and appeal of the fly. It is dressed lightly to increase its
ability to sink and be cast easily for both single hand and two handed casters
using either floating or sinking lines.
The “GP Spey” and the color variations used for this series are
standards for anadromous fly fishing and have proven over the years to
be extremely effective on many of the steelhead streams of the Northwest
and British Columbia. This is a
personal favorite fly for summer and fall with low water conditions and
one of the best all around “Go to” flies in the angling business for
nearly any salmon or steelhead fishing situation and season.
