Orange Quill Spinner

The end of the winter is nowhere in sight, and any chance for decent fishing seems remote. I decided to seek solace in tying spent spinners, which remind me of warm summer evenings.


The tie:
#16 Hanák 130 BL hook
14/0 Sheer thread Grey
Coq de León tails
homemade Orange peacock quills (Hot Orange from Veniard) for abdomen
Tiemco Aero Dry Wing for wing
homemade hare dubbing for thorax

    1. Glad to be of service! This little guy hardly floats at all, so it is best reserved for the slickest glides, but when called upon performs well :)
