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
