Good evening, so this old style with cross bending and knots behind the wing.

Thank you so much Ronn! I so appreciate you, what do you think about my hooks, and I had made this fly?

Interesting crossover between Spey and Dee wings. Spey's were mostly mallard, low along the body, keel-style -- the top of the slips meeting like the bottom of a ship. The Dee, split-turkey wings were in the v-style, diverging from the head. A pretty fly!

There are so many variations on so many patterns I suspect any and all are correct ties...and this is no exception. Of course it doesn't hurt that I happen to like your work on this fly!!

George is right. Pryce-Tannatt (i think) has an illustration of several basic strip wing winging styles that were in common use. Take the style and make it your own! Again, good work.
