Undertaker Spey was tied by Salmonfly.Net Contributing Fly Tyer Clifford J. Carstens. You can see more of Cliff's flies at The Flies of Cliff Carstens .

Webmaster notes: This Undertaker Spey was adapted as a spey by Cliff from the Undertaker originated by the late Warren Duncan, proprietor of Dunc' Fly Shop in Saint John New Brunswick. Mr. Duncan, who passed away in 2007, popularized the hairwing version of this fly as an Atlantic Salmon fly for the Miramichi River. There is a great tribute written about Warren Duncan, entitled "Remembering Warren Duncan", written on The Art of Angling Journal website.
