Claret Guinea Spade comes from the bench of Salmonfly.Net Contributing Fly Tyer William Lovelace.
Bill's notes: "Northwest legend Alec Jackson has fancied up the Spade with his flashier well known versions of Arnold’s original. This variation uses a dry fly quality grizzly hackle. A hen hackle could also be used."
