Foxee Prawn for Steelhead (Spey Fly from Charles St. Pierre of Washington State) & The Stinger Hook Setup

St. Pierre's Foxee Prawn

St. Pierre's Foxee Prawn

The fly has the Temple Dog style wing, but kind of in dual form. The body is not smothered by too much palmered hackle fibers and the electrical energy coming off these makes them appear to come with batteries (did I write that?). The fly looks to be pretty aerodynamic and the color combo’s would be interesting.  The wing would not tangle with the stinger hook and the sparkle dubbing puts out light as well.

The flies originator is Charles St. Pierre, the owner of Northwest Speycasting near Seattle, Washington. I shot these just setting on some paper w/ the little Pentax Optio W60 (my tuck in my pocket fishing camera). I didn’t pull out the Macro lens with better lighting for the best affect…to do justice to the patterns.  You get the idea. Arctic Fox, Goat or Temple Dog for the wing will work. Batteries not included.

Stinger Setup for Spey Flies

Stinger Setup (Waddington Shank & Stinger)

Stinger Setup (Waddington Shank & Stinger)The Waddington Shank (double eyed shank) is affixed to the Stinger Hook by Berkeley Fireline (I could be wrong, but I believe the above pic is using a shank with the bend cut off and regular backing material, which was typical until Fireline came to the front...Fireline is stiffer and helps maintain the alignment of stinger to shank.)
