Spey Hackles - Lady Caroline
By Bob Petti
Possibly the most famous of all spey flies, the Lady Caroline.
Definitely the Lady Caroline is one of the all time classic spey flies. Heck, it's well known as a killing salmon fly in general. One of the oldest spey flies, it is still used today. The combination of materials and the classic styling make it one of the most attraction flies I've ever encounered.
