In my opinion, to call this wonderful style of flies using more modern materials and more diverse hackles Spey flies, limits the true creative flair that has been implemented on our side of the pond. Don't get me wrong, Spey, Dee, Don and British Feather Wings are wonderful examples of the style of that day. As the Northern European casters move to tubes in Temple Dog and Sun Ray style, we for sure will follow suit. I just think that today we should call this style of flies our own. I call them North American Collar Flies.
