The Walt Geryk Spey Fly

This pattern is just one of the many master pieces created by Robert Lanzara for Walt Geryk. The Walt Geryk Spey Fly, spun in 2011,was created to be natural colored and true Steelhead fish getter and has proven itself very well throughout the Great Lakes Tributaries. A pleasant surprise is how extremely successful this pattern is performing for the Atlantic Salmon on the Miramichi. Many tight liners are now using it with great success! The most popular size hooks used today for these patterns are the Alec Jackson's 1.5s and 6s. These patterns were tied by Malinda Barna of the legendary Malinda's Fly, Tackle and Spey Shop in Altmar New York. Many tiers have simplified this pattern to allow for easier tying and the use easily accessible materials to meet the hook size requirements. The fishing version of The Walt Geryk Spey Fly are available at the shop in sizes 1.5 and 6. For more information these and other fish getter spey flys for salmon and steelhead, be sure to visit Malinda's Face Book Page or give her a call at 315-298-2993.
