Coastal Spade comes from the bench of Samonfly.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. With my apologies this is not tied on one of Alec’s beautiful hooks but fish still like it."
