Golden Olive Spey was tied by Ken Broadhead. You will find many more of his exceptional  flies at The Flies of Ken Broadhead.

Ken's Notes: Yuri tied this with a marabou feather sprayed with his wife's hair spray. I found this to be very difficult. 5 or 6 feathers later I figured it out but way to much to much trouble for me.

Notes: This is Ken Broadhead's rendition of the Yuri Shumakov tube fly (which see).
