FakeSpey Practice Flies

I'm off to Kola, Russia soon, so having Spey casting lessons to brush up my Single Spey, Double Spey, Snap T, Snake Rolls and everything else. You never practice with a real hook so for lesson 1 we did the usual - tying on a bit of wool. And as usual, it kept falling off. So for lesson 2, I tied a bit of fritz on a straight shank (no hook!). My instructor was so impressed, he asked me to tie a dozen for his other students. Now the Willy Gunn is a famous once I realised I was tying Fake Willys......the whole thing turned into an enormous joke! Here is what awaits my instructor for Lesson 3 !! Read carefully to the end!
