MP's Purple X
First let me say that "MP's Purple X"
is a temp name; if someone knows an existing name for the pattern
as tied below let me know!
So Rob Estlund (www.SpeyDays.com)
gave me some great tips via critiquing MP's Black Laced Spey and
a discussion of the "Spey" definition. So Rob, this one's
for you! This Spey is tied in a style that is just about as traditional
as you can get!
