Hatching Quills…

Using quills for bodies on dries and emergers is a very old technique. I use peacock and rooster feathers for the most part. Peacock is the easiest to use. If you are using rooster feathers, put them in a little bowl of lukewarm water for a while. They will be much easier to work with. One can also use a Pantone to give them different shades. The flies are tied on TMC 206BL wich is a fantastic hook for mayfly emergers.

I am sorry about the picture quality on these flies. I am currently working with the problem and building a light box…
