    I like it, Allen.

    Let me guess...

    You're taking tying lessons from Trout Fever?

    Hi Alan posting up wood duck isn't to difficult and done the same way as any other material. The key is having a prime wood duck feather where the fibers are all close to being the same length, that way you can tye it in all in one shot and trim off the stem.

    Appreciate the info Allen. I've noticed that a lot of your parachutes use feather barbs, and it gives them an interesting variegated look. Gotta' try that.

    Re: Quill Gordon Emerger

    Epeorus pleuralis aka the quill gordon, hatch from there nymphal shucks on the bottom of the stream and rise through the water column as duns. But that's a nice tie and I am sure the trout will take it.

    Thanks for the info JU but if you have ever been out and experienced a heavy hatch there are plenty of bugs up on the surface either cripple or dead with their shuck still attached .They also crawl out on the rocks stream side and get washed off as well shuck and all.

    Lucky you have been to see such a prolific hatch of the gordons. I have seen some good hatches but not of that caliper. I have seen cripples on the water and drowned duns, but very few.

    Agreed. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the hatch often comes off when either the weather or water temps are fairly cold and the emergers never get a chance to dry their wings and fly off before tumbling over in riffles or the wind. Same thing often happens with early Hendricksons on colder days. That fly would do well as a cripple or emerger and be a great fly for Quill Gordons.

    Re: Quill Gordon Emerger

    Either way...that is a pretty fly, looks buggy, looks like an emerging insect, fish are dumb..they will eat it.
    I get a bunch of quill gordons on my back porch every year from a very small creek by my house....I think the males look like Poncharella from C.H.i.P.s with thier big silver eyes...

    Bountiful tie BC. I have trouble getting the peacock to spin that uniformly. It is probably due to the fact my wife claims that I have oversized sausage fingers.
