These were coming off today, managed to scoop this one off the top and bring it in for a few shots.

This looks like the Black Quill we were talking about in the other thread recently

Nice clear pics of the flies - nicely done.

 

Did or were you fishing when collecting the sample? If so I hope you had some dark dry flies when you saw those and that the fish were reacting to them.

I was fishing but they weren't but a couple off rises. Switched to a nymph and got one. I only had about 20 minutes and I had my 3 year old, kid loves bugs

It is a black quill -- the dead give-away is the shorter middle tail.

It's a black quill but I bet a dark mahogany in the right size would get them too.

Mahoganies where I come from have dun(shades of grey) colored wings. They might be different where you are. Still a couple of great pictures of the actual fly.
