So we're at 13 flies with flytire and BB in. I would never miss a chance to get a fly from either of their vises. Only problem is it can make mine look kind of puny in comparison. Baker's dozen is good for me.

Thanks for hosting again Bob I left you two para-quills in the bunch.

Hey, Flytire, those look awesome. Great work! Sort of reminds me, in a way, of a Pheasant Tail nymph, but different. I think the fish are going to like those.

Flytire, those are some good looking flies.

Nice set of BWO quill body midges are the first set to arrive.  Woodenlegs, thanks for the extras.

Silly question.

 

When you tie bodies with the quill?  Is it just that?  Using the stripped feather as the body?

I do apologise for my ignorance.

Yes, usually hackle quills, but also Peacock quills and even Porcupine quills.  One of the most famous is the Red Quill http://orvis.com/new...-quill-dry-fly/

Mine will head out today. Since I'm doing a major housecleaning in tying room I stuck random biot or quill flies on as an extra as I ran across them. Ran out of dun feathers halfway through tie so some of the small dries have a darker hackle. If size is right for what they're feeding on they'll do the job.
