The Black Quill is a classic dry fly pattern used in fly fishing. It is designed to imitate the mayfly, which is a common insect found in many freshwater streams and rivers.
The fly is typically tied on a size 10-14 hook and has a body made of black thread or dubbing. It also features a wing made of either turkey or goose biots, which gives the fly its distinctive appearance.
The wing is tied upright, perpendicular to the hook shank, to imitate the upright position of a mayfly’s wings when it is resting on the surface of the water.
The Black – Quill is a versatile fly that can be used in a variety of fishing situations, but it is particularly effective during mayfly hatches, which usually occur in the spring and early summer. The fly can be fished on the surface of the water or in the film, depending on the behavior of the fish.
Overall, the Black Quill is a great fly to have in your fly box, especially if you fish in areas with mayfly hatches.
Usually available in the following hook sizes: 10 | 12 | 14
