Quill Gordon Wet
The Quill Gordon Wet is a classic fly pattern used in fly fishing, particularly for targeting trout. It is named after the Quill Gordon mayfly, which is a common insect in many trout streams in North America.
The Quill Gordon Wet is designed to imitate the nymph stage of the Quill Gordon mayfly, which is an important food source for trout in many streams. The fly pattern is typically tied on a hook with a dark brown body made of peacock herl and brown hackle fibers, and a pair of brown quills are used for the wings. The body of the fly is slender and tapered, and it is often weighted with a bead or wire to help it sink into the water.
When fishing the Quill Gordon Wet, anglers typically use a technique called “wet fly swing”, where the fly is cast across the current and allowed to swing downstream. This technique mimics the natural movement of a swimming insect and can be very effective at enticing strikes from trout.
The Quill Gordon Wet is a popular and effective fly pattern that has been used by fly fishermen for many years. It is often used in early spring when the Quill Gordon mayflies are hatching, but it can be effective throughout the fishing season.
Usually available in the following hook sizes: 10 | 12 | 14 | 16
