It's a good looking fly, Jimmy. Moose tail is different than we usually use on quill bodied mayfly imitations. A barred wing works on most, though.
If a fly is named for the body it'd be red quill.
What we really care is the name a trout gives it: food.
What stream is your friend fishing?

Hi Dale, - the river Wye in Derbyshire, - for the #16's it will be Grizzle cock fibres. Red Quill sounds good.

Hope you're well Jimmy. Kind of quiet without the babbling Belgian cop
