Hello everyone. I tied this up up this morning and listening to the rain hitting on my roof. I tied it in the catskill tradition. Hook size is 12 the abdomen is a Rhode Island red quill and the thorax is dun hackle. I also used teal duck for the wings. I like the woody but the teal looks much better to me. Thanks for looking.

 

Best Regards, Ken

It looks good the way you tied it Ken. Not Art Flick's red quill, but well tied. Most trout will eat a red quill.

 

Good tying!
