Looks good Jimmy! What's the body? Photo isn't quite clear enough to make it out.

It has a Catskill style of sorts, at least through the eyes of a Rocky Mountain trout stream dry fly fisher like me. Hope your friend enjoys hours of great dry fly fishing. When does the season start?

Hi Dale, it has a quill body,i think my camera angle could have been better. Where he fishes most is on a private club water,and i think it opens  late March.

Teddy and I visited once and he said a red quill will hook trout anywhere. It's a pattern I love. Mine are different than this though.
Wish your friend good fishing! He will be ready with your flies

Nice tie JImmy,

 

Are the wings back to back? Could you or others post a link to a step by step/video of this kind of wings?

 

Cheers,

 

Kent

Kent
My book Mayflies: Tying, on kindle, explains different upright wing techniques that would help. The book is $3.99.

Good luck!
Dale

How little are these?  I ask because i tied some flies for a friend who fishes the Test and he couldn't get "small" flies.  To him small was a #16 emerger, which to me are nowhere near the size that I think are small.  The hackle looks fine.  Your fly has the hackle spread over a much wider area than a Catskill type and the tails are different as well.
