I picked up a Rhode Island Red recently and I tried tying one of Art Flick's Red Quills.

Please don't attend I come 'on here' on this forum often ...or each time I come with a reply to 'one' of Your DRY flies overhere...as I want to hold it to 'sporadicly' saying hello's overhere !!!


I see a realy nice "RED QUILL"...ah as many many others who are flyfishig for brown trout...this is indeed (as my dearest enemy to my heart DALE brings over...a 'topper and fabulous' DRY fly)


Thanks for tying and posting this 'classic'

Nice! I haven't thought on tying the red quill.. mostly because of the lack RI feathers.
