About the Two Feather Fly Trout Fly
The Two Feather Mayfly with it's amazing silhouette foot print; imitates a variety of mayflies when daintily stood on the water; it was created for gin clear and glass-like water.
Proven to bring fish to the net equally successfully on Catskill waters and the Chalk streams of England.
In a conversation with A J McClane, Harry Darbee
said he developed this style of fly because, It all began when late Terrell Moore asked me to make him a dry pattern that weighed no more than a natural mayfly."
His (Darbees') "unique method of fly tying required only a single feather for body, wings and tail." After manipulating the fibres of that feather to tie in those parts, "Darbee selects a feather for hackle and ties it in."
