About the Red Quill Trout Fly
This particular Red Quill, created by Art Flick in 1933, is used to suggest the male dun mayfly ephemerella subvaria. Following the Quill Gordon in season, this pattern fishes well as a dry fly fishing gets into full swing and continues to serve at other times as a good search pattern.
It differs from the Hendricksons in the hackle feather stem used for the body.
