Red Quill


Hook: TMC 100BL #12
Tail: Medium Dun hackle fibres
Body: Quills from 2 red game neck hackles
Wing: Lemon Wood Duck flank-feather
Hackle: 2 Medium Dun
Thread: Danville 6/0 olive

Have been trying to gauge the proportions on this classic 1933 Art Flick pattern, most of mine seem to end up with too much hackle. Still not quite sure, but I think this is closer to what I’d like to achieve.
