moose quill & stonefly

Ha! Moose quill? Hells yeah,  think I feel like stripping quills tonight? Hells no!

Tail: moose mane
Body: same 'quills' wrapped forward w/CCG
Wing: natural CDC tied in at tip, then make a small loop and tie again
     Ginger hackle.

Body: moose & CCG
Wing: blk foam (body length or longer)
Ginger hackle.
  * keep the body very slender and the foam wing long. Fish right up against the mossy rocks.


  1. Nice use of moose mane might try it when I get hold of it. Keep on tying!
    Kind Regards,
    Mats Olsson

  2. The trick is the thin coat of thin CCG. The stuff really makes the mane 3-D. I bet elk would work just as well. Thanks, Nate
