That is one beautifully tied fly-- great proportions, clean lines--- super.

Blue Quills are a great hatch -- they basically kick off the season up here and start to pop when the water temps hit 50 degrees (still a few weeks away for us).

Very nice and extremely well tied. Nice to see the more "traditional" pattern (I'm gonna burn for that one) being used.
I have a nice set of Catskills tied by Allan Podell that I swapped with him about 12 years ago or so, that fly is very similar in design it seems.

Pristine fly! Beautiful job of tying that one.

We get into the Blue Quill season in about 3-4 more weeks up here in the Poconos. Right now, it's dark nymphs and Little Black Stoneflies. The season hasn't officially opened but a lot of fish are being taken on private water with the combination of Black Pheasant Tail nymphs and Black Caddis; on #16-18 hooks.

Your dry flies are excellent!
