    Do you tie your dry flies with real quill wings? I have recently answered questions about how to prepare wings for tying traditional patterns and was wondering if you use the old ways or never learned to match wings and apply them?

    Of course some patterns do not require quill wings and we are thankful for that, and yes I have used poly yarn for spent wings although quill and flank work well also.

    I've looked at a few patterns to sit down and try them, but I haven't yet.

    I have and still do. I love the one in your picture but a little dark to see the wing. OUTSTANDING fly though.
