The Quill Gordan has earned its right as a classic dry fly. In the world of so many mayfly patterns, this one stands out for its ability to catch trout. It perfectly imitates a mayfly at the beginning of its transition out of the water. The mayflies are figuring out how to fly and often attempt to dry off their wings at this time. Twitches and dead drifts make this fly deadly and should be a part of your mayfly quiver for its low profile and realistic silhouette.
