Steel Blue Quill

Evening...When I was away fishing last autumn in Idsjöströmmen I put together a spider pattern to match some thoughts gathered during my fishing. I have a favoutite autumn dry pattern for the graylings, "The Grayling Steel Blue" I came to the conclusion that I wanted a similar fly but a fly that was in the surface instead of on the surface. So I made a Spider and took the colours from The Grayling Steel Blue, the fly worked really well.

One of the backsides with tying quill flies is to obtain quills. Making your own can take some time, when youré tying fishingflies you dont want to mess with making your own quills. my friend Leon Links introduced me to Polish Quills, prestripped quills in different colours. The Quality and the colours are amazing, so from now on no more stripping quills, atleast for my fishingflies...
