Fly Tying: “Quillimodo” The Quill Body Yellow Humpy

View on YouTube
So I was going through my old video footage and I forgot all about this one! I meant to post this in the early fall but it slipped my mind so here is a little bonus tying video. Makes me miss my tying gear even more (hopefully in the new house and unpacked by late February!)

Here it is:
The Quill Body Humpy “Quillimodo”
Tail: moose body
Thread: UTC 70 yellow
Body: Stripped peacock quill and 2mm sheet foam
Wings: Bleached Elk Hair
Hackle: Furnace and Grizzly
UV Resin.

Great fly to take advantage of the look of a quill body fly with the buoyancy and visibility of the classic Humpy. I hope this helps all my tying friends get through the cold dark of January!

#FRIDAYFLYTYING: Foam Beetle by Allen Fly Fishing

#FRIDAYFLYTYING: This foam beetle is a great pattern not only for fishing streams and rivers, but also for stillwater applications as discussed by our friends at the @stillwater_fly_fishing app, specifically along wind-blown banks. It’s a very quick pattern to tie up, and it’s applicable in a range of sizes!

– Hook: W501/W501BL
– Foam
– Hackle for Legs
– Estaz Chenille
