Dark Red Quill
The Dark Red Quill Perfect Fly imitations can be an important phase for anglers to imitate
especially if you want to fish a dry fly instead of an emerger. As I mentioned before, these
duns generally leave the water fairly quickly. The trout seem to be aware of that and
many of them are eaten prior to emerging into a full grown dun.
You want to fish the edges of the fast water or seams of current and pocket water using
an upstream, or up and across approach. Leaders eight to ten feet long equipped with
two-foot long 4X or 5X tippets should work fine.
There are occasions you may find these mayflies in smooth water although they are far
more prone to be found in the pocket water of the smaller streams. If you do, you may
want to use a downstream or down and across presentation. Make sure you make a
longer cast because these mayflies often hatch in very shallow water. They are facing in
your direction when you cast downstream, so make sure you don't spook the trout.
