Fly Tying: Wrapping Ostrich Herl (Take A Look First)

Ostrich Quills Are Flat and Not Even

“Look at the ostrich quill before tying in. The fibers may not be even on both sides. Because the quill shaft is flat, you can tie it in so that the longer fibers will stick out from the hook shank when you begin to wrap it. Also, the fibers are curved and will bend forward or backward. Determine how you want the fibers before you tie the quill to the shank.” Wotton

Fly Tying: Hex Nymph by John Palacios

Hex Nymph by John Palacios

LEROY FLYTYING & SUPPLY

This pattern shows the use of ostrich herl. I have promoted this material before and think it is a great material to suggest life. Here it is used for the tail and gills of the abdomen of a Hex nymph.
