I targeted a fish this weekend that would not take the female emerger. I saw a few males take to the skies, so I switched to a larger red quill, and the fish immediately took it.

I have no idea if it mattered, and maybe it was just blind luck... but it convinced me enough to try the quill when the emerger failed that day, and I took a few more fish on it.

Next time you forget to soak your quills,borrow some of your wifes hair conditioner and rub the quills with it ,softens them up so you can tie with them

A few very good fisherman have told me a thorax red quill with the hackle trimmed off the bottom is the best hendrickson pattern one can fish!

jrc,

That's what I've been using. I agree. It looks really good. I love the stuff.

It's got good colors for both the light and dark hendrickson.

Jay,
Don't fear the dries. Red quill and Hendrickson describe the same fly and are not difficult to tie, size twelve , usually, cut the bottom flush to imitate the spinner.

Drunella are called (by anglers) BWOs. The are in the same "family" (Ephemerellidae) as the hendricksons. The common names of insects in the Ephemerellidae family are:

Hendricksons, Sulphurs, PMDs, & BWOs

Look in the right margin of the Troutnut page on the link.

Anybody else use moose mane instead of actual quills a lot easier to work with.

I use moose mane for my Quill Gordons sometimes. For Red Quills, I long ago gave up on using brown rooster quills. I bought a few ounces of turkey flats from Feather-Craft, and bleach the fibers off then dye them reddish brown. They are 10 times tougher then rooster quills. I can do up a lifetime supply in about 30 minutes. They are a little thicker then rooster quills and make a real nice tapered body with better segmentation.

after watching the number of cripples float by fro this hatch, for the last two years I have tied and almost all I have used used is a Hendrickson cripple pattern

size 14 dry fly hook

hedrickson turkey biot (mahagony for the red quill)

brown antron or zelon shuck with some lemon wood duck tails mixed in ( can tie with or with out the tails)

CDC wing tilted forward and trimmed same height as hackles

medium dun hackle clipped in the bottom even with the hook

Hondo, Thats the best pattern posted here so far...After spending the last few days on the Upper Delware and catching some nice fish I would have to say cripples are the way to go! Some one mentioned sizes 12', where in the heck do you see size 12's?

Size 14 adams parachute works fine for me on Penns. Also works for BWO's in the right size.
