Quigley’s Green Drake Emerger fly tying video

In this fly tying video Barrett demonstrates how to tie one of our favorite Green Drake Emerger patterns. This “Quigley” style fly fishes in the surface film and works great during a Green Drake hatch. You can vary the size depending upon the size of your water’s Green Drakes. The Ostrich fibers in the pattern hanging and “breathing” as this fly dead drifts over picky fish seem to make the difference.–CD
