Blue Quill

Post by PortMurrayAng » Fri Mar 06, 2020 10:48 am

Saw a few BIG blue quill flying around among the stone flies yesterday afternoon on the musky. The fish were still keen on the LBS. I lost one after it threw the fly, only to catch it on the next cast in the same spot. No rising fish yet, but great afternoon to be out.

Nice. I saw some LBS yesterday as well and like you, no risers. What size were the BQs? 10? 8?
God have Mercy on the man who doubts what he's sure of.

Yes, big. I am not great at identifying sizes, or flies really, but I'm tying some up now 14 - 12. Sunday looks warm so maybe they'll start looking up.
