I tied this quill body dry yesterday.
Should I trim the hackle flat at the bottom or should I leave it as is?
Any help appreciated.
Thanks.
That’s really nice. I only trim the hackle on a dry fly if the fish are refusing it and it’s a fair imitation of what I think they are eating… in the hope that it looks more like a cripple / emerger or drowned fly. Hope that makes sense.

Super, thanks.
I'll fish it as it is to start with and will trim it if needed then.

Tied up some of these, Grillos Hippie Stomper. Body is peacock dubbing with a section of red silk à la royal wulff. Floats no matter what due to the foam and the trout love it. I tie it on terrestrial hooks from size 12 to 18. Anyway, took this to the water on Sunday and caught this along with eleven others.
