Re: Big, ugly palmer wets

Great looking flies. I tie large #8 hooks palmered wets and fish them in small streams. Both wild browns and brookies take them with gusto.

What feather are you using for the haggle? That’s a nice slate gray shade(Reminiscent of Waterhen) with black tips.....
That is California Quail sir....given to me by a gentleman for whom the fly is named.
