The Story

The Quill Gordon is one of the earliest eastern mayfly hatches in the spring. The flies hatch on the bottom and rise as fully formed adults, working on the surface to dry their wings and fly. The Quill Gordon dry fly has not changed since originated by Theodore Gordon in the Catskills. Skittering the dry fly a bit can improve production as the mayfly often makes multiple attempts to fly before it finally breaks free. The Gordon dry fly is a true classic. Color, Natural.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from “ Love The Gordon’s” The Catskills in the spring and fall is the place for me. The Quill Gordon is my favorite fly, by far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic But Wing Color A Bit Too Yellow This is a classic fly, no question about it. Spring go to for sure. Either it's me or the company has started using a "more yellow" wing for this fly. It seems that it used to be more subtle yellow and a more classic Catskill-style look. It's still a great fly but maybe I stand corrected on the wing color. Either way, it's a "winner"
