Thanks,

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

Flags,

You asked, 'What are DST Quills'? Well, they are not turkey biots or turkey anything. I should know since I developed them. I'll not tell you what they are but I'd be more than willing to send you some samples. Oh, here's a photo of an Olive tied with DST Quill body.


and a Red Quill


and an extended body Potamantus


Oh, I just looked at the fly you referred to. I believe it's a fly that I tyed and Hans photo'd for his site.

Ok. What does DST stand for then? If not what Allan (Falsifly) stated?
