How to Strip Peacock Quills

Quill Body Frenchie

The Frenchie is a competition fly popularized in France.  Tying is described in Mrogan Lyle’s book Simple Flies.  My buddies and I are going to fish the Driftless Area in Wisconsin, the home of the Pink Squirrel, and I tied these to try.  The Frenchie has a pink hot spot also.
