The Ginger Quill belongs to a set of dry fly patterns
incorporating feather quill material for the body construction.
Over time, many variations have been popularized resulting in
several slightly different material listings and proportion
guidelines. Wings have been constructed from starling or
mallard duck wing quills. Body quills have been used from
stripped ginger hackle quills or stripped peacock eye herls.
Different interpretations of the color ginger results in many
variations based on local mayfly insect hues.
