No title – Mr.

Two Feather Fly by Harry Darbee. I believe this was described by Al Mclane in an article in Field & Stream. He dubbed the fly the ‘Hatchmatcher’. The idea behind Mr. Darbee’s creation was to make it easier for a large fly to float by using a much smaller hook. One feather used for tail, body and wing while one other feather is wound for the hackle. The fly lands perfectly, sits on the water just like a mayfly and it’s more durable then it looks.
