We have a nice Fly Tying Riddle for you 🙂
Bellow is a gammarus fly tied for Poland and Slovak rivers. This fly works for big trout, grayling and barbles. The fly was tied with the legs made of a special natural material.
If somebody guess what material was used, will receive a very nice award from Trout Line Company:
- a bag of with that secret material,
- a Gammarus foil from Pro Sportfisher,
- a bottle of Troutline UV Resin,
- a bag of Maruto C46 WBL hooks
- 3bags with our special dubbing used for shrimps and gammarus flies
The guessing rules:
- one guess for each guy/girl
- the first correct one will win the award.
good luck guys 🙂
PS: If you know hot this fly is tied here is a short article with a step by step: Tying a gammarus nymph . The materials are not exactly the same but most important is the technique 🙂

It’s a peacock quill.
Hi Mikolaj, thanks for trying but not. Is not peacock quill. These legs are made of barbs. Just check the structure and shape, is conical and thin, one solid color. cheers 🙂
Hmmm. Looks pretty much like stripped quill to me. Maybe from an Ostrich or Pheasant tail?
It’s Coq De Leon 🙂
Looks like Emu to me.
