How to tie Mallard slip wings dry fly

Over the past few days I have been tying up an order of several dozen traditional dry’s with mallard slip wings. I have found this extremely therapeutic , almost Zen like! But tying slip wings can prove to be challenging for the new beginner, heres is a tutorial with a Light Cahill variant that should make it easier to master.

  • Hook: Mustad R30 # 12
  • Tying thread: Sheer 14/0 Brown
  • Wings: Grey mallard wing quills
  • Tail: Coq de Leon
  • Body: Moose mane hair, one black two dyed Cahill pink
  • Hackle: Medium dun cock hackle
