This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is the Quigley Victory Drake.
I saw this fly for the first time a little over a week ago during our trip on the Upper Columbia River. If you haven’t seen the post, be sure to read my story of dry fly fishing with Green Drake mayflies is BIG water!
Check out the front view of this fly and you’ll understand why it has a “V” in it’s name.
I don’t know the history of how Bob Quigley created or named the fly, but I liked it the moment my guide Rial tied it on my leader.
You’ll note the Quigley Victory Drake has a few similar materials and style of the Quigley Cripple and the Quigley Hackle Stacker.
When I get more time, I think I’ll have to tie a few of the Quigley Victory Drake for myself!
