P-Quad Wet Fly

The P-Quad is a creation from fly angler and tyer Mark Olinger and is the genesis of a series of wet flies. The fly is one of Mark's best-producing fly patterns, in particular for Manitoba's Tokaryk Lake.

P-Quad was named so for the elements in the fly, pheasant, peacock, pintail, and partridge. The fly does well fished in lakes using a sinking line to get the fly down to a feeding level, but should also do well swung like a standard wet fly in flowing waters.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
