I don't know if I would do that Blueraider. Supposedly there is a group that wanders the streams looking for heretics like you. On discovery, their flies and equipment are confiscated and they are given a dunking until they renounce the practice. Seriously, I like quill bodied flies. They look good and do not soak up water. Their main shortcoming is the quill can be damaged by trout teeth. I cover my quills with superglue after the fly is tied. If using dyed quills, test it first to be sure the glue does not alter the color. Good luck, Silvercreek
