Wing
Drake Mallard Flank Feathers divided and splayed. Dyed slightly darker

The Gray Fox is one of three classic flies that I have had days to remember on the water. Just wanted to share one of the different varieties I tie it in. The fan wing. It actually is the same mallard you would normally use for the classic wing. But, I try to pick feathers that splay out. Instead of upright like the original. Otherwise this fly is tied with the normal recipe.
