The fanwings are probably some of the oldest styles of patterns designed to imitate the adult stage of the Mayfly life cycle. Composed of a simple raffia body and a set of feather wings, these flies have withstood the ravages of time and modernity as great catchers of fish. Do not be put off by their ungainly shape as fish certainly seem to approve of them.
