Kinds of Flies
Flies are known as winged flies, hackles and palmers. The winged flies have one or two pairs of wings, a hackle to represent legs, a body and usually a tail. The hackle has a body and sometimes a tail, and always a hackle tied at the shoulder, but no wings. A palmer has a body with a hackle set in spirally the length of the body. It is made in imitation of a caterpillar. Many anglers call both of these latter "hackles."
