Examination of the Trout color plate painting reveals a tail-tag as a short orange stub of floss topping the quill section tail. J. Edson Leonard, author of the book, Flies, correctly designates this component application, usually of floss or wool, as a tail-tag. A tag is always at the end of the body, underneath the tail, and a tip is at the end of the body, encircling (in front of) the tail.
