Hi Big Cliff,

That Fly Is a Catskill Style Fly...Reuben Cross is accredited for establishing the method of leaving a 16th inch bare neck behind the head of the fly....It was Made Popular By some other Famous Tying Family's like The Dette Family and the Darbee's Both of Roscoe, NY...George Harvey Tied that Fly also I believe, But he didn't Originate it...

It is nice to be aboard here Big Cliff...I do Trout and Bass Flies I hope you don't mind if I don't post a few...I didn't do anything wrong did I??

Nice Talking to you
