Default Re: A Thread for the Dry Fly Purist;

The Beaverkill is pretty old, like 1990 old. You can see the lacquer crystalized on the head. I believe the other 2 are from the late 1990's when I used a lot of them. The Blue Quill was probably the best all around dry fly I used between 1990 and 2004. They match a bunch of May Flies.

I am going to be photographing a collection of dries one of these days. Most are fairly good ties and I'll try to do a good job on the pictures. When I have them I'll add them into this thread. I have a few more of these old ones though
