Default Old School

Have you got a somewhat forgotten classic hiding out in the corner of your fly box ?
What do you still use that we don't hear much about ? I still fish the Hornberg. What's your old school secret weapon ?

Thumbs up Re: Old School

Really cool idea for discussion, I'm looking forward to see where this goes. The Lime Trude is one of my favorites. They seem to be irresistible on PA's freestone streams holding wild trout. +1 on Royal Coachman/Wulf and Mickey Finn. Gotta have my Adams as well, they're nearly 100 years old.

The Hornberg is a go-to fly for me and I caught my largest fish so far this season on a black ghost

Boz, I know what you mean about being old school (ancient). I had to start using a chest pack because I couldn't find my fishing vest. I was usually already wearing the vest. I just forgot I had put it on.
Good call on the Mickey Finn, too. Lots of great flies brought out of hiding already guys, keep 'em coming !

Colonel Bates streamer & Picket Pin wet fly for me!

Some of the flies you folks have listed are wonderful old school classics, but still widely popular so for me, they're flies I might use frequently. Some are even still being listed in catalogs. I also agree with the Brooks Blonde's, particularly some of the lesser known in the series, like the Integration, Irish & Argentine. Gerbubble Bugs too, especially the original hard body versions.

Superb topic!

Royal Coachman, when I was 13 and started fly fishing occasionally with my dad this was all we ever put on. We had no idea about hatches, midges, nymphs WF , DT, sealed drags, $50 nippers. We tied some 6lb mono on the end of a floating line and went and threw Royal Coachman and seemed to do ok.
