Re: Classic vs Modern
I'm like Jimmie and many others on this forum that enjoy tying a lot of different styles of flies including many modern ones---- but there's something about well tied classics that really is appealing-- I really enjoy seeing well tied patterns like
Carrie Steven's streamers
well proportioned classic Catskill Dries
"ye olde skoole" soft hackles and wets (like Scottish loch flies)
Wilky, keep an eye out for the stuff that Ard and Pocono tie up, along with all those beautiful creations our overseas tyers like Tob1, Jbbfly, Cicvara and Chrisinselwynnz come up with.
