Default Classic vs Modern

whats everyone favorite type of flies to tie the modern ones or the old classics . for me i like to tie the old classic scots and english flies i get the inpression from alot of youtube tying instucion videos are modern flies not the old classic flies i hate the thought of them being lost and forgoten and lost even though times nd materials have advaced significantly over the years i still think theres a place for the classic flys .
what do you prefer to tie and do you tie the classic flies

Vince I Like classical patterns and enjoy redescovering old patterns that are seldom fished or only found in old pattern books

Likewise. I've become a traditionalist over the years so I believe in perpetuating the original pattern. That and respect for whomever developed the fly.
That said I don't hesitate to buy and tie with new materials. In fact I like many of the newer type flies.

Vince: Ard is another member that really likes the classic patterns and he is a master at tying those beautiful salmon flies. He hasn't been posting lately, I'm thinking he is spending time out at his cabin.

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

Bergman's wets
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.

I like both . I tie many classic flies. Alot of them may never see the water. I just like tying them. I tied a fly the other night called a tricolor, that has been around for at least a hundred years. There are a lot of people tying classic Atlantic Salmon flies, so I doubt they will be lost. There was just a thread about Bergman's feather wing flies. In the past several years there have been several articles in Fly Tyer covering Bergman's wet flies. It will be a long time before the classics are lost as long as people value the traditions of the art. Bergman's Colonel Fuller

Thanks guys. Here is the fly I mentioned called the Tricolor. It's a classic Dee fly that has been around for at least a hundred years.
