Thread: 'Ol McGinty

  1. #1

    Default 'Ol McGinty

    Found in a 1957 National Geographic. Those old magazines are full of ads for thing we made right here including shoes, watches, clothing and eveything else we used except maybe Volkswagons.

    Very cool Jack! Check out the vise and the fly rack ! The old pics are great to see when you can find them!

    I like the quill in the lacquer. It seems so simple and yet I doubt that anyone does that now.
    McGintys are my go-to fly for bluegill. Mine are a little more subdued than that one though

    I agree, that's a neat vise there. Makes the old Thompsons look downright space age!

    I'd love to see a step-by-step tutorial for tying that fly as it's shown there!
    Looks a bit better than my chenille McGinty.

    BTW- I ALWAYS keep a few McGinty flies in my 'gill assortment. I've seen a few days that it was the only choice that would take fish.

    I took my first fly-caught trout on a McGinty, dry. I was twelve and so excited that to bring the fish to hand I simply walked backwards in the cow pasture, ignoring the steps into fresh cow patties ... a messy beginning.
    Best regards,
