    Nice tie Slinger,

    For not tying you aren't showing any cramps there. Funny I was just seeing Catskill style flies discussed on a thread here somewhere

    I hear ya,

    Some of these things will one day be like seeing a Model T on the road. I do fear that tying the traditional and classic dry fly is fast becoming a lost art. I tie them all, from the Female Beverkill to the Pink Lady. You will seldom find a copy of the old Iron Blue Dunn in a modern fly box and for sure Hendrickson isn't found in the threads often either. Keep tying them and I wish you a great season fishing them,

    Have no fear gentleman Catskill Dries are the mainstay of my dry box. I would like to see the Female Beverkill too, this thread reminds me that I have to get to work on my trout boxes!


    Edit: I found a pic in one of Ard's thread.

    That's always been one of the prettier dry flies IMO. You made it look even better with the smaller hackle over the body. I like that a lot. Wish we had them in the west.
