just for fun

because I like the pic

and while catskill dries have long been my favorites to tie, I've gravitated more toward harrop's flies. and for fishing my own variants of whatever.

Re: Fly tying contest

interesting that substitutions aren't permitted, but the recipe call for pheasant tail tail and the fly as pictured has what looks like is a deer hair tail.

I'll try to get some. as you may well know it is tough to get a nice shot of a rod. much easier to get shots of flies.

Re: Leonard Fairy Catskill 8' 3pc

that's truly lovely.

I recently finished a degere 1wt a sweet little small stream 6ft rod, that performed admirably. I'm' currently varnishing the wraps on a degere ice cream parlor hole special (6'8" 2wt). I'm excited to see how this one casts.

Re: Quill Gordon Variant

I'm also a fan of cdl tails and I like them a little long (like you tied it ).
nice work as usual.
