Re: The "Cinberg"

I do not wish to give the name of the stream, but it's located in eastern CT. I fish a 5' 9" 3wt glass rod. When possible I'll fish from the bank, the bottom has a lot of silt. When walking in the stream I'll wait the necessary time it takes for the water to clear. I fish the fly downstream, making ...

The Cinberg is becoming a favorite of mine. I have got to try it on the Farmington.

Re: Conover

I've tried to duplicate two Catskill flies, the Cinberg, and Neversink Skater. Both of these flies I did my best to stay in line with tradition. And I'm happy to say both flies were taken readily by my friendly brook trout. This is my attempt to tie the Conover. Not the right hackle, I'm working on ...

Re: Hewitt's Neversink Skater

bearbutt that's great.

On a couple of my skaters I used a little Sally Hansen to help stiffen the hackle. It was OK but I think real stiff natural hackle would be best.

I would also say that many of my presentations were very much like the last photo and they drew strikes.

Re: Hewitt's Neversink Skater

bearbutt Thanks for the information. I just started taking an interest in Hewett's flies. I did not realize so many capes were needed to get a few good hackles. I am looking forward to your next installment. By the way I've been told that Ed Shenk also tied a skater, do you have knowledge of it? Brk...
