Re: My second shot at a Catskill dry

haha :oops: I understood you the first time Allan, for some dumb reason I said Hackle instead of Wings. Must be a case of dyslexia and tiredness, sorry, but thanks for pointing it out. A dubbed head!!! Sounds worse than using head cement :shock:

Re: My second shot at a Catskill dry

Re: My second shot at a Catskill dry

Well spotted on the hook front, are you also entering the comp.?

I've had another go at it and tried using two feathers. Far from perfect at least the wings and tail ...

This is my first attempt and I'd love to get some help and advise, especially regarding proportions, d...

Re: Palmered Lite Cahill

Heya Frank,

Good to see you posting here my friend. Your flies are exquisite as always :D
Frank was one of my main inspirations to have a go at tying my first Catskill Dry, I think I mentioned this forum to him when I discovered it.

Keep those doozies coming mate!

Karsten ;)
