Re: Beverkill SBS

Great job with that Dave, your photography is as amazing as your tying ability. I love looking at SBS's, you always learn a little something at least! CJ Thanks CJ glad you enjoyed the pictures, however, I seriously doubt that I have much to teach you in the fly tying department.. :) /David S.

It is a gorgeous shade of hackle, and another very nice looking dry fly... :D

Yes, it's a beautiful shade indeed, I managed to find a cape at last :-)

Re: Spirit of Pittsford Mills

Thank you Fatman, very interesting to see a picture of an original fly. I can't quite make out if the tail is a hackle point or hackle barbs, I guess it's possible that Stephen Belcher II may have tied them both ways?

Re: Bill Tobin's Little People

The URLs for the pix are showing, but not the pix themselves. Is it because they need resizing? Photobucket has "improved" itself, and the resizer seems to have gone away--at least, I can't find it. Somebody--CJ?--pull my coat, and I'll fix 'em. --Bud Very interesting thread Bud. When selecting the...

Cochy Quill

I finally got hold of a Coch-y-Bonddu cape, it's an old Indian cape and not exactly top quality, on the plus side it gave me the opportunity to tie a pattern I've been aching to tie since I saw the picture of one in Mike Valla's " The Classic Dry Fly Box ". This is a pattern from Bergman's " Trout "...

Thanks wiFlyFisher glad you enjoyed it, perhaps my work can get at least one more fly tier interested in the Catskill-tradition. That would make quite happy :)

The only picture I have of one is black and white, which is out of the Leiser book. I have it in a .pdf file and I can't attach it from here at work I'll have to do it from home.
Please do, I would be most interested. /David S.

Some time before Christmas I was approached by an acquaintance I've made on Facebook who asked if I would be interested in presenting a favorite-fly on their web site. After checking out the site I thought why not, and set to work making a SBS for the Beaverkill (male). I quickly found out tying and...
