Adams

From Halford's early dries to the Catskill dry and everything else that floats on the surface.

Nice, Nik!

So, Nik, are you trying to convince all your mates over there that the Catskill Flies are what they should be tying? :P

Have they heard of the Catskill flies?

I think me, Janne "the Viking" and some other guys has made Catskill flies quite popular to tie and talk about... Your book has been with me on a couple of events by now :D so the word are and will continue to be spread..

Rather than starting a new topic, I'll just continue with an existing one that matches the story.

Tied a Catskill style Adams yesterday evening after dinner.
I used a vintage Mustad 94842 size 12 hook. The hook shank is maybe slightly on the shorter side compared to the Mustad 94840 but I really like the up eye of the 94842.
Hackle tips from a vintage Harry Darbee grizzly hen set for the wings, Hebert Miner Cree cape, Veevus 16/0 gray thread and (vintage) Upstream medium gray superfine dubbing.
