I knew about the Classic Wet/Streamer forum and the Salmon fly forum but I had no idea you guys started a Classic dry forum. Good idea! Sorry it took me so long to stumble in here. I love tying and fishing Catskills. These are older pictures and you might have seen them elsewhere.  I will post up some more classic goodness in the future.

I really like those Adams you tied up.

 

One thing for sure is that you're consistent with your tying, they all look great!

Lovely work.  The Adams has to be a favorite around here.

Welcome to the forum! Take a seat, pour yourself a cup of coffee and have a doughnut (not the apple fritters...they're mine) and hold on for a wild ride!!!!! Sweet group of flies too!!!!!!


Happy Trails!

Thanks for the welcome. Time permitting I will dig out my stuff and post some more flies. I'm wondering just how you guys define a classic dry? I tie some interesting patterns that may not be considered "classic". I would love to share but I would hate to clutter the forum up with flies that you guys would deem not classics and not appropriate.

Welcome. The term classic isn't that clear here. Many fine tiers who enjoy seeing flies and getting to be friends. So have at it! The dry fly page can use more activity.

This place is deader than my sex life.  Spring really wasn't the ideal time for me to start posting. Fishing should get started here in Maine anytime in the next couple of weeks. I'm about done tying until winter. Right now I'm doing some black ghost marabou streamers and I know for a fact they don't qualify as classic dries. smile.png

We don't have a definition of what is or is not a "classic" but we know a fly that is tied in the spirit of the classics.

Arthur has really put a damper on my 4th of July weekend and find myself sitting here trying to organize the old pictures on my computer. Here are a couple of really old pics of one of my favorite dry fly patterns. Nelson's Caddis.

Those are beautifully tied. Proportions are so critical to get a good float. I think one of the reasons they fell by the wayside is that it takes  much practice to tie them correctly.

Filling the boxes. Spring in Maine is just 6 or 8 months away.  :)

You've been a busy guy. It's good you're taking advantage of the winter.
