CJ
So good to see you back here. The classic traditional Catskill look you get on dries is great!

Thanks. Building any rods?

Nice to see your return. I am always pleased when you show your flies.

We oughtn't tie to please others. If we're happy, that is what it is all about.

The real intent is to have fun tying.

A little follow up on this. 

 

I have been in contact with the grandaughter of William Bradley, originator of the Bradley Special.  She found this post and contacted me, and we have been trading stuff through the mail.  Very exciting to hear from a family member of Mr Bradley, and to learn quite a bit more about him and the Beaverkill Trout Club he was treasurer of.  

 

Just wanted to let you guys know....you never know how far reaching it can be when you put a photo on the computer!  Glad I did.  CJ
