Hi folks, I know in the older days of the forum the fly database was quite well used and bookmarks of patterns was common.

I would love to hear some stories of flies people copied and had great success with and also flies you've tweaked to suit a hatch or scenario.

 

A few I've had joy with came via Soft Hackle and Old Hat. The leviathan and triple green caddis are two that spring to mind

Ah, but the one, one is a warrior and he will bring the others back. "No man ever steps in the same river twice"   Heraclitus, 5 B.C

I've tried a few flies from the "Flies of the month" threads ... but I don't think I've ever done one directly from the database.
