In Topic: Do you still use them? Which are your favorite wet flies

Another color that worked great for me was rusty ( Uni Thread 8/0 non waxed)  but purple and partridge and yellow and partridge where deadly  for a few good seasons.

In Topic: Different nymphs for starting season

Hi Charlie,

The tail is genuine Coq de Leon ( from Spain ): Flor de escoba sin penca mixed with Corzuno Medio. The Whiting version is a different thing, not comparable with  Coq de Leon

These flies sink fast, in fact are comparable with  Perdigon nymphs:

*Slim profile, 

*slick material used in body,

*tungsten beads 

*one or 2 turns of CDC which is not water resistant like dubbing or anything similar

Thanks Mvendon,  I will save the document :) very interesting.   Because I started filling my boxes and I found some hackles ( usually I tie dry flies with CDC mostly )  I tied a few Gordon Quill variations with hackle in front.

 Here it is:





One question, why is the reason to tie catskill flies without head  or almost nothing) Lot of space left free right behind the hook eye?
