    I rarely fish them, more of a novelty, although, when I have tied one of them on I have caught trout...the pattern is a trout fly, a Ray Bergman pattern, he is a Jersey boy too, I bet it would catch a salmon though.

    Re: The Irish Turkey

    Bergman's book "Trout" is the shit. My uncle gave me a super old copy when I was like 12 and living in Minnesota. I revisited it this summer, and found it super cool that he was largely writing about the catskill waters that I fish nowadays..

    That shows my historical knowledge of flies. Lol!I looked at it quickly
    Before posting. I see now that’ it’s a wet fly. Very nicely tied!
    I haven’t tied in a while. I haven’t even set up my desk since
    We’ve moved to the farm, just been too busy. Since our church cancelled
    Their youth group on Friday nights , I think I’m going to set up my tying
    Area an do “ Friday night Fly tying “ with my kids, order pizza and make
    It fun.

    What is that, and the stuff behind the fly is white, I did use some adjustments after the picture was taken to make the fly more visible, maybe you could photograph them for me.. might come out a lot better.

    Thanks. Fish yes ( spin fish , for now), but do not tie yet. Plan on doing a lot more of both this
    Year. The Susquehanna river is across the road from the farm and the West Branch is about 15 minutes away.
