    For brookies up in VT, sometimes. Down here, the only classic pattern I use is a big White Wulff at dark.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Re: Classic Trout flies

    Good Morning, I only tie classic Catskills flies. I use Art Flicks book,Harry Darbee book and, Sheiberts book from when he was 19 years old. Some times I may change the body color but basically they are all catskill type flies. I tie a lot of caddis flies and have caught a ton of trout on them. The most popular one that I use is an olive/gray body in a size 16 with a dark fun hackle and deer hair wing. Bill the mailman

    I use them all the time but someone stopped by the other day and cleaned me out.

    I like the deer hair wing idea because it floats like a cork. I've been tying a lot of patterns subbing in deer hair where I can for a wing. It takes the floatant well, dries quick, and is durable.

    Re: Classic Trout flies

    I still tie and fish Catskill style dries, especially fo the heavier Spring mayfly hatches in faster moving water. I also tie and fish the Vince Marinaro thorax mayflies for difficult trout and would not be on the stream without a full complement of Len Wright's fluttering Caddis.

    Re: Classic Trout flies

    For faster/broken water, I still like using a Catskills style dry. Just not in the upper D's many long, slow pools.

    Re: Classic Trout flies

    I use a lot of the generalized patterns such as Cinbergs, March Brown Variants, Atherton Number Fives, and the Dorato Hare's Ear. Mostly on broken water as Rusty pointed out, but I'll also break out a scraggly Cinberg or a small Dorato on smooth water. The Catskill Fly Tyers Guild is a good organization that promotes the style.

    Re: Classic Trout flies

    I always appreciate reading names of patterns I've never heard of which lead me to an internet search to check them out. Funny how it almost inevitably leads to a video with Grobert and a spool of olive 6/0 Danville.
