About the Catskill Trout Fly
The Catskill is seen as both a dry fly and as a wet fly. At certain times of the year, usually more into the summer, it is a very good fish catcher.
Gary LaFontaine called the classic Catskill and other similar patterns the tiptoe flies, because when they are properly tied, only the hackles and the tail touch the water.
