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.

Expert Tip:

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.
