      Great lookin tye. I need to learn to make mine fatter like that. The last cahills I tyed looked good except they looked like they"d been on a hunger strike for a while. I don't know I always look back at my flys and think I wished I'd did this different or something like I wished I'd made the tails shorter or longer. That fly will catch fish, good job dude.

            Really nice looking Cahill Redtop. I still have not taught myself to tie one of those yet.

            What Size hook is that tied on ?
            Nothing is impossible the impossible just takes a little longer. So take your time and enjoy the experience.

                That looks great. I have just got to learn more about fishing dries. About all I have fished so far are nymphs, but I love catching bass on top, so that seems like the next step for me in fly fishing.

                P.S. Every time I see that brisket you have as an avatar, Redtop, I drool. That's some good looking meat right there.

                  Actually Catskill style flies are tied with a slim body. Look at the Quill Gordon or a red quill. They are usually tyed with a heavy hackle meaning two hackles. Also the tails are long and slim. Just sayin. Here are some very well tyed Catskill flies.http://www.classictrout.com or http://www.danica.com
