Les first tied this fly in 1980. This is the Catskill style tie of his NOTE: Les first tied this fly in 1980. This is the Catskill style tie of his youth. Some things are better never changed. We've had good luck with this pattern wherever we have used them. Don't be afraid to give this fly an occasional twitch when you see fish feeding during the spinner fall.
