Two of the size 20s on the right is the Light Cahill and the left is a parachute BWO.

At some point yesterday I sat down and started cranking out dry flies.  I had been tying them before but only in spurts.  Yesterday though I got on a roll, and was unstoppable.  I sat down and knocked out a good thirty plus dry flies.  I was tying mainly BWO's and Light Cahills, and the master plan is for me show how to tie a Light Cahill in a future post.  I was really thrilled with my progress on this fly box yesterday so I needed to share.

It might not look like much but this box was as barren as a desert when I stared yesterday.  

As I said I will be highlighting the Light Cahill pattern in an upcoming post.  I hope everyone in the northeast enjoyed the wonderful weather yesterday.  It was unseasonably warm yesterday and along with tying lots of flies I took a rod out and had a little casting practice in the back yard.  Yesterday was a good day, and there are more to come as long as the weather continues to show signs of spring.



  1. That looks like a pretty fine assortment! My personal favorite hatch is the BWO...I love to watch fish rise for one!

  2. If you get bored, feel free to send some out my way. Also, call me if you come down toward home anytime soon. My flyrod needs a workout, but I don't know if I'll be able to get up north this spring.
