I too had his book. I was born south of Pittsburgh and got to see him a few times. I have lent a few books out to good friends and not got them back and his is one of them. Is it still in print? I believe he fished Dunbar creek also. He was a great inspiration for my fly fishing life. Also anyone remember William Tappley? Going back!!

Very fond memories of Chauncey and his brother in law, George Aiken. When I was in high school, I fished and tied flies with George quite a bit, and fished the Paradise with he, Chauncey, and Marion Lively (Chauncey's beloved wife). A couple of months after a May trip, imagine my surprise and delight to find Chauncey's fly tying article in the magazine featuring a story about our time together fishing over tan caddis and craneflies at the Paradise. Both Chauncey and George were old school gentlemen.

One of his flies that he featured in a PA angler article, was a mayfly pattern called a tri-point dun. It's a more realistic variation of the comparadun.
The deer hair is separated into 3 different segments. 2 parts are bunched separately on each side of the front of the hook - and represent the legs, and help float the fly.
The 3rd part sits on the top of the hook, and squeezed together into a sailboat wing shape. Then glued to hold it that way.
It's a very effective pattern - and has caught some fish for me, that have refused everything else that I tried

Not to pick nits, but I think the "Bill Tapply" you guys are remembering was actually named H.G. Tapply who wrote the Tap's Tips column for F&S. He was the father of William (Bill) Tapply who was first and foremost a fine mystery novelist and also wrote a number of fishing books and worked as an Editor at Large for some of the FF Magazines (Rod & Reel for one, IIRC..). H.G. has been dead for a long time. Bill passed away in 2009 of leukemia at 69. Way too soon..

Great pattern. Be sure to leave space between the quill wraps for the cream floss to show through.
