feather wings work better for still or calm pocket water , ride a bit lower and better sillouhette too .

Hernyville, now there a fly thats been in the back of my box for a long time. I have done very well with that fly before. Thanks for the reminder!


The Henryville gets no respect anymore. I usually start off with a Henryville during caddis hatches, then move on to other caddis imitations if the Henryville doesn't produce, which isn't very often.

I hate tying them though. Spent part of the day yesterday updating my selection of 16s and 18s in various colors. Hopefully I won't have to tie any for the next 2 or 3 decades.

Hey festus,

By no means do I expect you to do it, but I'd love to see a henryville tutorial if you get the time this spring. I have never tied one.

If you make the jam, I'll give you a brew or two for it.

Jay, neither have I, at least not successfully. That's one of the flies I'll gladly buy in a shop, especially the small ones. I've tied some with different wings (CDC, poly, deer hair) but they don't seem to work as well as the original quill wings. Quill wings are my nemesis

A henryville is like the adams of caddis flies - I don't think it's really meant to imitate anything specifically, but is a good all around pattern.
I hate working with quill wings also, and quite tying with them a long time ago. There is so good synthetic materiel out there that's alot easier to work with.

Okay. I'll put up a tutorial somewhere along the line. Might get to it this week. If not this week, next week.

Don't wear Ol' Festus out!

Thanks for all the great info, flies, photos and especially your tutorials. I know you put a lot of time in it for our benefit, and I'm sure we all appreciate it.

Yes. It's much appreciated. If you don't get around to it, we all understand.

Not a problem at all. I enjoy it. Gives me a much needed break from reality I'll definitely get a tutorial up on the subject. And I think that while I'm doing the mallard wings on the Henryville, I can also demonstrate a few real simple techniques that will make wet fly wings easier for everyone. Two birds with one stone.

Been thinking about the Jam. Can't commit just yet.

No can do. The POWA Spring Conference in Wellsboro is set for that weekend and I have a few gobblers and trout promised out. I thought I had something brewing for that weekend but wasn't sure. Gettin' old stinks.

I'll show you how to tie a Henryville if I see you Jay, I like to tie them and catskill dries when I'm in the groove.

Cool Festus I look forward to another one of your tuts.

Mike Schmidt (http://www.anglerschoiceflies.com/) can tie wets like no other. He is actually a friend of Mike Heck's I met him in Somerset this year.

I love the challenge of tying what other prefer not to. I can do a pretty decent traditional wet fly.
