Each type has it's place, in defence of the catskill style they are better in fast water, compara duns and parachutes work better in slower water, I carry all of them.

I think the pic in the first post was more representative of what trout see: A fuzzy blur, with some vague shapes and spots.
Just kidding.

About Catskill flies. I still love them and use them. There are times they work better than other flies, and they sure look nice when tied by someone who's good. Someone other than me. Mine look scraggly. A nicely tied Light Cahill or Quill Gordon is a thing of beauty.

I'm guessing that Sandfly is refering to married duck quill slips used on classic catskill dry (and wet) flies. They look pretty when tied, but they are durable at all.
