- Today is Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 at 6:00 a.m. Yesterday was a very cloudy, overcast day with a touch of sun at various times. It also stayed quite cool. Another cloudy day is forecast for today. Recent rains have filled the reservoirs. This is good for summer tailwater fishing. We do have the chance of showers this afternoon. Presently most rivers are fishable. Hatches have been better on the tailwaters in light of the stable releases meaning stable flows. Hatches remain about the same with Sulphurs, an important hatch. Cloudy weather usually brings more olives. There are also some Caddis and Isonychias.
FOUND-BOX OF FLIES ON WEST BRANCH-last week. If it could be yours, please contact us & we will connect you with the person who was kind enough to try to find the owner.
FLIES-Again this year we will have some new patterns that will cause both you and the fish to take notice. Everyone at Catskill Flies are fly tyers so we are in a good position to help you select materials for your personal flies. We also offer a custom fly tying service.
RODS-We are proud to have Scott Rods on board. These premium rods are made in the USA and are a joy to both cast and fish.

FLY OF THE WEEK
This is the fifteenth fly of the 2015 fishing season. This is our Isonychia no-hackle Cripple.
The Isonychia is a sporadic emerger all summer long and trout have a fondness for this bug. This no-hackle pattern works very well with selective trout and slow water.
- Hook- #12 tmc 2312 or Wapsi NH-7
- body-claret turkey biot
-thorax- Grayish claret fur
- Wing-dun deer slanted forward
All species specific flies are tied in the shop. This assures accurate color and silhouette. Let us assure you that we actually tie our own flies and are busy doing it 12 months a year, 7 days a week. We are an anomoly-we still do it the old fashioned way to make sure you get the best possible fly for your money and one that actually works. We are fly tyers!
