Casters Fly Shop is holding a fun little fly tying contest on Facebook and the entries are required to be Traditional Catskill Dry Flies. There are some beautiful flies being posted, so I thought I would post some of the flies that have been submitted so far. Enjoy!

Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions shows us how to tie a Wood Duck Scud. This is definitely an interesting pattern.
Brian Wise’s second video in the Andreas Andersson Series…the Aino. Andreas’s technique of stacking light weight materials on the back and front of the hook shank makes for a super light, yet thick profiled fly.
Check out Brian’s website at Fly Fishing the Ozarks.

Charlie had this to say today on his Facebook page. “So my Arkansas River streamer plan turned out ok, but the caddis had other ideas…spent all afternoon throwing single Screaming Banshees to rising fish and KILLED it. Twitching, skittering, dead drift, sunk…the Banshee did it all today. What a great fly!
So I thought it would be appropriate to post the video from In The Riffle which shows you how to tie the Screaming Banshee.
