I wanted to post a fly by Elsie Darbee. This is an old Catskill dry fly called the Cream Variant. I’ll post more information about Elsie and her husband Harry. Both are legendary Catskill fly tyers. For now, here is a fly tied by Elsie.
Hook: Mustad R48 or Tiemco 921, size 12.
Tail: Cream hackle barbs.
Body: Cream hackle stem.
Hackle: Cream tied on as a collar.
