Got Wet Fly Fever
The flies are Dr. Burke, Pebble Beach, Cassin, Abbey, Ferguson, Fish Hawk, Catskill, Pink Lady, and finally a couple Tomah Joes. There are so many patterns, it's hard to pick ones to tie. I'm trying to find a mix of wing materials - some bright quill, some mottled turkey, some duck flank, and a mix of body styles - palmered hackle, ribbed floss, and herl. I've wanted to tie up a set of flies like this for a LONG time.
Maybe the other box will be filled with some of the classic UK wet flies. We'll see.
