Tom,

Have you fished these Clyde style pattern much? This pattern looks like it would work well in the Catskills. Something different to try, when fish are being picky.

Lovely wee fly. I found John Reid's book, Clyde Style Flies, very helpful. I actually won a tying contest on one of the British forums for Clyde style flies. I've used them with some success when the fish are being picky. Gives them something different to look at.

A simple old school pattern that still crushes those wily fish.
Nice!

Wow, man. A fish could see whatever it wanted to see staring at that thing. I guess I know what rabbit hole I'm going down tonight. [search] clyde style flies
