A real dry fly. It almost brings a tear to my eye after all these mop flies, Squirminators, etc. :)

Since a traditional Catskill dry can use either paired mallard feathers for the wing or a single wood duck feather which has the tip cut out and folded, does anyone know if one method predates the other or are the two methods just a reflection of different Catskill tiers? In any case Matt's quill body traditional Catskill is a thing of beauty. Thanks for the video.
