‘Vintage’ Pattern: Carey Special

Carey Special-Fly Pattern-SwittersB

Another ‘vintage’ stillwater (lake) fly pattern…the Carey Special. Peacock Herl body w/ Pheasant Rump feather fibers for tail and same for a wrapped wing material. This is the classic look. The pattern lends itself to substitutions of body material/color and the wing material can be substituted as long as feather fibers extend at least the length of the abdomen. I don’t weight this pattern with a BH or underbody wrap. Size 10, 2xl. I fish this with an Intermediate sink line either hand retrieved or with the lazier troll along presentation.

Stillwater Dragon Pattern…

“Around the seel no tortur´d worm shall twine, no blood of living insects stain my line; Let me, less cruel, cast the feather´d hook, with pliant rod athward the pebbled brook. Silentt along the mazy margin stray, and with the fur-wrought fly delude the prey.”    John Gay, Rural Sports, 1720
