HENRYVILLE SPECIAL - Old Flies - November 02, 2009
The fly known as the Henryville Special was first tied by Hiram Brobst, an old-time Pocono fly tier from LeHighton Pa. The fly was developed to be use for a caddis imitation on the fast boiling pocket water of the Pocono Mountains.
Henryville Special; Just Old Flies
Great article, about the history of the "Henryville Special", and about the area it was fished, and the person who originated the patten.
There is another "Henryville Special" article, that is in the" Fly of the Week" archives, from Feb 26, 2001. That was written by Skip Morris, from the "Art of Tying the Dry Fly" by Skip Morris, with permission by Frank Amato Publications, Inc., for use by FAOL.
Skip Morris version of the Henryville Special
Larry. I like your dressing of the "Henryville Special" better than the version by Skip Morris. Even though his would also be effective.
Either pattern would be a good (great?) dry fly caddisfly pattern, when dress for the angler's local waters.
Again, thank you for your contribution to "Just Old Flies and stuff"!
