In deference to bob9 I'm starting the thread early. In deference to Gigmaster I've chosen another historic theme; classic winged bass flies. Dr. James Henshall wrote The Book of the Black Bass in 1881 and revised it several times into the 20th century. It is available as a free PDF download here http://openlibrary.org/books/OL23282...the_black_bass and other places. See the image, below, for Dr. Henshall's Four Favorite Flies (although there is apparently too many swords in the tail of the Henshall). If you have other sources for classic bass flies feel free to share.
