Light Cahill

A classic Catskill dry fly originated by Dan Cahill over 100 years ago. A basic imitation of a Pale Morning Dun or a Pale Evening Dun, the Light Cahill fly is a standard that ranks right up there with the Adams. An assortment in all sizes is a must in every fly box. If you are interested in tying your own Light Cahill flies, see our fly pattern recipe below. Color, Light tan.Size: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Light Cahill,
August 23, 2009
By: Wolffeman
"Wow, this is the type of information I been looking for and it nice to see the orgional pattern of the fly. Its hard on the Internet to find this type of data. Also this fly history is amazing. It is considered to be useable nation wide here in America. I've looked for this orgional information for quite some time and I have never found this old pattern until now. Another reason for wanting this fly is it is suppose to compete with the Adams on useage. You also need to know that there are modern versions of this fly."

Great Fall Fly,
September 19, 2008
By: fisharman
from Canterbury CT
"I use this fly all throughout the Fall. Put it up stream and just let it float down. Let it stop at the end and hold on! I use a size 16 or smaller. This fly can't be beat in the Fall up here in CT."
