Light Cahill

Posted on June 11 2020

light cahill at a maine fly shop
The featured fly in this posting is the Light Cahill wet fly. The Cahill family of flies come from New York and were originated in the 1880's by Daniel Cahill. It imitates a light colored mayfly and in it's early days was considered to be one of the most effective flies you could use. It was listed in most of the early Fletcher Fly Shop catalogs. The one in the picture is tied by Justin Crouse who ties our wet flies for the shop.

    I love to read your articles that you sent out for us
    to read. Hopefully I will visit your fly shop soon and
    than go out and try my luck at fishing.
