I'm working through the hatch charts of streams I plan to fish this spring; the Pine is a new one, hope to be on-stream before canoe season. I'm tying a nymph/emerger/crippled emerger/dun/spinner series for each fly listed...
I agree about the 'stages' tying routine, this is the first winter I've actually disciplined myself to slow down on odds and ends (way too many patterns to try, and too much fun trying them!) and tie more seriously.
Pink fox... doesn't get more Catskill then that:)
I also like that you have left a bit of bare shank behind the eye. On the few really old Catskill dry flies I've seen the tiers always left a bit of shank exposed.
