The Dette Files

A little sample from a long overdue project, The Dette Files.

Starting in September, selected contents of Dette card file, photos, notes and other ephemera will be released on

The Dette Files project aims to preserve the landscape, legends and the lifestyle of the Catskill region along with sharing the craft of Catskill fly tyers Walt, Winnie & Mary Dette.

The Dette card file is a collection of fly samples tied over the last 89 years. When any pattern is tied an extra is kept with important notes and sometimes feather and dubbing samples to maintain a reference point and to ensure consistency with the pattern over time.
