Default Re: Nymphs v. Soft Hackles

The original type soft hackles are just about forgotten in today's world. The orange and partridge it one of my favorite flies. I have Joni tie up some all the time for me. (I give away quite a bit)
However you fish them, the damn things work.
A great fly is one that imitates more than one insect. The old guys knew what works, and soft hackles work. I fish them like Greenwood does, sink tip to floater.
Sly's book is a very insiteful book too. We thought it was good enough that we got one for G$ last year for Christmas.
DID YA READ IT YET GORDON?
