Default Re: Gartside's Soft Hackle Streamer ???

Sorry...
I highly disagree with using weight tied into the nose of a Gartside softhackle
That would kill the "action" that is most important to this fly
If you drop one of these flies into water at your feet you'll see the fly pulsating or undulating in the current.
With weight at it's nose, that would hardly make it more than a Clouser clone.
I can assure you that the Gartside softhackle is more than that,
