Default Re: A Soft Hackle Kinda Day

Those are some great looking flies! I think you'll find they'll fish just fine. Thanks for taking the time to post them. I didn't always fish them, but over the past couple of years I've found myself fishing them more often. Eunan nailed my thoughts on improving your ties. Strip one side of the feather tie it in wrap back up and stick with 2-3 turns of hackle at most.

This video by Hans Weilenmann REALLY helped me improve my soft hackle technique. I've learned lots from his videos--thank you much Hans!
