Re: Soft Hackle fly question
I've caught more big fish swinging flies than using any other technique. I guess what swinging flies simulate are insects being floated/swept downstream, which actually happens.
What's great is that fish see the fly before the leader or line; and I find swinging flies a relaxing way to fish.
If I cast a soft hackle wet fly across stream and retrieve I wonder if it looks like a small fish to a trout.
