Bob,

Great looking soft hackle! Sulfur is a pattern that works here in NEPA almost all season long (same with a cream cahill or cream elk hair caddis). Reminds me that I've got to get some more tied up for next Spring.

As soon as I saw this fly I thought... dang, why didn't I think of using pheasant for the body?
I wish I saw this before this past weekend which I spent at sulfur central.
Thanks for the neat tie.

Very nice looking fly, especially as a soft hackle. I made a video of a partridge and orange soft hackle that relates; feel free to comment!

Thanks...
