"“You never gill-hook a fish as you could with a ‘J’ hook, which makes it ideal for catch-and-release fishing. Eighty percent or more of fish caught on a jig hook are hooked in the top or corner of the mouth. Also, a 60-degree jig hook will get you a much better hook set due to the lever action of the bend. As you continue to pressure a hooked fish, the angle created by the shape and the pulling of the jig hook continues to stick it farther into the fish’s mouth. In short, you can lose less fish on jig hooks. In addition the 60degree bend makes the fly ride hook point up without the use of added weight, making it weedless."

Again.. I cant say all the above is true until I try them out and I will write up a little tid bit! I just read enough to be dangerous!


Interesting. Thanks. Look forward to your report on this.

Ard, we use the Gartside sofhackles here in the salt for stripers but I wouldn't hesitate to try them on any fish that eats bait.
They have a very realistic shape and action in the water.
Here's a link to Jack's page on them
Tying the Soft Hackle Streamer
He had quite a few of his own variations you can find on the same site

Ard, I use them for Leech patterns AND baitfish with an added underbody.
Here is a dry and a wet, you can see the leech all the way (also add Purple marabou like above with black)

If you tie an underbody (I like the polar chenille) when wet it thickens the body nicely

I have been using the Marabou soft hackle with Zonker for several years:

I particularly like the top, and bottom fly. I have made a few of these too, and they are a great pattern to have in your box. (Gartside Soft Hackle)
