for my upcoming trip to the Upper Delaware.....I also like fishing my ISOs dry via a soft hackle when my standard parachutes are not working....same body method as the Sulphur hen hackle I posted...only difference is instead of hen hackle....my wings are 1) 2 or 3 turns of a tied in Hungarian partridge feather....followed by 2) 2 or 3 turns of a CDC feather ....tied in by the tip and hackled around just like any other feather. I find in slow water with trout that seemingly have all day to inspect your fly...these offer me better odds.
Tail (usually split antron schuck) is completely optional I still have not convinced my self whether its a benefit...a weakness...or doesn't even matter

Walter: That is a pretty nice looking pattern. When you are fishing those in soft water can you see them or do you need to use something like a parachute adams to be able to see?

These are so visible its not funny. They seem to stay afloat remarkably well....once its wet its really a simply drying out with a cloth...maybe into the dry fly shaker but I never use any floatant on any fly even when it has no CDC in it.

Interesting, guess I will try tying some up and giving it a go the next time I'm on soft water and the parachute adams are being rejected. Thanks for the tips.
