Thread: Splittail - soft hackle serching pattern...

  1. Default Splittail - soft hackle serching pattern...



    * Hook: standard nymph hook size 14 and up or size 10-6 streamer hook for larger forms.
    * Weight: lead free wire .015 and copper wire wrap over body.
    * Thread: 6/0
    * Tail : wood duck flank
    * Body: dubbing blend - hare's ear mixed with red fox squirrel.
    * Hackle: partridge

    This wet fly can be stripped, nymphed, swung in currents and I've even used it juiced up as a dry/emerger during our larger mayfly hatches.

    Using two with a few feet of line in between is a deadly tactic....They are easy to cast - even roll cast.

    A good link with a SBS.....Double Soft-Hackle

    A good friend from PA brought this pattern up with him along with the Delaware Flimp.

    There you have it Greenwood....
