    Yup, soft hackles are my secret weapon up there when nothing else is working.

    Someone once said"never say never" or something like that.

    Nice flies. I have been away from the bench for the summer, but once the weather turns, I am looking forward to crankin out some flies. Soft hackles patterns are a good choice. One of my favorites too.

    Agree Chad. Also a peacock herl and partridge soft hackle has saved the day for me many times, my biggest Cutthroat have all been taken on a orange and partridge. Great flies fished dead drift or on the swing :)

    Earlier I tied up some of the beadhead soft hackles and last night wanted to try something different. I wondered what a red wire bodied soft hackle would look like. Now to find out if it fishes different than the beadhead soft hackles. I used the red BR wire and it's a neat, small body.
