    Very nice Alexander. Glad to see these posted.
    Personally think the soft-hackled isn't used to its amazing potential.

    Anyone read this work on soft hackled flies by Sylvester Nemes? Worth the read...:thumb:

    Yeah I've read it, great stuff! I love soft hackles, when I lived in CO I used to fish those allot, on the swing and many a trout were caught that way. Also, with a little bit of Frogs Fanny they'll float and you can dry fly them.

    It's un underrated fly that actually gets more action than people think!

    PS, I just realized that I have the same pic posted more than once thinking it was another pic! Let me dig up the other ones, I must have not done the linking right!

    Hopefully this is right:

    In the first set of pics, the green bodied (second from the last pic) one; what did you use for the body?

    I honestly do not remember, all I know is that it's kind of a rubbery flat string like material. It's been a few years since I've tied and I gave away all my material, if not I would reference it for you.
