    Big thumbs up for soft hackles!! Partridge and any color. I recall a day fishing in the Ozarks when I went through the same run (maybe 30 yards long) five time in a row, caught at least 5 fish each time. I just changed from partridge and green to partridge and red, then orange, yellow, and tan. It's a killer trailer behind almost any fly.

    Here are some soft hackles I've fished with lots of success, swinging them through runs, along the banks etc, sorry about the multiple posts, I'm doing this from a mobile device.

    You can use wire for the bodies, some dubbing for the thorax and some starling soft hackle

    Love that soft hackle caddis! I think I'll tie up a bunch of those. That last pic is exactly what I was talking about with changing colors. Plus, they are super fast and easy to tie, so you can keep a whole arsenal of variations.
