    I'm getting quite frustrated with my soft hackles. I have to say, Hans Weilenmann and Davey McPhail make it look easy. Anyway, every time I try to wrap my partridge feathers, they're quite webby, and don't work well at all. Am I just using crummy feathers, or the wrong ones, maybe? Any...

    So, for whatever reason, I've mostly ignored soft hackle flies for my PNW trout fishing. No idea why, but I've either been dry or nymph for almost all of my fishing. In an effort to change that, who has some soft hackle suggestions for me? Mostly just small cascade creek fishing. But even...

    I just picked up a decent looking furnace saddle a couple days ago and I'm looking for some suggestions as to what to do with it. I typically use furnace for stimulators (I tie a lot of them), but not much else. Any good pattern ideas?
