Outstanding fly -
By: Bonky from Waterford,Ct
This fly and all flies from Orvis are top notch. I have tried tying my own flies and they don't even come close to Orvis. Five thumbs up!!!! Bob
killer flies -
By: bambooBDP from Vermont
Soft hackles are generally under rated, under appreciated, and surprising effective. From West coast to East coast & a wide variety of salmonids, this is a fly not to neglect.

I have loved soft-hackles since I started fly fishing in 1961 w/ my Dad. This is a great selection that fills out the proper sizes and colors, with a bit of flash, to boot. Great filler in my wet fly box, and will be my go-to set for the months.
Rainbow first cast -

This fly is fantastic! Landed a fat rainbow on my first cast with this soft hackle, when nothing else was working.

High quality wet fly as always from Orvis. Good movement in the water. It attracts fish. Get one. Get two.
Deadly Fly! -
By: MarkMonc from Minneapolis, MN
When Sylvester Nemes wrote his book all those years back on the Soft Hackled Wet fly and pronounced it as simply "deadly" I couldn't resist not giving them a try here in the Midwest. THEY ARE DEADLY! While there are many copies of the fly available, the overall quality and consistency of materials used makes this version the best I know of and will continue using them until my days end!

poor quality -
The craftsmanship on these fly's was substandard. The hackle was not spun completely around the eye and was too sparse. The size was incorrect as well, way smaller than the size specified. Got a size 18 or smaller? when I ordered a 16.
