The Story

Soft hackle wet flies are just amazing in their productivity. The theory is that the wet flies pulsate so well as they move through the water. Whatever the reason is, these flies work remarkably well and you should have a box dedicated to soft hackles in every way shape and form. This particular soft hackle wet fly is an excellent pattern with a bit of flash added to make it that much more attractive.

Sizes: 14, 16.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these little flies, so do trout! I have found swinging these through the current has become my favorite way to fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds Up Well First cast, nice cutthroat, and continued attracting more fish. Held up well after several fish. Made it a real pleasure to return to wet fly fishing in the Fall. Will always have some of these in my box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple But Deadly! Fished this fly on the Big Flat Brook and South Branch of the Raritan River this past week with outstanding results! A simple, but deadly fly dead drifted and swung at the end!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of movement This is a really nice emerger. The soft hackle gives it a lot of lifelike movement that entices the brookies in Western Mass. Must have for some tailwaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding fly 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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from killer flies 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.
