The Story

If there is a great looking caddis imitation with movement, weight and realism, this soft hackle fly is it. One of the best-looking nymph flies we've seen. Tied with soft hackle behind a weighted head for lifelike appearance, you can swing these flies across and down and then strip them up like an emerging nymph swimming to the surface. Color, Olive.

Sizes: 12, 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft Hackle This fly is great. Lots of water time and it still looks good. It gets down in the water column fast and stays

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Monster Killer I caught my personal best 25.5 in. Brown on Neshannock Creek in W.PA fishing a size 16 exactly as described in "Details". He absolutely hammered it on the rise. Caught 3-4 more in the 15-18 inch range the same morning, an absolute go to for Western PA waters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Standard in my fly box Beautiful fly, and the tungsten BH gets it down that much quicker. Also very a very durable piece, especially in smaller sizes. It lasted all day fishing with numerous Rainbow and Brown trout strikes. Trout love this fly on the swing!
