The Story

If there is one spider pattern in your box, make it this hare and partridge fly. A strong generic soft hackle pattern, effective on everything from March Browns to caddis. Fish it down and across or as a damp dry-fly cast upstream to rising fish. Tactical hook is barbless and features a claw point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Wet Fly As described and works upstream, downstream, across or as a nymph. Most effective in tails of pools and riffles, for active insects like Stoneflies and Caddis. Can produce jarring strikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Wet Fly with Tactical Hook Wet flies don't seem to get enough attention from my fellow Anglers, but are very effective and can be fished multiple ways, upstream as a dry or nymph, swung downstream or micro stripped back. The barbless Tactical Hook appears to improve hookups the swing flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buggy Wet Fly Buggy wet fly which will work for Stoneflies, Caddis or Hendricksons. Can be fished wet or as a nymph either dead drift or active. Appropriate before a hatch and in the riffles in skinny water.
