Soft-Hackle Dry Selection

New in from Bosnia and perfectly tied our Soft-Hackle Dry Selection. We don't think you will have seen anything like these before!

Soft hackled flies are usually associated with spider flies and wet patterns (flies that fish below the surface), in the USA they actually call spider patterns 'soft hackles'. These same soft hackles are very rarely incorporated into dry flies patterns. When incorporated into dry flies these softer hackles are much more life-like, with more movement, they are simply irresistible for most rising trout.  Tied with various coloured bodies these flies are one's trout quite simply cannot refuse.

These flies are also tied with a CDC wing post, not to make it float, but to act as a small sail - this allows the fly to catch any breeze and move on the surface. This combined with the soft-hackle legs makes them irresistible. If there are no fish rising, try one of these!

Descriptions of the flies in our selection:

Soft Hackle Dry Fly - Natural: Tied with a Wapsi Natural hares dubbing body and tail from a Hungarian partridge. We used Partridge because of the movement it gives in the water. The CdC wing is from a Wapsi selected first-class CdC feathers. This selection contains 2 each of sizes 14 & 16.

Soft Hackle Dry Fly - OliveTied with a Wapsi Olive hares dubbing body and tail from a Hungarian partridge. We used Partridge because of the movement it gives in the water. The CdC wing is from a Wapsi selected first-class CdC feathers. This selection contains 2 each of sizes 14 & 16.

Soft Hackle Dry Fly - Owl: One of our favourite and pretty uncommon materials for fly tying is Owl feathers. These are extremely soft feathers with extra long hairs on the hackles. When it's wet it has a lot of movement, the colour of Owl feathers make flies even more realistic. The honey colour of Owl feathers combined with cooper ribbing make a perfect combination. This fly is outstanding and our recommended first one to try out! This selection contains 2 each of sizes 14 & 16.

This selection contains 12 Soft-Hackle Dry flies direct from Bosnia in three colour variations (Natural, Olive & Owl), tied on size 14 and 16 Partridge SLD2 hooks. This selection contains 2 of each colour in each size (giving 12 flies in total).
