Soft-Hackle Dry Selection
New in and perfectly tied (and presented) 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!
