Well, Last Thursday we got it done. Super fun times tying up some really cool techy dry flies with great folks. Someone even got to tie they're first fly ! So Since we tied some for the surface game I figured this week we should get something going on the subsurface side of things. And so what might you ask is on the docket for this Thursday .......... SOFT HACKLES ! Everyone loves soft hackles and I mean everyone, and if you don't we will make a believer out of you ! Soft hackles are tremendous players on our rivers and can be an absolute dead ringer when things get a little........off. These flies are straight to the point and fun to tie. I think our flagship for this evening is going to be the soft hackle pheasant tail. The pheasant tail nymph needs no intro and in soft hackle form it is deadly. Now the pheasant tail soft hackle is whats on the table for the evening but if they'res a nasty little variant you'd like to spin up bring it on ! For the pheasant tail soft hackle you will need...
1. You're favorite standard nymph hook
2. Uni Thread in 6/0 or Veevus 10/0-8/0
3. Small or BR copper wire
4. pheasant tail ( go figure )
5. peacock herl
6. gold or brass bead ( this is optional )
So there it is guys and gals. Soft hackle pheasant tails for this Thursday Doors are ajar @ 6:00 and we will tie until they're done !
