Re: CDL winged soft hackle

Boarmountain... I like that fly. The wing certainly favors the caddis whether tied as a dry or in my case a cripple caddis, or emerger, or as Craig Mathews describes one of his flies "as possibly an caddis, mayfly, or stonefly cripple or emerger" its covering most of the bases.
