Re: Fishing soft hackles

It's the first time I've seen these. Thanks for posting. And yes, I still need the basics.

Re: Visiting John Shaner (Fly Tying Historian)

I realize this is an older post. Regardless, thanks for sharing the info and the pictures. I met John at a seminar he did at the Northwest Fly Fishing Expo at Warren, Michigan, in March of 2018. Though he would not remember me, he is the reason I am here and fishing soft hackled flies.

Re: First Time Out

SenecaLaker ~ I really can't confirm the lower numbers on the AuSable yes or no. I have be doing pretty good this year, however, the largest fish I have caught this year was an 11" brook.

Re: Wet Flies on the Au Sable River

I enjoyed reading your review on the AuSable. I fish it regularly and have a cabin off of Stephan Bridge Road. Sorry to hear about your loss, hope it turns up.

This is my first year fishing soft hackles, and there is no turning back. Like Nemes wrote, I am a soft hackled addict.

Re: First Time Out

New to the forum and soft hackles, I'm hooked. Been lurking and reading threads for quite a while. My ears perked up when you said you were gonna be fishing the AuSable. I love fishing the AuSable. Been staying on the North Branch for the past few years. Good luck on your trip.
