If I had to hazard a guess to the quantities; roughly 40% Natural Brown, 30% Olive, 10% Gray, 10% Golden Stone 10% Orange, churned up in a Krupps coffee grinder.

Re: Next lot of soft hackles

Thanks for all the feedback :)

Re: New member intro and I need some advise

Hi Ruard and Aaron thanks for the welcome, I'll report back on how my first soft hackle outing goes. I subscribe to the following alternative spelling of flytying: C-O-N-T-R-O-L. But then that should not surprise anyone here, methinks I hear you Hans 'C-O-N-T-R-O-L' - I'll try not to let the hackle ...

Re: New member intro and I need some advise

Thanks Hans and Mike, appreciate your input and tips. I hear you on the flymph front and look forward to tying a few once I feel a bit more confident with my soft hackle wets. I've got a copy of Stewarts and also Pritts book and will have a read when I find the time, hopefully this weekend :D
