I am patiently waiting for the Olive Soft hackles to kick some butt. It has been a weird year, it may not happen.

I threw a few of these together tonight. Just for fun.

Size 16


A few I painted the top of the bead hot Pink. A kind of a hot spot.

That looks like a killer, Wayne. Hatches are strange this year.

When we were in Washington a local stream had an olive hatch you could set your clock by. Over cast day, 1:00 PM the hatch would start and so would the bite. By about 3:00 PM the fish were down and the hatch was done. I like a bug that hatches at a reasonable hour.
