Thanks guys, just having a bit of fun. The first soft hackle I've tied in some time, didn't think it would be purple and glitzy. :)

Ruard- I've really enjoyed your fishing reports and getting an insight into some of the techniques and species you fish for. Very cool, thanks for sharing. :D

How about a new name for the purple version. I nominate wilted cabbage. ;)

That purple fly is right on the money. Wilted Cabbage? Madison Cabbage?

This whole thread has been awfully inspiring. I must resist from doing these right now. Love everyone's take on this style. I bet the fish here would really attack these flies.

Love the pattern!

I should be stopping by the Mad soon and I will have to try this pattern IF the runoff is over, which I doubt it will be.

That was a great read, thanks for posting it up from the beginning, Ray. I love the flies at the beginning, you know, before all that mad cow purple stuff got all over everything. Although, I should actually try and fish a purple fly before I start casting aspersions.
