Hardy's Favourite Soft Hackle

Post by joaniebo » Thu Jun 03, 2021 9:48 am

Saw this pattern awhile back and decided to do a few. I wound the floss tightly to make it thinner and, hopefully, stronger so it might not be clearly visible in the group pic. Only had a couple strands of wider peacock herl left although I would have preferred a thicker, wider peacock herl body. The second pic shows a little clearer pic of the red floss ribbing.

Fantastic looking fly, Bob. Green and red always look good.

Bob,
Utterly fantastic patterns! I wish I could tie half as good as you!

Fish when you can, not when you should! Anything short of this is just a disaster.
