Nice flies, guys!
I like to swing big soft hackles, too.

Nice!

I am out of town right now. When I get back I will take some photos of soft hackle style flies that I have been tying too.

Best Fishes,

Really interesting selection up top.

What size hooks are you tying those on?

The 'fly that started it all for me?'

A Royal Coachman. Lord only knows how old this pattern may be, but it just works .. Anywhere. Only one other 'must,' and you have to guess. Another 'anywhere' fly.

The only photo handy is of my trout box, I use the flies in it and the feather wings from a wallet for trout here.



Other flies all the way up to large tubes and Sculpin patterns see use for trout also. The smaller flies come out on the small creeks and rivers, I fish them using rods that range from a 6' 6" bamboo flea all the way up to my heavy Spey rods. Here the trout are mixed in with salmon so you are way better off using a rod that can handle whatever takes up the fly rather than a dedicated trout rod. It is not uncommon to get into a silver with a little Jock O' Dee on a 3 - 5 weight single hand rod even on a small stream. However, I am more comfortable on the other side of the scale when you hook a 14" rainbow on a 9 weight 13' 9" Spey rod.

I would have to say that any fly I ever posted on this forum is a trout fly because every one of them catches trout.

Kill the hens you kill the river.

Boxes of flies in the Jeep and 95% of them have never gotten wet. The ones that do ... just work?

Yes Fred, it's fun and productive to swing some of the old standby's.

One morning a couple years ago I got into a bunch of fish using R Coachman, ran out of them after going thru a dozen so I went to the local shop to pick up a few. The guy behind the counter scoffed and said no one uses those Eastern outdated flies. After leaving the shop I busted out laughing and was thankful that no one used them anymore...

I actually swing a lot more soft hackles with smaller 14/16 trailers. The last two years the trailer has taken a larger % of fish.

If you are referring to mine...

Mostly, Mustad 3665A sz. 6. The few larger ones in the middle are Daiichi 2271 sz. 2 (nice hook, I wish they made them smaller), and a few Daiichi 2370's in 6 and 8 (straight eyed).

Excellent bunch of ties by everyone so far- I hope to see a lot more!!

Thanks to all,

-Bill
