How is it going down here.

Starting quite a few years ago I got into swing old school wet flies. It is about all I do for trout. I have been tying up some March Browns and such. Wondering if anyone would be interested in a few step by steps.

Totally. The more the better. I am a big fan of Sylvester Nemes and love everything about traditional wets and soft hackles.

I'd love to see anything about soft hackles/wetflies/swinging them for trout. It is a tactic I've been trying to learn more about recently!

Marty, I would love to see some SBS on tying classic wets. Especially any tips you may have for setting wings.

Gotta love that snappy wet fly pull! Red Tag is probably the most simple wet but soo effective.

Flyfishing, Jeeps, tattoos, love, rock & roll and other religious matter.

Copy that, sounds like I need to spend some time on trout stuff. Having only fished classic wet flies for the past 10 years, I am no expert. I could catch 10 times more fish with a nymph and a bobber, but have found swinging a team of wet flies to be far more rewarding. I have an old video (30 years old) from 3M called Fishing the English Way. I am not sure how you could get a hold of one, but its a classic. Great old school info on how to swing a team of wet flies. I will get on some step by steps and try to hit as many as I can. I fish them all, but the Bumble is my go-to.
