Trailer Trash Thursday Soft Hackle Edition

Joel La Follette - Thursday, November 17, 2016

While in Paris many years ago I visited the Louvre museum and viewed an ancient Egyptian wall painting depicting the gathering of food for a grand feast. One of the figures pictured there looked to be angling with a rod and fly. The fly appeared to be a soft hackle, and it seemed to be working. While not hailing from ancient Egypt, Simon Gawesworth is nevertheless a noted authority on angling and shares here his fondness for this technique.

Very understandable demo by Simon. Great to see how to present the soft hackles and choose the correct water. Nice way to hook up the flies with the "ring."
