Hmmm, I will see if I can find one that looks half respectable for public presentation.

I tied a few soft hackles under the guiding eye of Devinsdad, had another beer, and then moved on to a few EHCs tied with some of those fancy feathers we were looking at awhile back.

On the soft hackles, I wondered whether I should build up the body at all? (My instructor said "keep it sparse" but politely left enough room in his guidance to suggest the possibility that someone, somewhere, might think I was doing it right). I was using #12 thread. For the most part, I kept the body thin, barely dressing the hook with thread and a little flash. How do you tie yours?

Don.....I've never seen a tutorial or video on them....I've looked....but I do know that Enrico has a website that you can join for a small fee charged to the credit card of your choice :D

http://epflies.com/

I just played around and experimented with it until I got results that were close...and as fate would have it I was told I did it pretty similar to his way....but maybe not exactly??

I'll be home in tommorow sometime...Michele is in the hospital....which is gonna most likely knock me out of L&T .....I'll see if I cant do a tutorial or something to at least steer ya in the right direction.......I have yet to play with the skinnier sparse patterns....but was wantin to work on a few of them.

Aaron.....first let me preface this by saying that I have'nt hardly tied any trout flies in about the last year and a half with the exception of a few for my buddy Dr. Mike for a trip out west last fall. But....when I was tying them....I'd barely put a tag on most or maybe a biot for the body and was told by the grand master guru Achmed Harishi Blakey that you should also keep the hackle very sparse......I tried to follow his wise words with the exception of the red fox squirrel nymph soft hackle .....and I have actually caught a few fish on them......imagine that :D

Aaron, while ODG3 is the board expert on soft hackles, I have tied a few, and there are a number of tutorials on the WEB.

The traditional thread to use is Persall's Gossamer Silk, which is a bit thicker than 6/0. You make the body by going out and back one time, so it's just 2 layers of silk. Some traditional tiers cover that with a single layer of silk floss as well. The hackle is then 2 to 3 turns of partridge, giving, about 24 "legs" (I've not counted, but too many barbs is a common problem.)

For size, I'd say a #14 or #16.
