    Default SPRING CREEK SOFT HACKLES - FISHED DRY OR WET - EOTG - Sep 23, 2013

    SPRING CREEK SOFT HACKLES - FISHED DRY OR WET
    For several years I have been studying the writings of the ancient anglers looking to see how they tied and fished their imitations. I developed a particular interest in the development and use of soft hackle imitations. Due to the work of Sylvester Nemes the whole fly fishing world is aware of and uses soft hackle imitations, this awareness begin in 1975 with the publication of The Soft-Hackled Fly. Prior to 1975 soft hackles were known and used by very few anglers in North America, they were still in used in Great Britain and in a few places in Europe, however the popularity of this pattern type was a far cry from what it is today.
