Partridge and Olive Ice Dub Soft Hackle Fly Tying Video

The Soft Hackle fly is one of our favorites for early season local flshing. The classic soft hackle is easy to tie and very effective. Fish it on a floating line down and across swing style or hang it behind your favorite dry fly. Barrett demonstrates how to tie a modern version using Ice Dub as the thorax.

We have had reports of March Browns emerging on the lower McKenzie and Willamette Rivers but the current weather pattern isn’t exactly cooperating. Look for the river to go way up over the next week. When it begins to drop and get green or clear our Spring trout fishing will be on.–CD
