Olive Garden Hackle Variant Fly Tying Video

In this video Tony Torrence ties his version of a Dec Hogan fly pattern called the Garden Hackle. The fly uses natural and very attainable materials that have “spey fly like” qualities. Tony demonstrates how to use a Dubbing whirler, Dubbing brush and Cautery Tool during the flies construction.

The fly fishes well on a floating line or a short sink tip when swung down and across.
