Ever since I read the books from Sylvester Nemes about soft hackled wet flies, I had preference to them. They are simple but beautiful and deadly effective when fished properly.
Very versital, they work well with a bead or tied with lead wire. Fished swung downstream or fished upstream like fishing a nymph, they are a staple in my fly box.
Tie a few or I’ll tie them for you but don’t be without them!
