Fly Days of August: Orange PT Soft Hackle

August 19th, 2009 · No Comments

This has become one of my favorite variations on a classic pattern. Or, is this a mashup of a couple of classic patterns?

This pattern contains the deadly 3-P’s: Pheasant Tail, Peacock, and Partridge. Through in a bead for good measure.
