Size 24 Soft Hackle

Cheech - December, 2019

Ireally hadn't tied a soft hackle with this style of hackle in a size 24 before I tried this one, so why not film it... Anyway, small soft hackles should be in any winter angler's box, and they can illicit aggressive strikes if you swing them through a pod of fish rising to midges on the surface. No need explaining more about this pattern. Tie them up, swing them, and hold on!
