Soft Hackle Saturday – Maroon Marauder

Saturdays are a pretty busy day here in the shop.  We don’t have a lot of time to post things on the website, so Kyle came up with a great blog series called Soft Hackle Saturday.  So every Saturday we are going to post a photo of a soft hackle we have tied and like to fish.

Why are we doing this?  Because we know most of you are not fishing soft hackles like you should be!  It’s time we all got stoked on swinging for trout.

Introducing Andy’s Maroon Marauder, size 12…

    Me too Kit – I love me some soft hackles. I like to blend alpaca and flash budding together for the body then add some JV Hen Hackle for the action piece. I use them most often on the swing or behind a bead head nymph as a trailer. That works for me all over.
