Bead Head Crystal Soft Hackle

This wet fly pattern has all the elements of attraction that provoke strikes in fish -- soft hackle movement, flash, bead head to get it down, and a real buggy look to it. This kind of wet fly pattern can be invaluable as prospectors and droppers when you're uncertain of what is transpiring on the river. Fish this pattern as a wet fly and the soft hackle will move nicely with short sharp strips as it comes up on the swing. Sizes: 10, 12, 14, 16.

"I used three of these to put 70 blue gills in the boat in about 2 hours. One would have done the trick but lost two on snags! Great fly Orvis!"

"I wanted something different that maybe the wary trout around here had not seen, and it works. Plus it just looks good in the old fly box."
