Lately I’m using with great success some soft hackled flies with red silk or wool yarn bodies.
I combined the red color body with different soft feathers of inambú, dove, hen, hungarian partridge, grouse, etc.
In the picture you can see a “squad” of my soft hackled flies escorting the signature of Sylvester Nemes in one of the books that I have of him. With reading, many years ago, I learned the basics for proper tying and fishing techniques for this kind of flies.
I know that many who visit this blog are “addicted” on this topic and in fact, some also publish in very interesting web sites their own perspectives on the universe of these apparently simple but effective flies. I find this is very important and valuable source of information, so … thanks all of you!
