Helios,

That is a really good look on that green one. Is that just a dubbed thorax picked out or did you use some other material for between the body and hackle? Real nice!

You guys are tying some nice soft hackles. Since it is snowing again, I think I will tie a few of them my self.
Thanks for motivating me to tie because this winter weather has really put me in bear mode. :)

So I found every thing to tie some purple soft hackles. It has been 2 years since I tied any of these. I can't wait to fish them.

Those will be real fish catchers, Bill. Nicely done. I love that color in a soft hackle and you chose a real nice color for the hackle to go with the purple. They will definitely produce!

Thanks!

I had a Starling skin just laying around and I thought it would look nice on the purple.

The amber and green one is a hare's ear dubbed throax. I also used green holographic tinsel under the green body for more flash..

Thanks Helios. I am actually tying some soft hackles tonight I'm going to crank out a few of them. I really like that look.

Starling is the accepted substitution for Snipe ( Snipe & purple )
do the same thing myself. They are nice looking flies "W"
