The Orange Soft Hackle is one of those "kitchen sink" flies that can save the day on lakes or rivers. We've had days where they saved the day on lakes, trailing them behind a leech pattern. It is also a good searching pattern to look for active fish in lakes on a slow sinking line or in the rivers fished as a nymph then allowed to swing at the end of the drift. Highly recommended for anglers fishing high alpine lakes. Size 12 pictured.
