    Rob Bailey will be guest presenter at VFFA’s Fly Tying on Thursday 22nd.  All welcome to log in & join the presentation.

    Soft Hackles can be underestimated and not well understood. In this presentation we will be covering what Soft Hackles are all about, materials and simple tips for tying them and how best to fish them. For those interested in tying along, there are no particular materials needed, other than a suitable feather (Hen or game bird hackle) and standard thread or silk.

    For those interested in tying along, there are no particular materials needed, other than a suitable feather (Hen or game bird hackle) and standard thread or silk.  For those interested, the key points I’ll be discussing are:

    • Brief history of soft hackled flies (including differentiating soft hackles from spiders and reference materials)
    • Hook selection
    • Thread selection and considerations
    • Hackle selection and considerations
    • Types of bodies (hair dubbings, feather dubbings and other alternatives)
    • Discussion on better ways to fish soft hackles

    Zoom will open at 6:45pm for a social chat, Rob will start at 7:00 pm.
