I usually go sparse with the soft hackle but those look good. They will certainly fish. I seem to put soft hackle of some sort on most of my nymphs. I use partridge, starling, grouse, and chicken for soft hackle.
That is one heck of a day !! All nymphing I suppose ?
Nymphing, streamers, and swinging some wets. It was 44* if I remember correctly and midges were coming off. It was the best day I ever had. Still have had some 10-20 fish days from November through January. The worst day I had was a 2 fish day but that was some really high water. I have been fishing 2-4 days a month and those usually dont coincide with the nice weather. Give winter fishing a shot either on some wild trout streams or target streams that are open year round. Its lots of fun. I will be out this Friday most likely on the Yellow Breeches to do some exploring.
I bought a few bags of loose feathers, Hareline Hungarian Partridge. BIG MISTAKE! Out of them two bags I only made 24 flies. The rest was junk but I kept it anyways. I did get the whole bird from Cabelas.
