Blew on Blue Soft Hackle — $2.99

Last fall, a big discussion began at the fly tying desk here at BRF about the color purple and how deadly some flies were tied with it, such as the Purple Haze, our Purple Beeley and others. At that time, Bucky and Aaron were spending hours daily swinging fall soft hackles for the big run-up trout on the river and decided to find another color that would work as well as purple. They began tying big fall soft hackle patterns in several different colors, and they both came to the same conclusion; the color blue worked best on bright, sunny days in September and October for the big run up trout. Size 8.
