Fishing soft hackles on the downstream swing is a great way to entice all species of trout when nothing else is working. The natural pulsating motion caused by the soft hackle has a very fish enticing quality. This style of fishing /tying have been employed in the hunt for trout for many years and have deep roots in fly fishing in the United States.
