Dusty Wissmath produced this soft hackled emerger with for an excellent pulsating movement. Tricky fish that wouldn’t take duns or adults off the top, will find it difficult to resist this BWO emerger. This particular pattern has little weight, which helps keep it in that strike zone for emerging mayflies.
Soft hackles offer excellent movement and imitations for emerging insects.

Great fly & well made (1st one so far has many strikes with no damage). Tied at the top of a series with a Frenchie nymph below. Admitedly the nymph gets most takes but 25% on the soft hackle above is great. This is a Northern New England must!
No Joke...I caught 30 plus fish in under 3 hours on this black soft hackle in Pa Mountains. Thanks for an amazing day on the water.
I haven't had a chance to fish with these flies yet. But I can say that my experience with The Fly Crate was excellent and I will do business with them again.
Fished this for the first time on the Mitchell River in Surrey County, NC. on March 22 and took a number of Browns and Rainbows feeding on emergers. It worked best swinging it down and across. Being weightless the current held it high in the water column with some fish taking it in dead drift. Fished either a #18 Mercury Baetis or English Pheasant tail behind it both of which took fish.
These are well tied and I am using them as the transition between nymphs and dries ... Should be very successful with these in my box. Service was great!
