New-Age Gartside Soft-Hackled Streamer
Hook: Orvis 228S #4
Thread: Uni Thread 6/0 black
Underwing: Ripple Ice Fiber copper
Hackle:Yellow and brown blood marabou
This is the second week of the 2023 Streamside Orvis fly tying class. Jack Gartside’s Soft-Hackle streamer is alive even when it’s dead drifting downstream. Jack’s use of marabou by hackling it is ingenious and extremely effective and made this pattern one of his most revolutionary. It rests alongside other of his creations like the Sparrow, Gurgler, Carrot Top, and Pheasant Hopper. This fly can be tied in a variety of colors for many common baitfish and trout species.
