Purple Soft Hackle

This Eric Stroup soft hackle fly pattern is an imitation for the Isonychia nymph. The fly is on the large side tied at a #8-14 size. I tie this using Laser Dubbing in the lavender and purple colors, but I implore you to use any gray to purple dubbing you may have.

I fish this fly as a dropper off of a dry fly through riffled waters and as a single fly in slower waters. ideally, it will sit just under the water surface and get hit hard by aggressively feeding trout.
