Purple Soft Hackle (Isonychia / Slate Drake emerger)

Recommended Posts

For those of you who like to fish waters with the Iso mayfly (in my area, that means Central Pennsylvania!) as much as me, here's one that is tough to go without. The "Purple Soft Hackle" was introduced to me by Eric Stroup and Skip Galbraith, and hasn't left my box since. In this video, I show how to tie the pattern, and then discuss the various methods used to fish it, from early summer to fall.


Any additional thoughts or techniques used for Iso's are welcome!
