Soft hackle question

Recommended Posts

What size do you carry for trout?  I am talking about simple flies like Partridge and Orange.

I mostly use 14-18, but might go a size or two larger for specific hatches like a March Brown or an October Caddis.

It depends on the river and the hatches that are present. In some areas, it might be well known by the locals to have smaller insects in general so try to match the size to the general sizes available that river. Check with your local fly shop as to sizes. My sizes are the same as everyone here has already said.

When I tie like that, I tie to the species.
