This is my favorite time of year to fish soft hackles for brookies on the Kinnickinnic River. I don’t know what it is but now through the month of May I can’t seem to keep the fish off of my soft hackle flies. This is not a complaint, just an observation.
If you’ve never fished soft hackles I highly recommend that you stop by your local fly shop and pick up a few for your fly box. Stop by Bob Mitchell’s Fly Shop on a Monday (#ProDay) and I’ll help pick out some winners for you.
Get out and fish!
