About the Soft Touch Trout Fly

The Soft Touch fly is equally successful when used as a lure or as a nymph.

Using a fast Sinking Line, and letting it settle, the fly will lift and either an intermittent pull will draw it down as a lure, or a steady, slow retrieve will give the impression of a nymph. It is best to tie the latter with olive marabou and green plastazote.
