RIO's How To Series: How to drift a soft hackle


It's hard to find a more versatile and effective fly for a trout stream than a soft hackle. I usually tight line swing soft hackle flies but in this video Simon reminds us that they can be drifted as well.

The rigging is quite easy. Simon is fishing a Sage MOD fly rod with a RIO InTouch Single Handed Spey line, a line that overheads and roll cast exceptional well. He's using RIO Suppleflex leaders and Suppleflex tippet connected with tippet rings. The sighter is made with RIO's Two Tone Indicator Tippet and the only part that takes a little "homework" to put together. I included the demonstration video of how to make your own sighters.

RIO's Two Tone Indicator Tippet - plus how to make the "Slinky" Indicator from RIO Products on Vimeo.

Just add our Trout Spey Soft Hackle Madness Fly Kit and you've got an effective method to catch trout from east to west and north to south.
