April 30, 2018 By: Erin Block

  • Recently, The Flyfish Journal held its annual BahamaCon, “a casual gathering at Deneki’s Andros South bonefish lodge, to chase bonefish, barracuda and all manner of beautiful things.” From amazing video footage to great short essays, view the week via The Flyfish Journal.
  • Soft hackles are simple fly patterns that prove effective in a diversity of fishing conditions. “They are a perfect example of flies that play off simplicity, clean lines, and perfect proportions,” writes Andrew Grillos of Montana Angler. “They’re also very fun and effective flies that work both on the dead-drift and swung under tension.” Learn more about how to tie soft hackle patterns via Orvis.
