Red Quill Soft Hackle

Hendrickson season here on the east coast. As I have found, trout do not always go for the adults on the surface especially early in the season and emerging patterns are more effective. I like to cast down stream, just below the surface. A tip I received was to grease up the fly with floatant like a dry fly as fish become more active and begin to target the surface. Get out there!
