Our own Mark "Softhackle" Libertone is now international! Hans Weilenmann has a tying demo of Mark's Lil' Dorothy on his site and mentions him as the originator! By name...

Wow! Way to go Libertone! Will you still speak with us mere plebs here on Troutnut? :)

Posts: 560Mark would just cringe at my bastardized soft hackle that I have been tying lately, and dying to try out. I use my dependable bead at the head, and then place in some micro rubber legs behind the bead the flex floss type that become the caddis pupa horns that hang back, after I dub the body then the soft hackle of a sage grouse that has some beautiful prominent barred hackle.
Fortunately for we fly anglers there are folks like Mark that retain the tradition. Good for Mark, and I always take the time to enjoy Hans Weilenmann.
