In discussions with Mark about this fly, he was of the opinion that the tail should be shorter due to "short strikes"...Small-mouth bass don't have that problem. :)

Mike,

They work here just fine...I carry a memorial box in my vest with nothing but Mark's flies in it...A "Softhackle" box...It has a label on it, "The Libertone Box".

I'm a match the hatcher and I fish them to feeding fish more often than not. Mark wanted me to fish them the old fashon way and swing them...That works...I think that wets in the right sizes work simiilarly to emergers. They need to be sparse and may appeaar like insects stuck in the surface film...

They have been fooling fish for a long time.

Mark was the guy that got this old ex-Teamster ex-hockey player to stand at an embroidery thread display in Jo Anns! They were on sale and all these women were giving me some odd looks...Maybe I imagined it, but it was funny...The colors available are incredible!

Mark was always helpful to others on this site and a real angling gentleman.

Spence, last June I picked up a fish on one of your PA streams that has a reputation for tough customers by powdering a wet tied to imitate a Drunella cornuta and fishing it in the film. That fish had passed on a number of dry and emerger patterns, but ate the soft hackle right away.
