The ARF Gen-X Soft Hackle is an excellent fly style that is time-tested (classic soft hackle) but utilizes modern tying materials. The wire body gives the fly just enough weight to break through the surface so it can be effectively fished underneath smaller dry flies as a dropper. The flash tails add sparkle and mimic bubbles coming off an emerger or diving egg laying adult and can also give the impression of a trailing shuck. The wire body has a crisp silhouette and good segmentation and sheen. The abdomen is Ice Dub, which adds sparkle and traps air bubbles. Movement in the fly and a veiling effect is provided by the soft hackle. It is effective dead drifted, swung, with a lift and as a drowned spinner or stuck in the shuck emerger. Available in several colors useful as attractor patterns or in match the hatch situations.
