The Delektable Soft Hackle Worm is a fly from the Delektable fly series from Beartooth Flyfishing (https://www.beartoothflyfishing.com/) and created by the head designer Dan Delekta. There are several color variations available directly from Bear Tooth Fly Fishing in a few sizes. The body is made from ultra chenille and the worm’s clitellum is a combination of thread, dubbing, D-rib and a soft hackle. This is a good spring fly when the rivers are most active and banks are eroding and these terrestrial food items find their way into the aquatic food web. This will make an excellent trout fly, but the bass, panfish, carp and any other species on the hunt for an easy lunch.

Gotcha flies are pretty popular, but by changing up a couple elements, you can keep things fresh with the pattern. This version of the fly features silicone legs that provide a ton of action in the water and a hot spot that fish can key in on.
I get asked to tie custom orders of flies all the time and I really enjoy hearing back from clients who have had some success with the flies I tie for them. This pattern has been working well, and reports coming in are quite positive. If you are interested in tying your own, watch the video below, or if you would rather have me tie some, you can order here.
