As many of you are already aware, my favorite caddis soft hackle, the Squirrel and Ginger, is featured in the “In The Vise” column of American Fly Fishing (May/June 2021). You get my narrative, materials list, and step-by-step tying instructions. Please support publications like American Fly Fishing, one of the few remaining fly fishing magazines.
Thanks Ron, and thanks for reading.
I love the Squirrel and Ginger, Current Seams and American Fly Fishing. Diane and I, although North Georgia residents, have fished the Farmington with Pat many times over the last twenty years. We keep hoping that we’ll have that chance meeting with you at the shop, but alas no luck thus far. We’ll keep trying whenever we’re on the way to visit my sister in Dover, NH. Keep up the great work.

Hi Ron, thanks so much for taking the time to comment, and for your kind words. I actually spend very little time inside UpCountry, so your chance of seeing me out on the river are probably much better!
Love it. This article reminded me to tire couple of dozen in various sizes just before I leave for my Montana trip on June 2nd. Since I took that soft tackle time class with you I’ve been tying and fishing this fly especially in Montana and I have to tell you in the evenings when the cat is flies are so thick that they totally paste your windshield this is a producer.
Ray, thanks for taking the time to write. That is so gratifying to hear! I love that you’re having so much success. Now we need to see a picture of some of those Montana trout with a S&G!
