Testing the deer hair substitute for scarce hackle fly.
I took those flies tied with deer hair instead of hackle. They Work! Not a new fly to my little wild creeks just a new material on a old stand-by that somebody probably tied that way for a life time before those genetic engineers stepped in.
Caught lots of fish and here's several examples.
The stream I tested the in is not known for monster but fish that will eat the pattern with hackle pretty well. Believe till the fad dies off some this just might be a technique I'll continue to use
