"North Country Angling for Southern Appalachian Trout"

I am excited to share a link to a PDF version of an article that I have written on tying soft hackles for the the trout streams of the southern Appalachian mountains "North Country Angling for Southern Appalachian Trout," which has just been published in the May-June issue of  Wildlife in North Carolina, a magazine I have enjoyed reading since I was a child.

Please visit the magazine's website to read my article, "North Country Angling for Southern Appalachian Trout."

    For one who is learning more about soft hackles this article was A plus. Thanks for sharing an informative and interesting read on this great fly pattern.

  3. Lovely article. The yellowhammer, though declining, is still a bird I see in local hedgerows in East Wales, UK

    1. I had no idea the yellowhammer was so widespread - I spend enough time in the forests here to have seen one, but I don't never have. (It might be less the birds than my knowledge of them.)

  5. I live in NC and love tying and fishing with North Country soft hackles. So I'd love to read your article, but it's no longer accessible on the WRC website. Any chance you have a copy you can share?
