FutureFly American Soft Hackle is as the name tells, soft hackle for tube flies. Flexible and thin stem makes these ideal to be used as a front hackle. Barbs are soft and have lively action in the water. It's recommended to pop up the barbs for example with FutureFly's Hackle Tool before tying to achieve better looking hackle. Feathers are rather large, so these fit better larger salmon tube flies, or medium sized flies if only the tip section of the feather is used.

- Soft hackle for tying front hackles for tube flies and other wet fly patterns
- Barb length about 1,5 - 2,5 cm
- Feather length about 4 - 9 cm
- Piece size about 14 x 20 cm
