The Hackle Stackers


MY fondness for the late Bob Quigley’s Hackle Stacker flies dates back to a trip to the Railroad Ranch on the Henry’s Fork back in ’04.

Blue skies, sight fishing to big heads, with a Flavinea Hackle stacker on the point: still one of the best day’s dry fly fishing I’ve enjoyed. Quigley’s tying technique, developed for the picky fish of California’s spring creeks, delivers a lovely low riding mayfly dry.
