The Ray Charles in unquestionably the most popular fly pattern for fly fishing the Bighorn River.  The Soft Hackle Ray Charles is a highly effective version of the original.  The Ray Charles Soft Hackle adds a wire rib and hen hackle as a collar.  At times the soft hackle version seems to out fish the old standby.  I really like to fish the Soft Hackle Ray Charles in larger versions such as 12’s and 14’s in addition to the standard sizes 16 – 20.  I feel that the silhouette of the soft hackle version not only represents a sowbug but a scud effectively as well.  I like to tie the soft hackle ray in orange and pink because of this fact along with the standard grey and tan colors.
