The original orange Shakey Beeley was designed by the late Nick Nicklas, adapted from his large eastern March Brown Soft Hackle to target fall-run browns and rainbows on the Madison inside Yellowstone Park. We're not sure what it is about this fly that drives these fish so nuts, but it has easily been the best soft hackle for swinging up these big fish year in and year out for the last several decades. We later added a purple version of this fly to the lineup since these big fish also seem to love that color, and it has been a winner for us ever since also. More often than not, this is the fly we choose to start with when swinging for fall runners, and we never send anyone to the river without a few of them in September and October.
