The string effect in QCD is investigated using data from the OPAL detector at LEP. By comparing the charged particle flow in three-jet multihadronic events with that in events with two jets and a hard isolated photon, the sensitivity to particular models is reduced. A comparison with various Monte Carlo models is presented. The difference in particle flows in the interquark region is found to be well reproduced by a leading order calculation of soft gluon emission, in the spirit of the Local Parton Hadron Duality hypothesis.
