On My Vise: Partridge and Orange 

The Partridge and Orange is a staple in many fly boxes and an excellent fly to fish during a caddis hatch.

I tie them a few different ways, sometimes with floss and wire rib but mostly, I just this simple pattern that’s been around forever.

Partridge and Orange

  • Hook: Standard Wet Fly Hook
  • Thread: Orange silk, also used for the body
  • Hackle: Lighter colored feather from near the shoulders/neck area of the partridge; tied in by the stem
  • Thorax: Natural Hares ear
