Partridge Soft Hackle

Trout Flies - Partridge Soft Hackle 6 Flies - $16.50

Color / Size
A small emerger imitation with flash and a buggy appearance! This little pattern just screams "eat me"!

A great prospecting fly for year round. Give it a swing and let it dangle, once this fly pulls to the surface, the fish can't resist.

I've listed my favorite color/size combinations here, but if you'd like something other than those listed, just email me.

Pattern Recipe and Notes:

Hook: Standard Nymph size 12-18
Body: Floss
Thorax: Peacock Herl or Hare Mask dubbing
Hackle: Partridge, Pheasant, Hen Neck

Try a variety of colors for the body - yellow, orange, olive green are the standards, but also try black, wine, purple and red. Go sparse on the hackle - 1 to 2 turns is plenty. This pattern fishes well dead drifted and on the swing. Let 'er dangle too! The more chewed up it gets, the better it fishes.
