Hungarian Partridge Feathers - In this fly tying tutorial, I demonstrate three effective ways to utilize Hungarian Partridge feathers. Though I focus mainly on the breast feathers, I take some time at the beginning of the video to stress that entire skins have an excellent variety of feathers and should be utilized at the tying bench for many patterns. The Hungarian Partridge feathers are some of the most coveted in fly tying, and for many reasons. For starters, their mottling looks very similar to natural insects. Next, the feathers can be found in a variety of earth-tone colors, thereby allowing a tyer to mimic a variety of mayflies and caddisflies. Finally, when wet, these fibers tend to nearly breathe with the water, which again is very similar to the natural insect. Once you combine all of these factors, it's easy to see why tyers turn to this feather more often than not.
