Partridge and Orange Soft Hackle

In this fly tying tutorial, I share another version of the venerable "Partridge and Orange," one of my favorite soft hackle flies. This is a traditional pattern that continues to have a place in many of our fly boxes, and for good reason. Prior to this video, I participated in a wet fly swap, and decided on this pattern to share. This fly can represent various insects, most notably caddis and sulfur flies. I prefer to fish the fly in the surface film, though I go over other techniques in the video. If you tie this pattern in other variations, please consider sharing those on this YouTube page.

Thanks for viewing this fly tying tutorial; feel free to leave any questions/comments on this YouTube page, or email me:
