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.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
