Lièvre Et Perdix - Hare and Partridge Nymph

This Jean-Paul Pequegnot’s favorite nymph pattern.

Hook: Fine wire nymph hook size 16-12. If you want to weight it add a copper wire base.
Tail: Brown partridge fibers
Abdomen: buff colored wool yarn.
Thorax: Hare underfur and guardhairs mixed
Legs: brown partridge fibers tied in sections around the head to imitate legs.
Thread: brown

This set of materials without a tail and a collar of a partridge feather wrapped makes an excellent wet fly.

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.
