Default Re: Wet / Streamer Tie-Along?

Wet Fly / Streamer Tie–Along - Pattern Recipes


Well, we've got over 20 people signed up for this tie-along now, which is a pretty good number. But, there's still room for more because this isn't a fly swap, so there's no need to tie multiple copies of any of the patterns; just one of each, unless you want them for your own fishing (which may not be a bad idea with the season about to open in most States in the next 4-6 weeks! ).

1. Partridge & Orange

a. Hook: Wet fly, 1xl, #12-#18 (Daiichi 1550 or equivalent)
b. Thread: Uni 6/0, orange / Pearsall’s gossamer silk, orange, or equivalent

Feel free to substitute materials for the ones given in the recipes above. The recipe given is for the classic pattern, but each of these 6 patterns exists today in many variant forms, so experiment some, if you’d like.

Post or PM me with any questions that you have along the way.

I’ll post the Partridge & Orange photo step-by-step next weekend. I’ll also post some web links for each pattern, when available; to provide you with some alternative ways to tie up these patterns.
