Default partridge and orange

partridge and orange
hook: mustad 12
thread: danville 6/0 orange
body: orange rayon floss
rib: gold tinsel
thorax: peacock herl
hackle: starling

i've been tying these guys non-stop for practice. without the thorax the feathers seemed to lay flatter and i remember someone on here using herl which i liked. i know it really should be partridge but i gotta wait on that till the next paycheck. i definitely have a burr in my bobbin which is really annoying. i'll have to get the ceramic. any suggestions for the fly?

Starling can be harder to use than many other soft hackles, and you can use the thread and dubbing in the same way as the heril
They are looking good

Looks pretty darn good to me. I've never used Starling, but if it is harder to use, your flies should be darn near perfect after payday.

That is a great looking fly!

Since you used starling instead of partridge, wouldn't that make it a starling and orange?

Nice work, that will definitely catch trout! As others have said, you will find the partridge easier.

I'd say yes, it does.

I think partridge is a bit easier to use than starling, due to feather size. That said, if you're doing mostly 16's and 18's, starling may be easier due to needing less prep.
