    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    I am gonna tie the ones I can. I cannot afford to be buying new materials, but can substitute where possible. I am looking forward to seeing the recipes.
    As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!

    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
    c. Legs/Antennae: Hungarian Partridge hackle, brown or gray, or equivalent
    d. Thorax: Dubbing (optional)

    g. Cheeks: Jungle cock nail


    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.

    Thank you Allan. I think I have just about everything except some of the hen hackle colors. This looks like a great bunch of flies. I am looking forward to doing them.
