Hi all...  I'm gonna attempt to tie an Olive Peeking Caddis fly, which is calling for Brown Partridge Fibers, Beard Style for the legs.  In my two years of fly tying, I have never heard of Beard Style...  I have a full body English Partridge which I got from Chookshill Fly Tying, so I think I have the needed materials, just don't know what to pick off of it.  Would appreciate any help on decoding this.. :-}

Partridge usually means feathers taken from the European   Partridge , which you have.

 

If you look at the fly in your link you will see a clump of feather fibers tied in near the hook eye on the underside (gape side) that resemble a beard. That is it; strip a few fibers from the stem of a partridge feather and tie them under the hook. This is sometimes called the throat.

An ostrich’s eye is bigger than it’s brain. I happen to know some people that have the same thing.

A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. Somedays i feel the same way

A "grammatical pedantry syndrome" is a form of OCD in which suffers feel the need to correct every grammatical error that they see. Guess who?

B&N not available, and I saw the 1st one but not much info was available so I couldn't tell if it was a CD-ROM with a digital version of the book or the actual book. I tried the ebook thing and it's just not for me.

 Here's a used hardcover that's supposedly in good shape for $58.50 plus $3.99 shipping. It's a great book that I go to all the time.

 

Regards,

                 Mark
