tied by Classic tier
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Please note that the partridge mayfly is simply a template. Many different variations originate
from this template.
Hook; size 8.
Tail; four or five cock pheasant tail fibres.
Body; claret seal's fur.
Rib; oval gold tinsel.
Hackle; ginger cock behind natural french partridge.
Tying Instructions: 1. Tie in the tail, making sure it is 2-3 times the length of the hook shank.
2. Next comes the rib.
3. Dub on a generous pinch of the seal's fur, making sure it tapers.
4. Wind 4-5 turns of the rib and secure.
5. Tie in the cock hackle and wind 4 turns.
6. Attach the french partridge and add a small amount of varnish, wind two turnswhilst the varnish is sticky. The more the fibres splay out, the better, as this gives the fly 'kick' in the water.
7. Form a head and varnish.
8. Fish with.
Presentation Tips: Fish by dabbling. Make a 9ft leader. Add three flies spaced three feet apart on a floating line. Put the partridge mayfly on the top dropper. Cast out 10ft from a drfiting boat. Insted of retrieving lift the rod so the top dropper dibbles in the surface film. Repeat.
