And then I thought, why not just showcase these flies as the Fly of the Week. The first few patterns are a little simplistic, but in the next few weeks the complexity is going to get ratcheted up.
So here is the first fly, the venerable Partridge and Orange.
Partridge and Orange
Hook: this is a 14, but I prefer them a little smaller, say 16-20. I tied it larger for the picture.
Thread: 6/0 orange thread
Thorax: Maroon synthetic dubbing.
