Partridge and Yellow Variation

Partridge and Yellow Variation

Catch Modern Fish with a Classic Fly The Partridge and Yellow has been tyed for about infinity years and it still catches fish to this day.  Originally tied with silk floss, there are many other more modern materials that can be used to make the body of this fly - in this case I used Uni 3/0 thread, and a bit of flash in the thorax really is a nice way to add subtle flash.  The beauty of this pattern is that it can be tied in many different variations that can be as minimal or gnarly as you want them. For me, the key to a good looking partridge soft hackle is a good full partridge skin.  If you buy the bagged stuff, you might end up with a dozen usable feathers in a broad range of sizes, but none of the size you need.  Anyway, this video is very simple and straightforward, so there is no need to ramble on! ~ Cheech Material List Add to Cart   View in store Hook : Daiichi 1120 - Heavy Wire Scud Hook - 14       Thread : 8/0 UNI-Thread Waxed Midge - Camel

Lion's Mane Soft Hackle

Lion's Mane Soft Hackle

Heavy. Stealthy. Flowey. Lion's Mane Soft Hackles I've had some pretty awesome days over the years fishing soft hackles of different sorts on lakes and streams alike. Between the free-moving hackle fibers to the general buggy look they have, soft hackles are just flat-out deadly. Still I think I probably don't fish them enough. Considering you can tie stonefly patterns to midges and everything in between, soft hackles are an often-overlooked style of pattern that really needs a spot in your boxes. The Lion's Mane was born out of a need to get down deeper and quicker in some faster moving pocket water but still maintain good material movement. Although it's tied a bit on the bigger side, you can definitely scale this down to fit whatever size you need to. And it's also suited to be tied in different colors and even different materials.

Dubbing Loop Sculpin

Dubbing Loop Sculpin

Cuz Scuplin Don't Suck I have a strange obsession with sculpin, but not as much as trout do. I've never tasted a sculpin, but with the way trout eat them, I'm guessing its probably a flavor explosion similar to that of a perfectly executed Ribeye WITH rosemary butter. #realtalk, sculpin patterns are in my top three flies when I go chasing trout. A lot of the time they are the ticket to bring some big fish to hand. When tying sculpin patterns I believe in 3 key factors: A broad head, Gills and the ability to fish very near to the bottom of the river. These 3 focuses help this pattern come to light. "Belly-Scratcher" weighting is the key to being able to slither this fly over the bottom and keep the hook point off of as many rocks as possible. Lastly, I think mixing dubbing is super under utilized in the fly tying game. On this pattern, to get the color I wanted, I blended 3 types of Bruiser Blend (Brown, Olive Brown and Tan). Blending dubbing can yield some
