French Partridge is an extremely versatile fly tying material – whether for tying large wet flies, sea trout or salmon flies. Due to their colour gradient and dark tips, these feathers provide your flies with a very special appearance and lots of contrast, and therefore they will easily convince critical viewers above and beneath the surface. Since they have a thin stem, they are great for hackling, which will make their fibres move in a very temping way. Additionally, their fibres are perfect for imitating the wings of all kinds of flies – whether nymphs, wet or dry flies.
Whether used as hackle of a wet fly, wing of an emerger or mouth parts of a shrimp: Veniard French Partridge is a great choice for almost every fly tying desk!
