How to Tie a Spent Partridge Caddis

September 8, 2013 By: Marshall Cutchin

The Spent Partridge Caddis is the pattern featured in this week’s fly tying video.  Fly tier, blogger and author Matt Grobert ties this one on a size 16 dry fly hook, showing how to construct the underwing with Zelon and the overwing with Hungarian Partridge feathers.  This fly’s fuzzy thorax–made with Hare’s Ear dubbing–both helps the fly to float and gives it a super-buggy appearance.
