How to Tie a Peacock and Partridge

Producer: Tim Flagler

Says tier and videographer Tim Flagler: “The Peacock and Partridge is a fly pattern that’s older than dirt yet still remarkably effective. Using just a few materials, it’s easy to tie and it could represent a whole slew of aquatic insects in various stages of life, anything from a cased caddis to a crippled mayfly dun. I do prefer to add a couple of modern upgrades like a fluorescent tag and a slick-looking hook.”
