Partridge and Orange

The earliest angling literature about this fly starts in 1496; The Treatise of Fishing with an Angle by Dame Juliana Berners.  This fly has truly withstood the test of time and remains a very popular pattern today.  It is deceptively simple and yet if presented correctly it can make the most stubborn fish fall.
