Lough Arrow French Partridge
Weight: 0.010 Kgs
This is a beautiful wet mayfly dressing that I first tied for Lough Arrow in the early 1980's..I then supplied it to Christy Wynne's shop in Boyle Co. Roscommon.It is a slight variant on the pattern in E.J. Malone's book Irish Trout And Salmon Flies.It is similar to many early Lough Erne patterns which are heavily dressed and has a beautiful combination of movement and colour in the front partridge hackles.It remains one of the most beautiful and successful wet mayfly patterns fished today.
Brand:Frankie Mc Phillips
Wet Mayfly patterns are numerous and vary greatly in colour, some bearing little resemblance to the hatching natural fly. My selection includes some of the older classic patterns e.g. Lansdale and Lough Erne Gosling as well as modern flies with muddler heads and bodies of gold and pearl. Fished in teams of three on floating or intermediate lines they are all proven fish catchers during the Mayfly season and beyond.
