Love the look of the original fly, but don't have any French partridge so I subbed hen pheasant; a bit different look, but when in Rome....


hook - Dai Riki 300 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - pheasant tail
rib - x-small wire gold
body - Swiss Straw pale yellow
body hackle - saddle olive
collar - hen pheasant


Regards,
Scott

Now that is really nice. Beautiful fly.

I've had a Chuckar skin for about 5 years and never really gave it much thought; lightbulb finally went off. The feathers tend to run large so probably nothing smaller than a #10 but it's pretty close to the French.

That's really nice, Scott. Glad you made the connection.
