Big Orange Partridge Hackle
The Lunn’s Big Orange Partridge Hackle invented in 1923. Partridge Hackles were an old north country fly first mentioned in 1496 in the earliest list of flies in English. Lunn’s version kills floating, or awash, or sunk and John Waller Hills considered it the best under-water fly at Stockbridge, better than any other sunk fly or nymph. He remarked that it was:
invaluable in all weathers but especially potent when you have risen but not pricked a fish on some imitation of the olive.
