The French Partridge flank feathers are well known components of a few Mayfly patterns, however the other plumage of this bird gives us much to play with. There are blue duns, subtle browns and olive coloured feathers, not to mention the variegated neck plumage, a very versatile bird for the fly tyer who develops there own patterns.
The speckled plumage of the red grouse has many uses for the soft hackle fan & the wings & tail form the basis for the grouse series of wets.
A complete Widgeon skin with perfect matching pair of wings and well marked barred flanks.
