This is my first time tying on the Partridge Mikael Frodin hook. Since the designer is a Swede, I used a wing from that pair of feathers off one of my Swedish Black ducks.

This is the size 3 Partridge CS14/1B (mouthful)


There's an underwing of squirrel to help hold the goose up some.

Fun hook to tie on, pretty short shank really. Seemed to want to either be a big wing or something fast.

Happy Holidays

The wing is superb, but I really like the contrast of the yellow throat against the body hackle. Well played.

Great looking tie, Matt! Love the colors.
Those quills are great. I wonder if Black ducks on this side of the pond have the same feathers?

who knows, the ducks i keep are a heritage breed called swedish black. they lay and are good for eating, so they make a great farm bird. they also can't fly. they are not all black, but mottled.

best
