One of the first reference to using English Partridge Full Skin is found in Berners book (1496) who cites a "dun fly, the body of dun wool and the wings of the partridge". The use of partridge feathers to tie wet flies is also cited by Franck (1658), Bowlker (1754), Humphrey (1832), Taverner, Bainbridge (1936), Blacker (1855) and Ogden (1879). Feathers from the back of the bird are best for hackles, the tail feathers can be used for wings.

English Partridge Full Skin feathers can be used to tie the legendary North Country Flies as Partridge and Orange, Partridge and Silver, Partridge and Yellow, Partridge Brown, Green Partridge, Crimson Partridge, Orl Fly, March Brown Spider, Welsh Partridge, Grey Watchet, Knop Fly. Don't forget the quintessential soft hackle patterns either.
