Partridge and Orange

I was reading about some Old English traditional flies and this one caught my eye. I bought some partridge a few weeks back because it was half off and I hadn't touched it so I gave it a go. I tied one on a dry fly hook, and one on an emerger hook.

This is the first time I've ever tied a soft hackle wet fly. I don't think they turned out too bad. The traditional does not call for the gold ribbing, but I thought it was a nice touch.

I wonder what this guy would have to say about breaking the tradition..
