    Purple and Partridge Softy tutorial.

    The purple and partridge. Its a very simple spider.


    Materials-
    Hook- a dry or wet fly hook
    Thread- Purple pearsalls gossamer silk thread.
    Rib- Copper wire.
    Abdomen- Thread
    Thorax- J.Us H.S.U.V. High test blend
    Hackle- Partridge, darker back feather.


    Start your thread about two hook eyes back from the eye.


    Tie your wire in and wrap back to the point. Nice touching turns all the way down.


    Bring your thread back up. Nice touching turns.


    Rib it, tie it off.


    Dub yourself a thorax. Dont go big, keep it proportional.


    Prepare your partridge feather. You want tips of about the same length. Tie it in by the tip, with the good side of the feather facing yourself. Clip the tip out of way. Then fold the partridge fibers back, stroke them nice and gently.


    Then wrap the hackle. One turn right in front of the other. Tie it off and clip the stem.


    Whip yourself a nice neat head. You now have a beautiful soft hackle spider.
