We started raising quail with the intent of strictly food. It didn't take long for the wheels in our head to start turning. We hadn't seen a market for quail before and that made us very interested as to what these quail were capeable of. After tying with them, We knew we had something special.
Quail have been a great alternative for partridge, in our opinon.....it's better. We have a wide color selection and feather quality that partridge can't compete with.
This fly has palmered natural white quail feathers up the shank of the hook making this pattern a force to be reckoned with.
