Umpqua Sparring Partner
"The Sparring Partner was designed as a not so subtle, reaction style, baitfish (parr) imitation.
Built around the unbeatable swimming action of rabbit, the fly incorporates a two-tone flashy tail, with more flash in the body and lateral line.
A mallard flank collar adds a punch of color and unique mottling, and then the fly is finished off with a tightly spun rabbit fur head.
A very versatile fly and whether it’s fished fast or slow; horizontal or jigged it will definitely get the fishes attention."
