Here at Partridge HQ we have had some exciting developments on our Partridge PRO-team in the last month or so with the addition of some new members to our already bustling team.



In May Thomas Zullich, a German flyfisher and flytier joined the team from Norway and has been a brilliant contributor to the Partridge blog. If you have not been up to date with Thomas’s tips and fly tying step-by-steps, you can find a few by clicking the links below.

Thomas also gives fly tying classes as well as demonstrations at fly shows. You can follow the first instalment in his fly tying tutorials here. To find out more about Thomas and his fly dressing as well as his other passions you can do so by visiting his PRO-team profile.


More recently we have welcomed Greg Senyo, Ben Beckwith and  Xavier Courchinoux to the team. 


Greg Senyo is from Girard, Pennsylvania and the southern shores of Lake Erie. He has dedicated the past 20 years honing his fly fishing and tying techniques while fishing and guiding tributaries, most anglers today call Steelhead Alley.

Greg is also the owner and operator of Senyo’s Steelhead Alley Outfitters, which is an all inclusive educational fly fishing guide service on Lake Erie Tributaries. You could say that he is very active in this field.

One of our newest additions this month has been Ben Beckwith.

Ben, although only 14, has been tying since he was 11 and he is currently the youngest member of the Partridge PRO-team. He has been placed 3rd in the 2014 England Youth National Championships and as such has qualified for the 2015 England Youth Fly-Fishing team.

Finally we have welcomed Xavier Courchinoux to the Partridge PRO-team. Xavier is from Brittany, France and has both a blog and YouTube channel where you can read his posts and watch his latest fly tying videos. 

Xavier is a very passionate fly fisherman and his speciality is that of flies to catch Pike.
