My mission is to carry the Project Healing Waters message to flyfishermen in all 50 states.
This is a second life for Polly the Partridge & Orange. This time it is a laminated business card with the tracking code displayed prominently on the face of the card and a message on the back. In the first life, this travel bug was a piece of paper inside a film canister, blue body, yellow top, attached to an actual TB. I launched Polly the first time in Sawtooth National Recreation Area in August 2010. It disappeared sometime in 2012 after having logged 1,454 miles and 52 posts. I pulled back the travel bug number and relaunched Polly in GC15RQB, A Cool Cache, in Melbourne, FL on 04 Apr 2014. I guess there is some slim chance that the original might show up.
The Partridge and Orange is an artificial fly commonly categorized as a wet fly or soft hackle and is fished under the water surface. The fly is a well known fly with its roots set firmly in English angling history. It is an impressionistic pattern fished successfully during caddis hatches and spinner falls. The Partridge and Orange is traditionally a trout and grayling pattern but may be used for other aquatic insect feeding species.
Polly is one of twelve characters created by artist Kirk Werner for three books designed to introduce children to fly fishing.
I have created a Trackable for each character. If you would like to see them all, here are the Geocaching Travel Bug Numbers: TB3E3X5, TB3E3Y2, TB3E3X7, TB3F6AD, TB3F69B, TB3F6AW, TB3F69V, TB3F69Z, TB3F6AV, TB3F6A3, TB3F6A5, TB3F6A0.
