    Spiders are not terribly difficult to tie and are very productive, especially on a small river. Don't need a huge amount of materials to be able to tie 1/2 a dozen diff flies. Once you can tie one right the rest are all the same .

    Agree with Christy. Spiders are very versatile.

    Here's a link to a starter video.

    I was taught to tye the Black and peacock wet fly in the 70s.
    The B/P is fairly easy to tye and is a classic fly that represents most black food forms on rivers and stillwaters.
    Roger Foggs book The Art of the Wet Fly is the best book i have read on Wet fly fishing and he has just brought out a new book which is very good for tying wet fly patterns and how to fish them.
