    Dear Scotfly

    Thanks for this step-by-step. I've had problems with the durability of my Endrick Spiders, but having looked at your method I can see where I have gone wrong !

    a very good friend of mine is the originator of this great fly, mr john harwood of milton of campsie.and you would be surprised to know that this fly is also a great taker of sea trout and salmon in a size 8.

    Yea jim i saw a lad getting a salmon on one about 10 years ago on the gryffe
    size 8 fishing it as a dropper above his shrimp fly also used to do well with this fly around august fishing through the night for brownies

    ps paul it is successful some of us having been using it for 10 years or more
    it was in i think the trout fisherman or trout and salmon one month as a readers fly around 1994/96

    There is always a risk, of course, that such a fly, particularly if dressed on a size 8 hook with several layers of heavy copper wire as an underbody, fished on a late summer night over sea trout shoaling in the small holding pools of a drought stricken Endrick, might inadvertently hook fish in places other than the mouth, especially if fished on a sinking line.
