Add this one to your collection Doobry.
This fly is just brilliant when the river is fining down after a flood - when it has that brownish/copper tinge colour to the water. Works all year round .Smaller sizes as the year progresses.

Body - Glowbrite #7 Floss
Rib - Gold Wire
Hackle- Black Hen

according yo malcolm greenhalgh book / phamplet spider guide its a winged spider
My apologies. Didn’t know that.

Out of curiosity, what makes it a winged spider rather than a wet fly? I always thought that what makes spider a spider is the lack of wing.

Another lesson learned

Cheers,
Sebastian

Thanks so much iain. Spiders were always a bit of a mystery to me. Was it imitative or just the movement that made them so successfully? The penny finally dropped when I saw the cripple "posed" like that.

You’re very welcome and glad it helped. Form what I can understand spiders were originally fished upstream too rather than the across and down more typically used today.
