3 Plain porcupine quills with the tops rounded off, no whipping, nice simple but still very elegant.
The last few weeks I have been getting the fly boxes prepared for the new trout season and after buying some new fly tying skins from William in Ireland, a very reliable and excellent source for full bird skins at a very reasonable price. Anyone wishing his contact details please drop me a line.
I tied these couple of ghost spiders up using the neck feathers from a hooded crow.
Ghost spider ribbed with red wire, this fly accounted for a few Grayling on this weeks trip up the Dale. Fished as the first dropper in the fast water
The same spider but without the red wire rib also accounted for a couple of fish on the trip so I know they do catch Grayling its just a matter of time to see if the trout like them too.
