This pattern works well to imitate pale wateries, spurwings and pale coloured olives. Mostly useful in April, May, June and July. It will take trout feeding on the above mentioned flies that are emerging or are returning to the water to lay their eggs.
This fly imitates the Red Spinner which is the female spinner of the large dark olive who returns to the river to lay her eggs in the evening. A very useful fly for May, June and early July.
Size 18 Black North Country Spider.
Very useful for mid season and during the day in the summer months.
Often trout selectively feed on small black midges and terrestrials. And when they are this is a great pattern to use.
Trout will often take this when there’s very few flies around too.
It’s also a very good fly for Rudd, Dace and other coarse fish.
