March brown Spider




Spider wet flies are not a fly that is designed to imitate a specific insect although size and colour can be vaguely matched. Spiders give a general impression of food, which is often enough!
They are fished in or just under the surface film of the river and there are a few different methods of fishing the Spider, my favourite is the upstream method. The upstream method involves wading in the river facing upstream and casting with around a rod length of fly line and around a rod length of leader. The fly is only on the water for a few seconds and as it travels down the current back towards you. The rod is lifted to take up the slack line before the fly is recast. Often a wading stick is in the other hand as the angler prospects up the stream exploring the runs and riffles. Light gear is required as there is lots of Casting but the takes are fast and furious as the fish snatched the fly from the current.
