3. McFly: Hi-vis Spiders

Click the image to open in full size.

the recipe for my spider is
1..Select a strip of closed cell foam about a quarter inch wide and a bout a inch and half long. tie down to the hook covering about 3/4 of the hook shank. Move the thread back to the starting point.

2.Tie in peacock herl and wrap up the hook shank.

3. Pull the foam forward over the shank of the hook to create a humped back. Secure to the hook at the same point you started tying the foam down.

3. Pull the foam back over the hook and secure to the starting point. Trim the foam to leave a slight tag end extending over part of the humped back.

4. If desired for visibility, tie in a small bunch of bright foam or yarn on top of the fly at the same point the front or head of the fly is tied down. trim short.

5.Tie in a pair of rubber legs on each side of the hook as shown. If you need to, straighten the legs out before you cinch the thread tight.

6.Clip the legs to be even on both sides of the fly and cement your whip knot.



4. Greenwood...Ant
