Orange Wet Fly

leave a comment »

The variations I prefer on the small wet fly (spider) is a full body with complimentary colours then with a heavy hackle. Often, as shown below, I like to use Ostrich re-enforce with a rib.  In the two pictures, I have used Yellow and Orange Ostrich, and then there is Orange Ostrich with Yellow Seal.

Other notes:

  • Using a heavy Hook – Mustad R90
  • Though I usually preferably a flat thread, such as Danville, this was Gordn Griffith’s (use up what I have).
  • Copper Rib
  • Hackle courtesy of a local grouse, shoulder.
