Paul Proc­ter’s guide to fish­ing Spi­ders

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Contents -

IN its truest sense, fish­ing Spi­ders in­volves pitch­ing a team of three sparsely-dressed wet flies a short way up­stream in bro­ken wa­ter. These are then guided back to­wards you in a nat­u­ral man­ner, to tempt trout. Be­cause three flies are typ­i­cally used, in essence, you’re mak­ing an ef­fec­tive blan­ket sweep of a pool. Of course, where ris­ing fish are en­coun­tered, these should be cov­ered ac­cord­ingly. Given this then, some frown at those who fish wet flies down­stream, or don’t use a full com­ple­ment of three flies. How­ever, as we’ll see, with a lit­tle thought, Spi­ders can be served up in a lot more ways than tra­di­tion dic­tates.
