A North Country Spider, the Dalesman. It is in keeping with the tradition of those sparse wonderful flies of Yorkshire. A silk body, Pearsall's Claret, natural mole thorax, and a grouse hackle.
Named for the legendary fly fisher and tyer James Leisenring of Pennsylvania. I think that we can thank Jim and is friend Pete Hidy for giving us the wet fly and flymph. Well wet flies have been around long before these gents, but their way of constructing them and fishing them have helped so many of us.
