More Spiders, Orange Silk and A Dish That's Simply Everything
While fumbling around the internet I came upon a book that grabbed my interest. I had never seen anything written about this book which I thought to be strange. But looking further I found a copy of it and it sounded interesting and the price was right so I purchased it.
The book named "Year of the Spider" by Phillip Storey puts a different slant on the North Country Fly. The book is a journal and tells of the anglers use of the spiders over the year. It also shows a different look of these spiders as tied by him. Maybe not a classic I still found it to be another look at these wonderful simple flies.
As you can see the flies look somewhat different than the North Country Spiders we commonly see.
The "Snipe Bloa" as tied from the book. The hackle is quite long and swept back. I'll give the fly a run and see what happens.
Have you tried getting YLI orange silk?
Mushroom Risotto....this is a dish you just have to try.
