March Brown Spider

The March Brown Spider is a great traditional northen spider. A hackled version of a fly that is found in so many books on North Country flies, though the fly itself i.e. the March Brown, is no longer common in the north, Whatever the artificial represents, the fly works really well, both winged and hackled, particularly – as the name would suggest – during the early part of the season.

For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the March Brown Spider. Remember at The Essential Fly we sell the March Brown Spider at incredible prices with a top quality fly and service to back it up. It is certainly worth tying the March Brown Spider yourself to understand the pleasure of catching a fish with your own tied fly, however at the price we sell flies it is only worth tying one or two March Brown Spider as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.

Critical to tying spiders is the sparseness of the hackles. You should not have more than 2 turns of hackle on a northern spider. Less is more!
