Sandy DicksonSandy Dickson has done it again. Using the special techniques for tying his buzzers Sandy has developed a range of spider flies, with hot spots designed for usage at different times of day and to maximise benefit from the light conditions.

These spiders are really hot! Use them as we do as traditional Yorkshire Spiders / Northern Spiders ...... well we are in Yorkshire or anywhere around the world in rivers. These well tied spiders with the hot spots are excellent fish catches, brownies really like these flies.


Fishing the Blank Buster Spiders

Probably the most common way to fish Blank Buster Spiders is to cast them across and slightly downstream, letting it sink and then swing in the current, rising with the tightening line much as a natural rises to the surface before hatching. It's on this rise that fish usually strike. Another productive method is to cast the fly upstream on a short cast and then let it dead-drift back to you just under the surface (or in the surface film). On lakes and ponds a soft hackle fly cast in front of a cruising trout and then twitched slightly can be absolutely deadly. Many soft-hackle fly anglers, especially in Europe, favor fishing two or three of these flies (of different colors and sizes) at a time. An ideal rig is to use difference size Blank Buster Spiders reducing in size from the point to top dropper in a string of 3 flies or even 4 flies on deeper waters with long leaders.

i just love this super fine silk thread.. Any thread will do to cover the hook shank but this is the tread that really gives strength to the fly
