Heritage Range

The Essential Fly Heritage Range - Tied with silk as the genuine old flies were tied!


Greenwell's Spider North Country - Heritage Range

The Greenwell's Spider is a great traditional northen fly. Another great fly from Mike Harding's book on Northern Spider Patterns. The Greenwell's Spider is a gerneral purpoose olive iimitation, either a dun or a nymph. This is a very important artificial fly world-wide.

The Greenwell's spider uses soft Greenwell hen hackle to make a spider version of this old favourite first designed by Canon Greenwell. The thread should be waxed with dark cobbler's wax until it becomes olive. This is one of Mike's favourite flies for late summer when the river is low and the evenings long. Mike will fish this together with a hackled version of Whyckham's Fancy

Use The Greenwell's Spider To Catch:


The Greenwell's Spider can be used to catch Rainbow Trout

The Greenwell's Spider can be used to catch Brown Trout

The Greenwell's Spider can be used to catch Grayling

Our Mike Harding Range of Northern Fly patterns are tied to the traditional patterns. The flies are all designed from Mike's excellent book on Northern Spider patterns. Check it out, it is really good!

Greenwell's Spider - Fly Tying Dressing

For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Greenwell's Spider. Remember at The Essential Fly we sell the Greenwell's Spider at incredible prices with a top quality fly and service to back it up. It is certainly worth tying the Greenwell's 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 Greenwell's Spider as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.

Perfect for Yorkshire Rivers
Sunday, 10 April 2011  | 

The "Heritage" range of Trout Flys are superbly tied and I have no hesitation in recommending them for our Yorkshire Rivers, specifically, Wharfe and Swale. Congratulations on excellent work.

Greenwells Spider
Friday, 1 April 2011  | 

Not criticism, but when I tie spiders I like to use a slightly heavier hook to get it sub surface quicker
