Winter Brown North Country Spider

The Winter Brown is a great traditional northen spider.

This is a slightly fuller version of the Edmunds and Lee fly.Mike Harding has bulked out the thorax to make it look more like the heptagenia which he believe's it is supposed to represent (amongst other things). Pritt’s version has no
thorax, just a simple thread bodyMkike says that he finds it easier to tie the herl head in, once my thread is locked in position. He then tie's in the hackle and wind down to the hook bend. I bring the thread back up leaving 4 or 5 touching
turns of silk as a tag, add enough dubbing to make the thorax then tie off. The Winter Brown can be a deadly fly, particularly early in the season

Use The Winter Brown To Catch:

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