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 nothorax, 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

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!
Tied as part of our Heritage Range these flies are tied with real silk and the best quality materials - just as these flies should be . We love these flies, they look great and most importantly these flies catch fish!
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.
