For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Waterhen Bloa Spider.

It is certainly worth tying the Waterhen Bloa 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 Waterhen Bloa Spider as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.

Hook Sizes

12 to 16


Pale yellow silk, thread very lightly dubbed ideally with mole fur so the colour of the thread shines through the dubbing.


Gun metal grey waterhen / moorhen feather

In Mike Harding's book on Northen spiders there is a delightful quote: "The mole fur must be dubbed, according to Malcolm Greenhalgh, very lightly, “as light as your mother-in-law’s beard.”

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!
