Poult Bloa North Country Spider
The Poult Bloa is a great traditional northen spider. Anorth great fly from Mike Harding's book on Northern Spider Patterns.
The “poult” refers to the feather, which in this case comes from the blue undercovert feathers of a young grouse wing. Edmunds and Lee insist that only a young grouse feather will do because it has the right shade of light slate blue. Ednunds and Lee also insist that all tying thread used in their flies is waxed. This is perhaps because, in their day, the silk then was not as tough as it is now and the wax helped to strengthen it. In the example here Mike Harding has waxed the thread very lightly so as to preserve the colour.
