Salmon spiders/wets

The plan this season is to fish more with spiders and wets/wingless wets – I want to explore more than just dries for trout. With a large batch of spiders and wingless wets ready I set out to tie up some larger spiders/wingless wets to fish for salmon as well.

These are tied on #4 & #8 salmon hooks and are tied to target salmon, but will of course be with me as a part of any trout-fishing trips as well!

Keeping it simple and fishing activly with these should (hopefull) produce some results this summer, now we just need to wait for the summer to arrive here up north!

Hare’s Lug and Plover

I have been waiting for a Golden Plover skin for a very long time, but this week it finally arrived! The color and pattern on the head/neck of this bird really lends itself to a  spider pattern as this.

The small spiders and flymphs will get a section in the flybox this year for more active fishing.

Green Spider DR 305 #10
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Green
Body: Sheer 14/0 Green, Ultra Wire SM Gold
Collar: Green Guinea

I don’t have much experience with spider patterns, but I got a green guinea fowl skin the other day and wanted to test it out. This will most likely not be tested until spring when the ice is gone and trout waters/rivers again is fishable, but I will bring it with me in november when there still might be a chance for catching a trout after the spawning period is over in the rivers close to Oslo (this is a might-be-happening moment: in mid-november the snow can be quite deep around here!)
