This might be upsetting to some, but I recently saw this Davie McPhail video and thought it to be an interesting twist to tying dry fly versions of some of the North Country Spiders.

Thank you for sharing the link. I am a huge fan of Davy McPhail’s And his YouTube channel. The guys ties a mean fly!

McPhail never phails to inspire another session at the bench. His techniques are really helpful, I note how he holds onto the tail as he ties it in, the constant re-spinning of the dubbing to keep it tight (or dropping the spin where he wants to thicken it up.)

Great job, NightWatchman! I bet that slays the fish.

Thanks Bocast. I watched that video by Davie and boy those flies looked buggy so I gave it a whirl and I have to say it does look like a killer.
