  1. Hi search you tube for chez nymphs these patterns are designed for Euro nymphing they are tied on heavy wire curved nymph hook's hope this helps Kind regards Steve
  2. hi regarding hackles for north counrty spiders it depends on which one you are talking about the simple answer to your question is to get Rodger Foggs (book) North Country Spiders I have this book and it's very good north country spiders are basically sparsely dressed wet flies the right way to dress them the body is half the hook length and hackles range from partridge breast feathers to snipe = snipr & purple, partridge = partridge & orange this will give you a starting point but the book would be more helpful hope this is of some use to you kind regards Steve
  3. If your fly fishing for pike try pike trek.com dubbing brushes are not a lot of use for lures as they don't provide the life like movement that long fibres produce a better action I have been tying my own pike flies for four years and have tried a lot of combinations and dubbing brush doesn't create movement like longer fibres hope this helps Steve Sparkie

Haley if that's a first attempt you have done very well you need to work on the taper of the body and slightly build up the head of the of the lava keep going practice the taper of the body and thorax as these type of flies are not easy with practice of different fly patterns lots of luck with your future tying enjoy it Steve Sparkie
