1st one of 10dz, 119 more to go

My wife caught a cold, she's been sick since the weekend. Today she went back to work feeling alot better, but i woke up with it, was just a matter of time i guess. I took the day off from work, house to myself so i spent some time on the vise. Started by finishing off the adams order, a few size 16 and tied the 1 mosquito

Also very similar to a Gartside sparrow which is 100% pheasamt.

endrick spider

 

this fly could have come from the 1800's or early 1900's long before the "garden-variety soft-hackle PH" of today. fly tyers are known to change names of flies and call it a new pattern

i too have never heard of that name (doesnt really matter) and there was nothing in the book that gave any differentiation

from the authors book

THE ENDRICK SPIDER IS ANOTHER OLD WET-FLY PATTERN. From what I can tell, it is of Scottish origin, but that’s of no importance: it will catch trout everywhere. John Shaner tied this fine example of the dainty Endrick Spider. Actually, because of the peacock-herl thorax, maybe it’s one step larger than “dainty.” It seems like more of an imitation of a small-to-medium sized emerging mayfly nymph, or perhaps a caddisfly pupa. While we often think of using sparse wet flies and spiders as a form of fishing practiced only in the United Kingdom, nothing is further from the truth. Many knowledgeable North American anglers routinely use wet flies; the silhouette of an insect struggling to the surface often overcomes the instincts of the wariest trout. American authors such as James Leisenring and Sylvester Nemes wrote about wet flies, and Dave Hughes and others carry on the tradition. These simple flies catch trout, and even novice anglers can quickly learn to use them. They are also extremely easy to tie, and by changing hook sizes and colors of materials, you can fill a fly box full of fish-catching patterns. Wet flies have been around for almost 200 years, and they will continue to be the cornerstones of many fly boxes.

now we know its history or lack thereof

try a google search or shoot an email to klausmeyer for possibly more info

The Endrick Water or River Endrick is a river which flows into the eastern end of Loch Lomond, Scotland.

Its drainage basin covers a large part of the west of Stirling District. The Burnfoot Burn rising on the southern slopes of the Gargunnock Hills and the Backside Burn rising on the eastern slopes of the Fintry Hills combine to form the Endrick Water which flows south before turning sharply westwards at the foot of the western dam of Carron Valley Reservoir. The river flows through Strathendrick, the village of Fintry and past Balfron and Drymen before entering Loch Lomond.The Endrick Spider is a simple pattern but is a very popular fly with fishers...

Materials Used;

Hook, Fulling Mill All-Purpose Medium size 12

Thread, Uni-8/0 Dk.Brown or Black

Tail, Pheasant Tail Fibres

Rib, Small Copper Wire

Body, Cock Pheasant Tail Fibres

Hackle, Brown Partridge body Feather

gartside sparrow has a dubbed body. at least on jacks website

Tying the Gartside Sparrow (jackgartside.com)

 

Absolutely FT, or a body of after shaft with with wire i think is how he tied it.I think the dubbed body came when he started selling materials on his web siteI just meant your fly reminded me of the sparrow.Very few flies are new,at least the style they are tied is not new.His i believe special stuff or secret stuff which is an early ice dub type material is pretty cool.I bought some a few years ago and it was enough to fill a large zip lock bag for each color.I mean a lifetime supply for a ridiculously low price.I really liked the guys writings and his flies .I appreciate your renditions of historical flies.

Gray Buck

That's a pretty fly, I like the bands of color on the badger.

 

Is that from the tail or body hair with undefur removed?
