Leisenring Spider

tied by Soft-hackle
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Trout,
Material List:
Leisenring Spider

Hook: Standard wet fly 12-16

Thread: Yellow

Hackle: Brown Partridge

Ribbing: Fine gold wire

Body: Hares ear spun on yellow thread, Leisenring style

Tying Instructions: Very easy to do. Strip off one side of the hackle and tie onto hook either by the tip or stem so it sits on the shank, out over the eye. Wrap the thread down the shank and tie on the gold wire. Attech the dubbing brush and wrap the tying thread back down the shank to behind the hackle. Wrap the body; tie down; trim excess. Rib the body with the gold wire; tie down and trim excess. Wrap the hackle so the fibers curve backwards; tie off, and trim. While holding the hackles in a back-swept position with the thumb and forefinger of the non tying hand, slightly overwrap the hackle to hold it in position. Finish the head, whip finish and add cement.
Presentation Tips: This fly is excellent for imitating caddis and matflies. It can be fished as a standard wet fly or nymph, using the Leisenring lift or in the surface or just below, upstream or down.
