the yarn spider makes 'em crazy!

I spent a few hours on the little kentish chalk stream down the road yesterday evening... good hatch of Danica...

but I didn't fish Danica patterns, I tied on a size 16 yarn spider with olive legs and black yarn "body" at the car before really looking at the water's surface. I only changed flies once (to replace the one I hung in a tree with an exact replica). the fish loved it, 4 browns and a few fat roach all came to the dry like missiles.

i love the yarn spider... tying more tonight!
