Tarantula salmon fly

This is one of my own patterns,
It is a large spider pattern designed for salmon.
It uses a stiff underwing to give support to the mobile hackle materials.
The fly has a holograpgic silver body which glints enticingly from under the hackles.
This fly swims and pulses in the water when a little movement is imparted to your line.
Ideal for clear or low water when fish are wary of big bright flies.
Available here on the Salmon Fly blog, dressed on any size of hook. (
