Salt water Spiders
Say sparsely dressed again!
An oldie pattern from GFF Other Lab flies
The least dressed fly of all
It works in a stream so why shouldn't it work in the sea? My own fly The Umbrella is not that far from a spider, and that works. Even in very large sizes the spider has to be a dream to cast - light in all ways - and yet the soft hackle will have all the life you can want.
The appearence of this fly relies heavily on a nice, smooth tinsel body.
