Old Master

Pritt's No.39 Old Master
Watch the tying of a classic North Country Spider, featuring the No.39 Old Master from T.E. Pritt’s classic book North Country Flies. Learn about the many anomalies that surround this north country spider pattern. And how Pritt’s stated dressing of this pattern is at odds with his own illustration contained with his publication and gives us a perfect example of how many of Pritt’s north country fly dressing become mixed up and confused. This north country spider fly is dressed by Robert L Smith featuring authentic and vintage flytying materials.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
