Pritt's No.16 Red Clock

Watch the tying of a classic North Country Spider, featuring the No.16 Red Clock from Pritt’s classic book North Country Flies. Pritt’s stated dressing of this pattern is at odds with his own illustration contained with his publication, and gives us an perfect example of how north country fly dressing become mixed-up and confused over time.
This north country spider fly is dressed by Robert L Smith featuring authentic and vintage flytying materials.

No.16 Red Clock
Hook: Size 12 Partridge SUD2
Body: Vintage Hot Orange Pearsall’s Silk
Thorax: Peacock Herl

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.
