Mayfly : PQ Spent Spinner
100519_1 (1).jpg

Spent Spinners often appear from the beginning of July and through the summer. When the mayflies have finished mating, they have done their duty and falls dead in the river. This can give very good fishing. 

This pattern is ment to stand out from the crowd, you know - when you are one of a million. Therefor the fluoro red body

Hook : Ahrex FW502 Dry Fly Light #12-16

Thread : Semperfli Nanosilk 18/0, White

Tail : Fibetts, Light Dun (4 pcs)

Under Body : Semperfli Classic Waxed Thread 8/0, Fluoro Red

Body : Semperfli Perfect Quills

Wing : Sparkle Organza, White

Upper Wing : Cdc, White

Thorax : Superfine Dubbing, Claret

It is easiest (I believe) to attach the fibetts, and then build up the body before tying on the wing, but this is up to you and what you like. The small white cdc feathers as upperwing, will help the fly floating, and it will be more easy to see the fly in the river
