Waterwolf (Sunken)

The Pirata africana, Water wolf Spider is very common along the banks and on boulders in the streams of the Western Cape. The Waterwolf was designed as a Sunken spider pattern purely for the reason that this species can dive under water and remain submerged for up to an hour, shrouded in a blanket of air. The CDC abdomen traps a layer of air around it but the heavy underbody and bead gets the pattern down. Tied #12 down to #16.
