Waterwolf Dry

A floating pattern imitating Pirata africana. This spider is very common in the Fynbos biome along streams and is adept to walking swiftly over the water. I developed this pattern with prime floatation in mind and is almost entirely made with Larvalace foam. It has Pheasant tail fibres for legs and a dubbed CDC underbody. Tied in reverse the egg sac makes a highly visible sighter. The pattern has proved very succesful even on days when the trout have not been co-operative with other dry patterns, the wide silhouette it casts being the plus fdactor here. Tied #12 down to #16.
