Typical North Country Spider Leader Setup

we’ve seen quite a bit on North Country Spider patterns and fishing techniques and here, thanks to Stephen Cheetham of Fishing with Style we get some greatly detailed  info and tips on general leaders setups for this method, with and without droppers.

a strong hunch tells me the knot above comes from commercial fishing, most probably used for ‘long-lining’ but it’s just the ticket for these leader setups and also a good one for dry & nymph rigs, particularly when using Reversed-Parchute  as the dropper cannot be attached on the hook bend. good stuff indeed, thanks Stephan !
