Pearow's Bentback Spider

Hook:  Mustad 3261 (Size 8)
Thread:  6/0 Uni
Body:  Brown Yarn or Micro Chenille
Legs:  Sili-Legs
Wing:  Buck tail
Head:  Thread

Here is one I found from Pearow on The Bass Pond.  Pearow caught some big bluegills on this spider, but I could easily see bass hammering it too.

The key is to bend a 15 degree angle in the shank.  Any more than 15 degrees and the spider will spin on the retrieve.  This is a very simple pattern that is just fantastic.  The hook rides up making this spider snag resistant.

Notice the bend in the bottom hook....slight bend is all you need.
