Bill Edson’s Light-, and Dark Tiger

Ever since I got hold of the wonderful book Streamers and Bucktails by Joseph D. Bates sometimes back in the 1980’s… I’ve been in love with Bill Edson’s flies. I wanted to tie the flashy Light Tiger and the more discrete golden brown Dark Tiger. But I didn’t have the right fly tying material – […]

Fashion changes – but style endures

Hooks are the backbones of most artificial flies, and we fly tiers tend to get kind of emotional about this particular piece of steel. Sure… we choose hooks out of practical purposes.

Soldier Palmer – fly tying – video

Cool looking and super simple wet fly. Besides… this is a variation of one of the oldest flies known, the Red Palmer – which is mentioned by Izaak Walton (1653) and maybe even Dame Juliana Berners (1496). Anyway… trout still love it! Soldier Palmer Hook: Wetfly # 6 – 14 Tread: Black or red Tail: […]

Bead heads and glass heads

Opening of trout season is just a week away now – so I feel the usual heat of cabin fever. To dampen the worst symptoms I am tying flies and making a lot of new fly tying films for my YouTube channel. The last couple of days a bunch of bead head nymphs has been […]
