Pattegrisen (the Pink Pig) – fly tying – video

This is my my take on Pattegrisen, probably the most popular and famous Danish saltwater fly ever. It was developed by Claus Eriksen back in 2006 – with some inspiration from Morten Oland’s Spey Shrimp. It’s a killer for sea trout. The fly is tied on an Ahrex NS150 hook. Claus was actually part of […]

Amber Softhackle Streamer – salmon and steelhead fly tying – video

Where the river meets the sea

– productive brackish water environments If you follow a river downstream, sooner or later you will reach the sea. But lots of rivers don’t enter the big salty oceans right away. More often they feed lots of freshwater into deltas, fjords, estuary or other waterscapes. These environments typically contain brackish water, and their salt content […]

Nightwatchman – Pike fly tying – video

The Nightwatchman is my own pattern, and a personal favourite for fishing in low light conditions: Dusk, dawn, nighttime and days with dark skies, rain and thunder. This version is tied mostly for pike and other large predators, but it is great streamer for trout as well. When the Nightwatchman is doing its rounds… things […]

Yellow Monster Bugger – articulated streamer fly tying – video

Lean, mean and with a color that make big trout go bananas :0) Slimline articulated streamer fly, that makes a good alternative to the more compact sculpin style articulated streamers. It’s an easy tie, the materials are cheap and it’s a killer (even though we probably release most of the fish anyway ;0) Yellow Monster […]

Bacon Snack – articulated streamer fly tying – video

  My take on a large articulated streamer fly. It’s a Zonker style tie using muskrat fur strips for the wing, and Woolly Sparkle Dub for the head/shoulder build up. Has proven super effective for most predators – especially for brown trout and sea run brown.   Bacon Snack Rear hook: Ahrex NS122 Light Stinger […]
