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 […]

Recently I got hold of a bunch of Whiting Soft Hackle with Chickabou patches – more precise the Coq De Leon hen saddles. All of these had markings resembling the partridge body hackles – and some were dyed in subdued pastel colours. I immediately saw the possibilities for making some beautiful soft hackle spider wet […]

I’m using the Ahrex Deep Streamer, which is perfect for these saltwater streamers… and kind of classy looking as well. Hope you guys like it :0) Woolhead Sculpin  […]

P & S Shrimp – fly tying – video

A shrimp pattern that I made for sea trout fishing in saltwater and brackish water estuaries in Scandinavia. P & S Shrimp stands for Plain & Simple Shrimp, since this fly is pretty easy to tie – and super effective. I use several different hooks models for this one: short shank as well as long […]

Study of a shrimp

We’ll it seems like most Scandinavian fly tiers wanna tie shrimps these days. And for fishing the brackish waters and the salt for sea trout… shrimp flies very often are second to none. Even though we have a long tradition for tying shrimp flies, the craze took a major leap, when the very competent Danish […]
