Back home again

Ulla and I are back, after 3 weeks road-tripping Northern Scandinavia. We were offline most of the time. Partly out of necessity since internet coverage was pretty lousy, but also because it felt right. Sweden was burning hot, literally – with forest fires going on and firefighters trying to control the chaos. With helicopters transporting […]

Chartreuse Salamander Jig – hair jig tying

I’m have no idea if the fish takes this fly for being a salamander. Point is, though. They do. Pike and large predatory trout so far. Check out the video to see this jig swim under water. The action is unreal :0) Share

Muddler Jig – hair jig tying

Crossover from muddler fly to jig. Basically a mashup between a Woolly Bugger, a muddler minnow and a jighead. I started tying these on really small and light jigheads weighing 1 – 3 grams (1/28 to 3/28 oz). But now I tie the Muddler jig on heavier heads as well, to be able to use […]

The Classic Bucktail jig – hair jig tying

Nothing really beats the Bucktail Jig for classic vibe and pure fish catching effectiveness. The flow of natural bucktail will lure fish year round.
