A Soft Dog on my trail

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 […]

Sculpin Helmet flies – swimming under water – video

The Tube fly is tied on Pro Sportfisher’s Flexitube. The three sculpins are tied with the hook pointing up, […]

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 […]

Loopy Leech – fly tying – video

Not really rocket science – but the dubbing loop technique give a lot of options for mixing colours, structures and materials. I use Woolly Sparkle Dub, which is a natural wool dubbing with some subtle sparkle in it. You […]

Amber Fish Skull Bucktail – fly tying – video

Amber and rusty coloured baitfish imitation, that has got a jigging nosediving action thanks to the fish skull. This one is tied on an Ahrex saltwater hook, but the fly is equally efficient in freshwater. I use it for brown trout, sea trout (sea run brown), sea bass – and perch and pike. Amber Fish […]

Shades of Green – fly tying – video

My own pattern inspired by the fabulous Woolly Bugger and Scandinavian sea trout flies like the Magnus. The name… well it is pretty green and at first i just called it “the green fly.” But as it turned out this green bastard caught so many sea trout during it’s first days of action, that I […]

Woolhead Sculpin V2 – fly tying – video

New version of my Woolhead Sculpin. This one is made entirely of Woolly Sparkle Dub (well… and a hook, some thread and a pair of 3D eyes). 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  […]
