Damselfly Dog Nobbler – stillwater trout fly tying

Tying SBS and underwater action of the UK classic, the Dog Nobbler. This fly was designed by all round angler Trevor Housby, after inspiration from American spin fishermen using ultralight tackle and small jigs.

Maroon’n’black Wool Leech – trout streamer fly tying

Tying SBS and underwater action on the Maroon’n’black Wool Leech. The yarn or wool leech is a simple, but effective imitation on leeches in freshwater and ragworms in saltwater. This is my take on the classic pattern. The glass bead seems to work great on these flies, if you want more of a gliding than […]

Nightwatchman v2 – pike, musky & trout streamer fly tying

I’ve pimped my favourite pike streamer (which happens to be a killer for large predatory trout as well). The new version has rubber legs, a bit more flash and those cool eyes from Flymen Fishing Company. It’s not replacing the original Nightwatchman – just adding an alternative with a bit more spank :0) Share

Bumblebee Woolhead Sculpin – saltwater and streamer fly tying

Tying sbs and underwater footage of my Woolhead Sculpin. This time tied with focus on maximum contrast – and as a silhouette fly. When you fish these flies high in the water column or in low light conditions, eyes aren’t important in my opinion – profile and silhouette are factors that close the deal. See […]
