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.

Streamtease Optic Fly – streamer fly tying

The Optic fly was released by ABU in 1967 as “a streamer of tremendous killing power” – and that label wasn’t all wrong. The Swedish tackle manufactor actually sold 80.000 Optic flies in the first year alone. The Streamtease is still a fabulous fly when trout feed on sticklebacks, minnows or young-of-year fry. This pattern […]

Fuzzy Bugger – streamer fly tying

Part Woolly Bugger and part Fuzzy Wuzzy. Started out as a Woolly Bugger tied with the cool speckled Whiting Coq De Leon hen feathers. But since the best part of these feathers were to short for the palmer hackle on larger hook sizes – i started using the Fuzzy Wuzzy style with 2 seperat hackles. […]
