Bacon Snack – articulated streamer fly tying – video

  My take on a large articulated streamer fly. It’s a Zonker style tie using muskrat fur strips for the wing, and Woolly Sparkle Dub for the head/shoulder build up. Has proven super effective for most predators – especially for brown trout and sea run brown.   Bacon Snack Rear hook: Ahrex NS122 Light Stinger […]

Fat Bugger (Black’n’silver) – streamer fly tying – video

Streamer fly for trout, perch, bass and other predators. It has got a jigging action and lots of movement and flash. I like this color combo – especially for night fishing and dark days. It’s just an amazing searching pattern for rivers as well as lakes. Fat Bugger Black’n’silver  (with affiliate links) Hook: Ahrex NS110 […]

Loopy Leech – fly tying – video

This is the illegitimate offspring from a romance between a Fur Leech and a Woolly Bugger. 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 […]

Soldier Palmer – fly tying – video

Cool looking and super simple wet fly. Besides… this is a variation of one of the oldest flies known, the Red Palmer – which is mentioned by Izaak Walton (1653) and maybe even Dame Juliana Berners (1496). Anyway… trout still love it! Soldier Palmer Hook: Wetfly # 6 – 14 Tread: Black or red Tail: […]

Loopy Leech – a reloaded Woolly Bugger

The Woolly Worm and the Woolly Bugger are some of my favourite flies – and recently I’ve worked a bit on the concept of making a Woolly Bugger that incorporated a bit more sparkle and flash than the original. Furthermore I wanted to make it a bit more flexible – by making it easy to […]

Bead heads and glass heads

Opening of trout season is just a week away now – so I feel the usual heat of cabin fever. To dampen the worst symptoms I am tying flies and making a lot of new fly tying films for my YouTube channel. The last couple of days a bunch of bead head nymphs has been […]

Wool Glo Bug – fly tying – video

A small fly for those fish that raid the breeding grounds of trout and salmon. Dead drift these alone – or use ’em in combination with a weighted Girdle Bug, a Bitch Creek or similar weighted nymphs.
