Gave it a long tought but finally decided to go fishing to Lovisa on Saturday.The wind blew over 10 m/s,at times around 15 m/s from Northwest so I decided to leave my flyfishing equipments home and just use my spin cast and jerkbait equipments to see if there would be some hungry pikes out there. It was just as tough as I was expect it to be,the waves was over 1 m (3.5 ft) high and even in some sheltered bays I dont think that I would have enjoyed fly fishing. Started to fish around 11 o clock and as I thought it would be hard to find some active fish. It took me almost an hour to find active fish AND the right color for today wich was white/black/red,all fishes except one was catched with that color combo.

No,no,no.Its not Christmas,I just call these new flies Rudolfs because of their red noses.Have already tested the red/white and orange/black flies and they looked good in the water especially the red/white. I´m still testing different materials,have still some issues to solve out with the head of the fly. On the two first flies I used Icelandic sheep witch have a nice move in the water but there are so few color choices so on the olive colored fly I used Artic fox witch has more color choices,hopefully I will be able to test it soon,and hopefully it works. Anyway,as you can see I´ve tied these on hooks,there might be tubes later. One thing I really like about these flies is that they will not be floating on the surface for twenty seconds after your cast,it goes under the surface immediately BUT it will not sink like a stone,it´s kind of slow sink and when not retrieving the line it hover in the water horizontally.It don´t got a up and down movement so it´s very important to use materials with good movement in the water.I have used Body fibre witch has slowly turned to one of my favourite syntethic material,it really looks good in the water.I also tried Big fly fibre but like more the movement on Body fibre. -Tied on a Fulling mill Scorpio 5/0 hook -2 bunches bucktail,one back and one on the middle of the shank -Body fibre (hopefully Nordic Angler will keep this material in sortiment) -Icelandic sheep or artic fox as head (still working on what materal would be best) BTW I love those eyes on the olive one,they look better natural then on the photo.Also from Nordic anglers sortiment.

I spent 10.5 hours fishing at Lovisa archipelago on Saturday and it felt good,in fact it really good.The forecast betrayed me once again but this time they promised sun,it was cloudy.they promised calm,there was wind round 4-5 m/s. I had a good feeling about this day,and I was right.Got some fishes from every spot I fished,the biggest was 2X 94 cm:s and a lot of smaller ones. Also got one pearch 540 grams,I thougt it would have been heavier because of its length but no...

Have been the whole weekend at my cottage for a very long time,in fact this was the first time this year! I went to my small islet on Friday evening so late it should have been useless to go fishing because of the darkness,instead I had a good dinner and prepared my equipments for the next days fishing. I woke up to my alarm clock 5.30am and had me some coffee and sandwiches. While I was lookin out from the window I knew it would be a difficult day from a fishermans perspective,no wind at all,the surface of the sea was totally calm. Well,I wasn´t gonna let that bother me,not now when I finally had a whole weekend doing something I really enjoy. Jumped into my boat and drove to the first spot.It felt kinda ghostly driving slowly trough the fog on a totally calm surface.

I had an crazy idea here one day while I was changing a couple of hooks on some lures of mine,I don´t know exactly how many days I kept on wonder and wonder but suddenly the plans were at that point when it was time to try to fulfill them. So yesterday late at evening I took a seat behind my vise and started to tie some new flies. The idea is to tie a small fly,Tarpoon model but smaller which can be fished by itself.
