So now our thin snow blanket has turned to 60 cm thick and has covered whole Finland.We had a very heavy snowfall here the other day witch messed up the traffic here in southern parts of Finland,over 300 accidents in one day and I´m talkin about just around Helsinki. But now it´s seem to be time for the other mess with winter,it´s cold,and not just cold,it´s COLD !!! and while I was at work this Sunday morning I tried to figure out What do I hate most in winter,the cold or the snowfalls...Don´t know,both of them is not very high on my wishlist anyway.-36 degrees Celsius 04.00 AM at home and 8.35 AM -35 in Helsinki when I went home.
Well that´s all about weather complains,the Spring will be knockin on my door sooner or later. Have done some fly tying now and then when I haven´t been busy at work (witch I have been a lot). This one is a pattern I have tied for a while as you can see in my earlier posts and if someone doesn´t know yet it´s inspirated of Niklaus Bauers Sheephead-fly from flydressing.se
Tested it in my bath and I liked what I saw,hopefully the more important judges feel the same way. And this pattern is something I really like,it´s also inspired from the flydressing.se site and is tied by Tobbe Hedin and it´s called Ezza long hair. This is originally a Seatrout/Salmon fly but I changed some materials and made it bigger so I can call it a pure Pikefly :) It´s not the easiest fly to tie but still I´m gonna some more of these.
There is a lot of job in this fly that you cant see on this photo,I will take some more photos of the next one in middle of tying too but not some SBS shootout,if you want that there is a tying movie on flydressing.se site. Materials I´ve changed: Artic Fox ---> Icelandic Sheep. Schlappen ---> Marabou. Also left out those rubber legs simply because I don´t have any and also used different flash.otherway is tied pretty much the same way like in that movie. It´s not looks as good as Tobbes tying (not even close)But I´m satisfied with it anyway and this was my first attempt so..... :)At least I need some practicing with those Muddler heads.

    Greetings from Madrid to 5º

  2. Hello Djuza, I’m certainly interested in that last fly. As I’m writing this it’s around -10° C over here in Belgium, so not much of a fishing weather either, but we don’t have that amount of snow (just a few centimetres earlier this week).
