Hope to do this next year too.
Also have tied some flies with motto " back to roots" made of an material I used to tie with years ago.
Material is called Body fibre and I still got a lot of it left,think you can't buy it from Finland anymore?
Anyway most of you know I don't like tying these kind of patterns anymore but there has been much talking of downsizing your flies and for that purpose I think these kind of flies are just great.
If everyone would tie only these kind of flies tying material shops would be bankrupt in no time.
They catch fish,no doubt about that but are kinda boring to tie in my opinion,for me tying is 50 % or maybe even more in my fishing hobby so just some of these and then go back on track.
Preparing myself for JKFO in Blekinge and many people praise for a black fly without any flash and of course one had to be tied.
This photo remind me of a conversation we had with some guys on FB.We talked about a fly called "Ålen",a fly which got some big guns on it's conscience,not so long ago a 11,2 kg mam.
This is a fly that has to be tied in less than three minutes so you can guess there's n o time for some fancy dressing here,interesting story and absolutely worth a try.
Couple of flies later I managed to tie
Here's some practice flies,in some pervert way I do believe in these.
And as long as I remember I need to add another SBS video of another fly,this time only with pics.
Also time to dig the biggest flies from the boxes,love it..
So far my fishing has been shitty with couple of blank draws or just some small buggers landed but fishing from a kayak leave me opportunity to just take some photos or just paddle around,doing only good for an old fart like me :)
