Also a wind up to 30 m/s keep me away from water so got both time and inspiration to tie some flies,old style and even some new ideas.
There has been so much wrote about all "ordinary" flies so I just add some pics of them.

Easy to cast and work well,durability could be better but...guess you can't have everything in one package.
Also couple of articulated has been tied,mostly with a offset hook to be fished deep among reeds
One tricky but very interesting thing was to blend bucktail and pike skinz or other synthetics.After some practicing I think they came out pretty good looking from vise,especially tied on tube and added a wiggle tail on the rig.
One thing that I'm really excited of is a pattern that I got from a Irish friend of mine,he named it to "Shape shifter".
I told you earlier that I liked to fish with different types of deceivers but here in Scandinavia our waters turn to very cold in autumn and often you need to have looooooong stops while retrieving,and when fishing in shallow waters it can be difficult if the fly sink too fast,that's why this kind of a "hybrid" is so good.
The idea is simple,tied the backpart of a deceiver on the hook rig,and rest of the fly on a short tube.
Also you can combine one back part with different colored heads which mean I don't have to drag a lot of boxes with me which in turn is very good when I fish from a yak with limited space.
|You see the idea here.|
