New tying video released

Finally managed to get my thumb out from the hole and made a new tying video.
I love the dirty roach color,have caught me a bunch of nice fishes so I tied a couple of them,ready to to be teared apart.

Fly tying continues

When pikes go picky I often try to downsize my flies.Of course I like to fish with Wiggle tails and have tied some with a snap lock on a titanium wire.
Also some with shanks.

I love fly tying and I like to try out new materials which I luckily have been able to do this winter thank's to my homies at Fly-dressing.
New materials enable me to also try out new patterns which is nice,you can create some fancy things with small lightweight pikeflies too.
Sometimes it's just relaxing to tie some basic patterns with a new twist using all these new materials like this Polar reflector flash,awesome to add in between the ties on a basic hollow deciver.

Also I like to use other flash than Magnum flash on my smaller ties,and I have fell in love with a material I actually have had for a while but used it very rarely.Hedron Polarflash got some super nice colors on market like the pearl blue and this dark olive pearl.

With these small twists i think my flies got that little extra "something" in them.
Tied up some basic decievers using these materials,still quick and simple to tie,easy to cast and catch well...I like that.

Still waiting for open water.....got my sights middle of April.

Playin the waiting game.

Mother nature playing mind games with us impatient anglers waiting for some open waters.
It has been a pain when todays +4 degrees has changed to tomorrows -15 degrees,also the snow has almost melted only to see that next day we got 25 cm again but nothing to do except waiting and try to find something to do before D-Day which getting closer and closer.
For me it has been fly tying and trying out new materials which I have been lucky to get from Fly-Dressing for test-tying

Got my boxes pretty well filled and I'm really excited for the forthcoming season.
Have had some fun times behind my vise....

The fly above Is a new pattern for me,saw it on   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qv423opZhNo&t=7897s
But couldn't tie a similar because I don't got all materials so I had to improvise a bit,came out good enough in my opinion it's a small Fly,much smaller that I use to tie,only 13 cm long and with a XL sized Dragon tail it's just about 20 cm.Tied on a Vision/Partridge Big mama 4/0 hook and a 35 mm long shank.
On Niklaus tie he added Predator fiber as the head but I don't got that stuff so I just tied with Rainy's craft fur instead.
Think I need to tie couple more of these.

Just adding these pics makes me wanna go fishing so badly but while waiting go and check out this one  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHsbQgqARWE&feature=push-u&attr_tag=HoAvFWzG-HA-6
