The aim of this blog is to connect fly-tyers all over the world, to share, techniques, patterns, information and knowledge.

The Autumn is upon us.

Hi, I am now back from a weeks fishing with Marc petitjean and Neil Patterson on the Kvennan beat of the river Glomma here in Norway.  We had a great week with lots of grayling on dry fly, up-to 45 cm. I will be posting a full rapport from this trip later.

Heres a snap of Neil doing his thing…

And Marc doing his…

Just to keep you up to date, hunting has started here and the first opportunity I get (the next deer I shoot) I will be doing a step by step tutorial on skinning and preparing the most useful parts of the skin and deer mask. I will also be reviewing some groovy new tools and materials.

With regard to the salt water sea trout fishing here in Scandinavia and the start of the autumn season, I will also be doing a piece, most likely tomorrow, on the patterns every sea trout fisherman shouldn’t go fishing without.  I will also be posting the next stage in the fly tying course.

Cheers

    How does Neil connect his wading staff to his wading belt? Looks like it might be connected twice. Is this correct? If so, why?

    • Hi Dick,
      No its not twice, its twp ring conectors that make one large loop that he put over his shoulder and across his chest. So when he uses the staff at a full arms length the loop around him gets tighter.

      Cheers
