The Royal Wulff

This totally new technique and material makes it possible to tie flies like the classic Royal Wulff perfect every time in under 3 minutes. This technique is still in development but its looking promising for most patterns and will change fly tying as we know it when fully mastered!

Rackelhanen caddis a Swedish classic

Not the original tying but the results are more or less the same. This easy tied, world renound caddis pattern was designed by my old friend, fly tyer and master rod builder Kenneth Bostrom. The name Rackelhanen, dirctly translated means ”Bastard Rooster” and refers to a strange natural cross breeding of Black grouse and the Capercaillie, of which the un-natural offspring is called a Rackelhanen. The Rackelhanen is fished as a normal adult caddis pattern but can also be pulled hard under the surface of the water so that it pops up agian rather like a hatching caddis breaking the surface.

Even keel Mayfly nymph

 

An interesting departure from regular nymphs with an up-side down hook and a thorax bead keel for ballast and weight to get that nymph down fast.

All hackle technique

One of my new techniques for hackling with any type or size of hackle including partridge, wood duck, teal, Coq di Leon etc. This technique is so new that I haven’t had a opportunity to fish with it yet but it floats extremely well, presenting emergers beautifully. I haven’t found a name for this technique yet so I thought I would have a little competition! If my subscribers suggest a name I will choose one and the winner will receive a fly box and a selection of my flies!

The Awesome Opossum Shrimp

One of my semi realistic feather and fur salt water shrimps, that requires a couple of techniques but is relatively easy to tie. Once in the water the shrimp is very mobile pulsating and swimming making it a real attractor pattern.

Thanks, Thanks and Thanks again!
