Vaskebjørn flue

Vaskebjørn flue

Vaskebjørn or Raccoon, translated from Norwegian, is a pattern that very quickly established itself amongst Scandinavian salt water sea trout fishermen.

Developed by Christian Schanche a local fly tyer in the county that I live, is obviously inspired by some of the top Danish patterns like Frede and Magnus.

Christian also says that its not just a favourite for sea trout but it is also an effective pattern for sea bass.
