Good fly tiers are creative and systematic, stubborn and humble. All at the same time.
Off season (October to May) the topics are mostly on fly tying. In season it’s all about fly fishing for trout and grayling in Norwegian waters.
Even when a hatch is on and the Winston is the weapon of choice, my Canon is close at hand.
If you just want to browse the photos from my fly pattern database.
A merger of the Europea 12 and the CdC & Elk. A great variation for the caddis hatch.
The classic all purpose caddis fly. Great for riffles.
The CdC & Elk emerger variant. Remember to tie the wings short!
By far the best dry midge pattern. Absolute lethality by the Norwegian fly tier Rune Stokkebekk
A great pattern inspired by Stig Vivelid Nilsen, a competition fly fisher and protean Winston Rod guy
A simple and effective fly for the times when the stones are laying their eggs
A great fly to hang on a New Zeeland like setup – behind a dry midge
Can not come around this one. A great emerger pattern, originally designed for the caddis hatch
