  1. I use a lot of Polar Bear for my salmon flies here in Iceland but the best substitutes I found was the Arctic Runner and Polar Pony hair. Its fantastic material to use for you salmon, trout and small saltwater flies. Today I buy most of the hair from here; www.pickafly.com since its really difficult to get a quality material online. I usually have to touch and feel the material before buying it but the owner of the site knows what is good quality and doesn't send bad quality materials.
  2. Merry Christmas / Gleðileg jól - Micke and everyone else on this forum... greetings from Iceland Palli
  3. Long time since last post... but Im getting into gear now.. This looks good but Mr. Haugur knows everything about this fly... he is the creator

  7. Hi bob Here is Dimmbla --> but Dimmbla means Royal blue or Dark Blue - http://www.frances.is/Vorur/Vorur/Laxaflugur/dimmblatvi.jpg
  8. Bob... Again I love your flies... the akroyed is beond by wildest dreams but one thing about Dimmbla is that you are not using the right colors... Dimmbla means Royal Blue The tag is right but the feathers should have been the same color... Cheers Palli
  9. Takk takk siggi No the recipe isn't a secret... I used every squirrel tail I had and used in the wing. Started with the brightest (white) and ended with the darkest (royal blue)... Tail is black and white crystal flash and the body is just black thread. Hackle is black... Skál Palli

  11. Another great job Bob... Green butt skunk is awesome... If anyone wants to buy this book, you can order it from here --> http://www.boksala.is/EN/DesktopDefault.as...8/prodid-45424/
  12. Great fly - do you use loop tubes when your are fishing?

One 95 cm this morning Waiting to catch the 100 cm plus salmon and that picture will be framed with the fly it takes. 17 salmons caught now, the smallest one is 14 lbs and the biggest is 19 lbs :) Love Iceland... Mark. I never kill salmon and it is not allowed to kill any salmon in "my" river. Palli

  18. HAHA I called the police and asked if they could tan the hide of the polar bear and send it to me for fly tying Earthquake... that was some on big earthquake but only minor accidents in southwest of Iceland. The fly name was hare something... I looked it up last weekand but its similar to the trout flie Zulu... Palli
