  1. The adult damsel is very fun to fish with. Here in Norway it is not very common but should be in many places.

    I have tried diffrent patterns and have settled with this:

    http://www.flytyingforum.com/pattern10761.html

     

    That one i tie in both olive and blue/black. It have given me some nice fish that refused other patterns.

    I tie it like the adult lay on the water, this autumn i made a short film when i was alone one nice afternoon.

    You can see the movie here, it is is norwegian... Vaket - Fishing with dry damsel

    Or you can see it on my friends vimeo account here: Vaket on vimeo


  2. When I am bored of troutflies i tie some for salmon that i give away to buddy's who are stupid enough to waste time on fish that don't eat in the rivers :hyst:

     

    This one is very inspired by diffrent shrimp patters... I think it will work. But heck! What do I know...

  4. sorry, a rear hook. i dont know why but me and all my buddys call them the "stinger" on the back
    Aha! Yes the rear hook or abdomen hook as i wrote in the materiallist is a Mustad 94833 size 10. But any dry/wetfly hook will do.

    I use it for this because i don't tie flies on those mustad hooks any more.

     


  5. Hi Firetiger,

     

    They might look a little too detailed, but they are easy to tie.

    The brown spanflex is abdomen, rib, wingcase and head. It is not a lot of materials to be tied in.

    And the fly is very durable. I always pinch down the barb, i always forget this when i take pictures..

     

    But you are right, the fish demand less. It's me who like more and when the fish still says ok.... why not? It's cold in norway and the winter is long, i have plenty of time :-) It is important to have something new to try out on those old ones that have tasted carbon steel before :rolleyes:


  6. Leptophlebia Nymphs is very important in European stillwaters. This pattern imitates both the Marginata and Vespertina.

  7. Thanks Guys,

     

    Here is another one with gills. I use it for the Leptophlebia, by changing color it can imitate many species.

  9. Right now it is all about midges. This is a emerger that i'm going to try in a few months.

    I think that the stretch tubing makes very nice shucks.

     

    Type 1:

    Shuck: Stretch Tubing, micro squeezed with a hot plier.

    Back/loop: Nat. brown cdc.

    Legs: Dark dun deerhair.

    A simpler version without deerhair legs and with a traditional cdc loop. A few fibers from the loop makes the legs here.

     

    Here are some pictures that i took a while ago.. Notice how the wings look as the fly are starting to pump them up.

    Yes, i have also some emergers with red/rusty cdc on top.

  11. Thanks,

     

    If you like a more buggy, hairy body ... replace the antron/poly yarn with some knitting yarn. Use some sandpaper on it for even more hairy look.

    You can of course add a litte textile glue on the antron body and gently touch the glue with some squirrel or hares dubbing.

    I stick to antron or poly body because it get easily rid of the water when i cast, and still goes down easily.
