  1. Hi, very interesting thread. While fishing in new zeeland this past winter (december) i fished with a guide on the lower mataura. We fished mayfly hatches during the day and a spinner fall in the evening. As it became Darker the spinner fall died out and the fish stopped rising. But at moments fish would jump like crazy out in the current, violent rises. As we talked about them the guide explained that They were chasing caddis pupa rapidly emerging and the fishes had no time to stop before breaking the surface. He gave me a small soft hackel in size 18 and instructed me to swing the fly down and across and at the middle of the drift slowly lift to Rod to force the fly to move up in the water. This turned out to be a very effective method imitating rapidly emerging caddis pupa. We had a great time and caught a few more fish before calling it a night.

    Those are awesome! Looks easy to Cast and should catch fish!
  3. Those look very Nice!! Would love to see some macro shots if you ever get a chance!
  4. They are a little bit bigger. But its not to bad! Great hooks! Knapek P is also a great curved hook. These hooks has a fairly large hook eye, this makes them great for bead patterns. I want to warn u guys about the knapek jigg hooks in size 12 and smaller. The eye is above the hook point, this makes it extremely Hard to hook fish!!! 👎
  5. It is pearl core braid. Or a similar material. Sweet stuff! http://hareline.com/pcb.html I like the chartruse color!
  6. This fly has caught me alot of fish! If you want to spice things up, tie it with red thread =)
  7. I can see the materialslist and tying instruktions and a few picuters! Very Nice fly, well done!!
  8. Great looking fly Terje! Can i ask how this rides in the water? Does it ride on/in/under the surface film? I'm looking for a caddis pupa that rides in the surface film =)
  9. E. Danica with a silicon-dubbing extended body. Realy like how These extended Bodies looks compared to the foam ones! -Mattias
  10. Very nice! Both flies and photos inspire me alot! Thanks for sharing! =) -Mattias
  11. A Semi-realistic emerger on the patridge klinkhammer hook size 16 with veli autti style legs. -Mattias
  12. Haha ok, sorry! It's Brown antron, about 2 cm long fibers in a dubbing loop that you cover the body with. Then you get you're lighter and burn the fibers. Should work with alot of synthetic dubbings, not just antron.
  13. Its nymph skin colored with a permanent marker in both of them. Or do you mean the "house"?
  14. Trying to work out a semi realistic cased caddis! These are meant to bounce of the bottom! -Mattias
  15. So, i flipped the jaws and have them a good cleaning. This really helped! Thanks for the tip!! However it the side that i flipped to had some of the groves (or what it is called) left. But it sure feels alot smother. I do like tying on the dyna-king, solid vice, smooth rotary function, easy to change settings and lots of space around the hook. The problem with the hook sliding only occurse with long shank hooks in smal sizes, like tmc 200R and hooks like this!
  16. Thanks for the tip. I don't have any Gun oil but i think i can find some substitut =) ill give it a try!
  17. i bought a used barracuda and i experience the same problem. i solve it by placing the hook so the jaws get maximum grip. But i will probably change vice manufacturer in the future.
  18. Great! Thanks for the tips! I really liked the wings made out of CDC! it should do the trick on smaller flies. The mallard breast have beautiful markings, i have to source a bag! Thank you for all the advice! Really appreciated.
  19. Hi guys, I've just started tying wally wings and i wonder what type of feathers you are using? I like mallard flank for the larger flies but for the smaller ones i haven't found a good feather jet! With regards Mattias
  20. I don't like the veevus. Trying a 12/0 now and it feels line it breaks to easy. I like benichi 12/0 a lot better. Uni trico 17/0 is really nice aswell!
  21. There are some awesome flies being tied every month! Thanks for the inspiration! I thought i would contribute with my first fly post on this forum. I'm new to fly photography so feedback is much appreciated! SMR emerger Hook: Partridge 15BN size 16 Body: Nymph skinn Hackle: whiting, barred ginger Post: Poly yarn Legs: Pheasant tail fibres
