More Vaskebjørn

2014.08.12.vaskebjorn

Hook: Daiichi 2546 #8
Thread: UNI 6/0 Black
Hackle: Whiting Rooster Saddle Grizzly (1 feather used for the fly)
Body: The Fly Co Seals Fur Red/Black dubbing, A.Jensen Saltwater Dub ll White
Eye: Wapsi Bead Chain Eyes

This Vaskebjørn pattern can be tied with or without eyes, but I had to get some eyes on them to see how they turned out. The eyes also give it some extra weight that can be helpful in some situations – considering to tie up this in #4/#6/#8 and with/without a little bit of lead to make some of them even heavier if I need to get the fly down.

First Vaskebjørn

This is a well known pattern here in scandinavia for seatrout, but I have never tied it up before. I got a new Rooster Saddle from Whiting yesterday and since I’m heading out for some fishing tomorrow it was time to get this pattern a go. Not quite after the original recipe, but close enough to the video from Eivind Berulfsen. The hackle will give this a very vibrant flow in the sea, and together with the red seal fur it will be a killer!

 

Long Winged Emerger

dryfly.me.2014.01.08.emergerHook: Daiichi 1167 #14
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Yellow
Body: Hareline Hare-Tron Dubbin Pale Yellow, UTC Ultra Wire SM Gun Metal Blue
Thorax: Hareline Hare’s Ear Plus Dubbin Dark Olive
Wing: 3xCDC Dark Olive

This low-hanging emerger is a very good fly to keep when targeting trout: the hook will break the surface tension and sit low in the water while the CDC will keep it afloat. A few drops of floatant (don’t put anything on the body!) will keep this in perfect position. I chose a long and fat wing on this to be able to float it down a river and keep it as low as possible in the water. The white body with the blue rib is a good visual clue, I could go without ribbing to loose some weight, but with the amount of CDC on this fly that should not be needed.

3-wing emerger

dryfly.me.2013.12.31.3-wingHook: Daiichi 1167 #12
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Brown
Body: UNI-Mylar Peacock #16, Wapsi Premo Deer Hair Bleached
Thorax: Hareline Hare’s Ear Plus Chocolate Brown
Wings: Wapsi Premo Deer Hair Bleached

Found this interesting 3-wing emerger pattern on facebook and thought I would have a go at it. The original image was not particularly detailed, so I winged it in terms of execution. Since this was the first attempt some of the details came out a bit wrong, but I like the overall idea behind this one.

The top view: there is a lot of deer hair in this one, it should float very good
