Working with floss can be a pain at times; it splits up and doesn’t stay put where you want it. But it really doesn’t matter when it comes to flies like this that you actually go out and fish with: this red midge pupae should be a good addition to any box for when the trout season starts up again

Trout in the tunnel

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI don’t own a car, so living in Oslo with access to public transportation I love the fact that places like this is available within a very short travel from downtown Oslo. The day was spent drinking coffee next to the stream, fishing for small trout with this quill & hackle pattern, but when I got to this tunnel (it goes underneath a road) I was stuck… I tried a lot of differnent midges and mayflies, but nothing would appear or be interested in anything. Then I put on a white/green variation of the CDC&Deer  and instantly I had 3 trouts on: all taking just in the exit of this tunnel.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWith all the foam you had to hit outside the patches of white, if not the fly was just hidden by it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor rivers like this (if you get a 500g trout here it is big!) I bring my Sage TXL-F #1 and Click 1. A great combination to get out those #18/#22 with a 6x/7x tippet underneath branches and trees along the river.
