Rusty Magnus

Hook: TMC777SP #6
Thread: Benecchi Red
Tag: Benecchi Red Thread
Tail: Hareline Wooly Bugger Marabou Rusty Brown
Body: Hareline Hare’s Ear Ice Dub
Hackle: Whiting Bronze Brown
Rib: Copper thread
Eyes: The Fly Co Beadchain Black #M

Magnus is a classic scandinavian seatrout fly, here tied in a rusty version with brown/rusty colors in the hackle and the tail. This is a very durable fly: the hackle is secured with a copper rib and the head is finished with superglue, then Bug Bond to create the head around the bead eyes. It can be weighted down with some led, but these have no additional weight as I want to fish them in shallow waters and slowly.

Inspiration came from the “Flugfiske i Norden” (Flyfishing in the nordics) magazine that have a great article on hackle flies for seatrout in the latest edition.

Olive Woolly Bugger

Thread: UNI 6/0 Grey
Tail: Wapsi Select Marabou Plumes Olive
Body: Lead, Hareline Hare’s Ear Plus Dark Olive
Hackle: Chincilla Neck Olive

Wooly buggers are a must to have in the box – the marabou and body hackle on this pattern gives it a lot of life that should trigger a hungry trout.

Black Ghost Marabou color variations Allen S401 #6
Thread: UNI 6/0 Black
Tail: Marabou in different color variations
Body: Black Floss, UNI-Mylar #10
Wing: White Marabou
Throat: Marabou in different color variations

I follow on, and the other day a list of black ghost marabou in different color variations came up, so: I had to tie up some variations on this one to see how it is put together. The marabou should give a lot of movement in the water and the silver ribbed body can’t go wrong. Looking forward to test this in a river across a pool late at night.
