Spent some time over the weekend to tie up some seatrout patterns. The shrimp patterns are new for me, I just got a whiting spey salmon neck the other day, so I’m looking forward to testing that out.
And: follow this space for some interesting news in the next week or so……
I got some new sealwool from http://fluefiskern.no/ and had to tie up some VB in sizes #4, #6 and #8 on Daiichi 2546 and TMC 811S. The quality of the sealwool is great and I will post something later to compare with other types.
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.
