Parachutes with Orange wing TMC100BL #16
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Black
Tail: Whiting Hackle
Body: Fly-Rite Extra Fine Poly Black
Wingpost: Wapsi Polypropylene Orange
Hackle: Whiting Bronze

This parachute pattern is favorite of mine and I tie it up in different colors, normally I tie in with a white wingpost but this time I got myself some orange Polypropylene and tied up a small batch to bring with me. Tying up more later today, but I should have enough in my box now (when do you get enough of these??)


Devil Bug

Hook: TMC 100BL #12
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Black
Tail/Casing/Head: Wapsi Premo Deer
Dubbing: various colors

Lots of things happening now, tying up different dries on BL, and today it was time for some Devils Bug with some different dubbings. This is a very simple fly that can imitate different things, but I think it will work well stripping it in towards land, making a good impression in the surface on the river. Looking forward to try it out.

Bomber for Trout Knapek Streamer #6
Thread: UNI 6/0
Tail: Calf Body Delux
Body: Wapsi Premo Deer Black
Hackle: Whiting
Wing: Calf Body delux

A quick one today after getting these BL hooks from Knapek after a visit to Stramline in Oslo. Will tie up a batch of these to bring along for the autumn fishing, the trout can go really nuts after these, and after just before dark they will be especially efficient!



Hook: TMC 100BL #12
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Black
Tail: Wapsi Premium Deer
Body: various dubbings
Rib: UNI-Mylar Holo Silver
Head: Wapsi Premium Deer

This is a great profile on the water: Dyret (or “Animal” in english). I tie this on up in different colors as well, but I would normally put on the yellow one. The red would go great for char and trout on lakes and I will consider this a great searching pattern as well, tie it on to see what is hiding underneath.

I tie up a lot of batches these days for my upcoming autumn-trip to Rena, these are all heading for my BL box since that is a BL only river.

A rib of holo silver to make this green version even more of a attractor

The classic yellow version:

More Vaskebjørn


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.
