It's been our mission from the start to bring new ideas and fly patterns to fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon. From the "Top Salmon Flies" book, a fly called the Kursk got the most attention. Unconventional pattern mixing evolution with traditions. 

A strike point or a fly patterns capability to "glow" in bad lighting conditions is for sure something most of us have experience in. Usually we just use fluorescent materials which reflect the UV light. Now we're super excited avout UV resins. With the UV resins it's super easy to add a strike point to any fly pattern's butt or head. You can even glue a whole body and whip out a pattern with couple of minutes.

Here's a few examples of last week's experiments

"I knew that I didn’t have enough experience, nor I think I’ll ever have, to write about salmon fishing based solely on my personal opinions. So it made the perfect sense to have contributors that I had met while fishing for salmon to showcase their flies and methods. I started working with the ”hypothesis” that there’s just a handful of flies that any angler needs. "
