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. Now we're super excited avout UV resins.
The fall time offers magical times for salmon anglers up north. The surrounding colors of the nature are starting to get the shades of orange and red and the nights are getting cold. There's the special feeling also. Every angler casting on the last days of the season knows that it will take almost a year when they can do it again.
Almost like a Garry. I tried it in some of our local rivers in search for sea run browns. The fly caught me some good-sized trout, so I wanted to tie a similar fly for the dark hours as well. At first, I tied the fly very slim, but after a few tries I tied the wings wider in the front to get a bigger silhouette. I also added a wide but flat muddler head to it, and the Viking Champion was born.
It seems that we’re having a indian summer in the Northern parts of Europe where waters are running extremely low on most rivers and fishing is really difficult. We put together few suggestions for your late season trips. It’s going the be finding the right location and then playing with the right playbook.
The Atlantic Salmon fishing opportunities in Scotland are truly endless. There are no shortage of prolific salmon rivers for the visiting angler to choose from. As the rivers in Scotland vary so much in size and character there truly is a salmon river to suit all tastes.
Salmon has a fairly good eye sight. They see better different shades of green and blue when they enter the river and later on start seeing shades of orange. This is just due to the fact of their adaptation to their living environment. The blue-greenish shade of oceans apapts their eye sights into that environment.
At the end of the season, the fly tying gear, rods, reels and flies as well will get stuck into the closet. There they will have to wait for the right moment, inspiration and spare time to get the attention they deserve.
Fishing with dry flies is one the coolest ways to fish for Atlantic Salmon. The fishing itself is relatively simple, just cover holding water of the salmon or try and locate one fish and get her to react to the fly.
It is time to fill up all the tying materials after the quiet early winter time. During this season I start to fill empty material stocks and buy missing materials everywhere - from local dealers, web shops and from other flytyers.
