Now this is a pretty interesting product! Looks good, adds weight and seems to be easy to tie with.

Great looking sculpins

Sculpin are a very common prey for all trout and bass, and a good sculpin pattern is always good to have. One of the problems is getting the fly down where it belongs, on the bottom. My beloved muddlers, which make very good sculpin imitations, are notorious floaters, and I need to add eyes and weight to get them just to dive.
These heads - called Sculpin Helmets from Flymen Fishing Company - seem to add both weight and good looks.

The so called Fish Skulls are also from the Flymen. I have seen them before and might even have some lying around. I have tied with Kameleon Heads from French Bidoz Products and caught fish on the heavy-headed flies. See the Screwhead Matuka for a little more info.
I'll try to get my hands on some Sculpin Helmets and tie with them. I'll of course let you know how the flies do.

RISE in Copenhagen

The world's best fly-fishing films are coming to Denmark. I missed it last year. That's not going to happen this year!

I have been to several of the previous RISE film festivals, but as a paradox I didn't manage to get to this great little fly-fishing film event the only time it's been in my home town, Copenhagen. I have been driving to both Malmo and Gothenborg in horrendous conditions, but the only time it was just a bus drive away, I missed it. I had the ticket, I had the time, but for other logistical reasons I didn't go.

Well, that's not gonna happen again! I have my ticket and I will be going to the center of Copenhagen April 10th to see some of the best fly-fishing films out there.

I can only recommend that you check this out. The festival is coming to a large number of European towns, and some places get sold out really quickly, so don't wait too long before you buy your ticket. The festival, which was started and is run by Nick Reygeart and Gin-Clear Media famous for many great videos, will be in more countries than ever before including France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, Netherlands, Slovenia, Croatia, Czech Republic and Poland.

See more and buy tickets on the festival's own web site.
