I seem to be getting equal catch results with both a normal magnus (as this seems to be the better of the series) and a barbie pink ice dub shrimp.

Are there any patterns that combine a magnus with pink details. I thought I'd tie up some magnuses with a pink ice dub tail or a body of pink dubbing. Any other suggestions?

This maybe a desperate attempt to squeeze even more out of two very good patterns, but the quest for the perfect fly must continue Rolling Eyes

Hi Wiggy,

There is the Polar Magnus, who combines the 'classic' Magnus, with Ice dub body and pink hackle.

If can read Danish here is some suggestions how to make it

www.lystfiskernet.dk/kystfluer2.asp?Navn=Polar+Magnus

If you prefer it English you can see how to make it here

You can also choose to make an all pink Magnus, I have few in the box for really cold winterdays.

Cheers

Bo

Thanks for that Bo.

I've tried polar magnuses, and they don't work at all over here! Strange, but this is just my findings. The magnus with a pink ice dub tail worked wonders on it's first swim, so I'll be using this more!

The magnus with both ice dub body and tail didn't work at all. But at least I've found another great fly.

As regards language, I'm just fine with danish, though when it's spoken in broader accents, I have some problems understanding.

All pink magnus, now that's a thought!
