Nice fly, but is that fly box from the new C&F style fly box range from Scierra?

Neat pattern, what fish did you design it for?

Sea trout, I guess! Cool In general you'll catch every predator on this fly. It reminds me of the "juletræ" - which I even use to catch pike.

The fly was designed for sea trout and actually caught its first two trout this weekend. It is in essence a Juletræ (Christmas Tree) with a wing made from a zonker strip from seal. Looks great in the water.

And yes, the box is a Scierra box, which indeed is very similar to the C&F Design ones. Nice boxes, actually.

Martin

Thank you for the information Martin. I'm a big fan of C&F Design fly boxes and looking forward to see Scierra's models as well.

Hi Martin,

That is one nice looking fly, anything with seals fur in it is pretty well a sure thing. It looks like it would be a good fly for brookies over here on my side of the pond.

Jamie,

It's pretty fishy in the water, and was used this weekend because the first fish I caught (and took and hence gutted) contained lots of little sand eels. See attached picture.

The fly is actually a pretty good imitation of these small fish, and since the water was relatively choppy, I thought that a visible fly couldn't hurt.

Martin, it looks like that fly would be a perfect imitation for those sand eels. I am going to have to try that fly for sure now, some of the local lakes have "minnows" here that look quite similar.

I am going to have to check with my step-father and see what part of Denmark his family was from. His mothers maiden name was Larsen and she married a Krauch, they emigrated here about 45 yrs ago.

Come to think of it is there a place called Feju ( pronounced Fayu ) or something very similar. It might even be an island i can't remember for sure.

Nice fly. Guess it would be somewhat transulant in the water. Should attract the seatrout.

That is a nice fly. When I saw the sand eels in your hand I thought of a pattern that I use for tiny sand eels in late May-early June when they are between an inch and an inch and a half. It is a hairwing on a #6-10 salmon hook using black thread gold body with a wing made up of just a few hairs each of orange, yellow, white bucktail and few pieces of black crystal flash and a piece of blue flash and jungle cock eyes. With striped bass one will miss a few because the hook is so small but if the hook set is not a strip set but done slowly with consistant pressure, then the hook ups occur. It's a touchy-feely thing.
