Ninja Toe Biter
Mutant Ninja Crustacean:
Since we all know that "Stripahs" never eat crabs... ['get stuck on the way down!?]... Well, maybe sometimes... Follow Pete Grays easy crab tie using mesh, rubber legs, glue and sand.
Wiggle Jig Worm
Another rag worm:
Maybe you found the previously published tandem rag worm too tandemnised and would be better off with a one-hook-only fly.Then The Wiggling Jigging Worm shown in this article is a good alternative.

Shrimp for a cocktail
: There are thousands of shrimp patterns in the world, made from the same template. This pattern is a time consumer, but it makes it more interesting tying shrimp flies. The eyes, proportions and legs gives this pattern some kind of magic.
See how to make the leggy one here
A Mickey Finnish zonker
: The Mickey Finn is one of the first streamers many beginning fly tyers learn to tie. Kasper Mühlbach never used it and for years a yellow and orange fly was missing in his fly box. Last year he was inspired to tie a replacement.

The killer fly
: How about a fly which has caught tuna in the tropics, salmon and trout in Russia, cod in Denmark and a number og other fish in Global destinations? Claus Bech-Petersen's simple Tinsel Fly is such a fly. Read Claus' article with history, patterns and fishing methods.

: The tube fly - or tube fly system - you can see on this page - is called the Banderillas. The name comes from the Spanish name for the sticks the the bullfigther uses during the fight. The body sections of this fly has some resemblance to these sticks.
: During a recent gettogether with some Danish flyfishers I hauled out some of my cod flies. One of them was this one - The Rocket. They were quite excited about the fly - first of all because it's a light tube fly, second because it's very durable. They saw in it not only the cod fly that I had made, but also a pike fly, a fly for pike perch and a universal fly for all kinds of deep fishing for larger fish.
: This is a fly made for a very specific purpose: cod fishing. It's used on a sink tip or sinking line over fairly deep water (3-4 meter or 10-13') from a float tube, and will turn upside down and 'walk' on the bottom.
The Femmer Crab
: This fly is the latest development in my experiments with the melt glue I have used with some success for cod. This version is much smaller than the original and uses a simpler and better method for building the body. This not only makes the fly faster to make, but also much easier to cast.
Gift wrapping string fly
I have some remote relatives in Boston who occasionally sends over christmas gifts to my kids. This year the gifts were packed with some particularly interesting string. This string was braided in the colors red and green with some shiny material laid in. It said "flies" all over it! I scavenged the remains from the unpacking and stoved it away between my fly tying materials.
The Red Fly
: A large colorful fly for cod fishing.
Cod on a flyrod
How to get cod on a flyrod - the once so common Gadus morhua - Danish inshore species.

: Cod and similar species are a much underrated quarry for the fly fisherman. In places where it's very common like Denmark and Norway, they are even sometimes considered an annoying disturbance in the much 'finer' fishing for sea trout. But cod can be an excellent game for the fisher whose gear and mind is tuned in on it, and the abundance and size of fish can easily justify a more focused fishing for cod.
Ice cold tubing
: As some of you might have noticed from my recent postings I'm becoming more and more fond of my float tube, and this trip would be a tube one too. All my favoutite wading spots are iced down anyway. The weather here has been very cold lately and the fjords, which are normally the water of choice for the winter, are unfishable.
