The Global FlyFisher - The Largest and Best Place to go for Online Fly Fishing and Fly Tying
How many of your flies work both in salt and fresh water? How many of these actually look like something real? The Deep Diving Shrimp is such a fly. Oliver Edward's allround Gammarus imitation works equally well everywhere you find this very widespread animal.
Kasper Mühlbach - GFF's eternal grayling hunter - takes on another challenge from the Lady of the Stream. This time he travels to the Czech Republic to learn from former Czech National Fly Fishing Team member Jan Siman. Does the Eastern European grayling differ from the Swedish one?
Four happy, Danish boys go hunting for grayling in the southernmost Swedish river, which holds a decent number of this beautiful fish. Author Kasper Mühlbach joins GFF partner Martin Joergensen and their common friends Jens Groenlund and Asger Olesen on the journey.
This is not a review as such, but then again. GFF partner Martin Joergensen got the chance to play with four great and very different rods from ECHO, Harvest, Partridge and Scierra. All are light stream rods, but they still display large differences when fished side by side.
A small trip for grayling in the southern part of Denmark. Not something that will go over in history, but certainly a nice trip with beautiful sights and beautiful fish.
Realistic flies are not only for the display case. As Steve Thornton shows us, realism can also be applied to practical and effective fishing flies. Trout and grayling beware!
For the last last three years, some of my friends and I have been to the southern central part of Sweden in the Malung-area. Each year we caught a few grayling, but they were quite small, about 20-30 centimeters. We blamed the high temperature, the high water, the low water, the flies everything... and at last, ourselves, but this year everything seemed to come together, at least in one of the waters.
