I recently became aware of the origin of one of the true classics on the Danish coast - the Magnus. It was originally tied by magnus Ting Mortensen of the island Funen here in Denmark. And it was tied slightly different from my modern version of the fly. More than 20 years ago the pattern was described as listed below. You can also see the fly in color in the Fly Gallery.
