Bright, colorful and visible. A perfect fly for slow fish in cold or murky water
This pattern is mentioned in Thomas Vinge's excellent books on Danish seatrout flies, but Henrik also mentions it several times on his own Danish web page. The fly has changed a bit over the years, and Henrik's current version has a hot glue body where the original had a tinsel body. The body color also varies a bit from smooth silver tinsel to gold braid - and the hot glue version, which has some sparkle mixed into the glue.
The name does actually make sense when you hear Henrik's story from its maiden voyage. On this particularly windy day, the bright fly wound up penetrating his nose!
There's nothing new about the basic fly, which is a bright, hair winged streamer, but it has proven its worth during many years in the Danish ocean.
