The Charlie Fly
Chocolate: The Charlie Fly was inspired by the underfur from the originator's Chocolate Lab. Ken Bonde Larsen's dog has unwillingly become the material manufacturer for this great sea trout producer. As it often is with Danish with sea trout flies it's a small, generic pattern.

Our first mullets
A difficult vegetarian: Since the 1960's the mullets have visited the Danish and South Swedish waters from late May to late October. They feed on green weed, are easily scared and do not pay interest to flies - most of the time. Impossible - but in 2005 Kasper Mühlbach hooked one fish.

Salty dreams and glassy shrimp
Salt: Chris Edghill writes: "Fascinating to see how they worked together, one would dive in between the rocks and sea grass, completely burying itself and the others just milled around waiting for a shrimp to dart out from it's hiding place where it would be quickly devoured."
This experience spawned his S.L.S. Shrimp
En Francais: We crank out some strange flies every now and then. Get an idea, dig through piles of materials and tie up a handful of slightly different flies, each one better than the previous one, but none of them really good. But sometimes one comes out OK.
Such a fly is Martin Joergensen's Création.
