These flies will work for a lot of different fish - trout, bass even bonefish. They are very generic and generally useful as long as the size and style fits the fishing - wet flies, casting and retrieving. They were developed for saltwater fishing, but will also do fine in freshwater and streams.
I'm sure that Lithuanian fish will respond just as the Danish (and Swedish) fish do, which is usually with vigor.
If you are fishing inland trout rather than in the ocean, you might get some hints from this article on Lithuania or even this one on Estonia.
The book says Baltic trout... wondering if you know about trout fishing in Lithuania in particular (in English) and whether this book would cover Lithuania. I don't mean that the trout speak English of course, that might be asking a bit too much. But if you know of any information that would be wonderful.
I have enough time to find&buy materials, hooks and prepare for a nice trip!!!
I'm glad you got the book and like it.
For fishing in the autumn I would go for the smaller and less "meaty" flies. I will be fishing in September too, and my box will most likely be stuffed with patterns like Magnus (size 6 or so), Red Tag (size 8, 10 or so), Copper Bully (size 6, 8), Charlie Fly (size 6, 8), Danish Pastry Fly (size 4, 6). I will also bring some brighter flies for days with more wind and murkier water, like Klympen in orange and maybe a Big Hole Demon in red or orange.
I will probably also add some Rolled Muddlers, Pinky Pains and Brendas, which are not in the book.
Apart from that I usually have a bunch of streamers, zonkers and assorted other flies if I feel like trying something different.
Hi Martin -
Received a copy also here in Serbia :) Nice Book!!! I`m preparing for a week in Kolding, Denmark late September/early October. Please recommend me a few of patterns from book for that time and place.
Just got my copy today. Beautiful flies...great book. I am a fly pattern book junkie, and this is up there with my favourites. For the record I have been fishing the Polar Magnus the last couple of years here in New England in the local ponds after ice out. Crappies, perch, bluegill, and pickerel love it as much as your sea trout!
Hi Martin !
Received your book few days ago. Excellent !
Lot of tips and great pictures.
Stimulates me come there and try for these fishes .....
Nice job Martin, excellent work. Really!
I'm sure they would work for Swedish seatrout. And it would be fun to hear about an Italian marble trout caught on one of our Scandinavian flies!
actually I'd like to try your flies abroad, for seatrout in Swedish rivers,
but I will for sure try some of these for our fabulous marble trouts.
I'll let you know ....
I'm sure these flies will catch fish for you, even in rivers and even in Italy!
just bought your book ! Now you have an Italian reader too.
Hope some of these flies will work for seatrout in rivers too ....
Congratulations for the great work you've done.
Glad you like the book. It was fun doing, and fun to think that it's spread out to other tyers and anglers.
my copy arrived today - great pictures and a nice read with lots of good infos.
