Favorite Flies for Baltic Seatrout


Published Mar 5th 2012

My newest self-published book arrived today, and I'm very pleased with the result

By

As I have already written in our blog, I have made another book using one of the excellent self-publishing systems online. Print-on-demand is a great way of making books, and I'm very pleased with the result (as I have been with the other ones).

This time I have tried to cover my favorite fly patterns, and have included 29 of the flies that I myself and my best fishing friends use 90% of the time when we fish for Danish coastal seatrout.
Each fly is covered with nice images, a materials list and a tying description. There are tips on fishing the fly and some images of the fly in action, the land- and seascapes and what I thought would do well in the context. I have also added some full spread images to break the rhythm of the flies. As I said: I'm pretty satisfied myself.

If you are interested, you can easily order your own copy. Prices start at 28 US$. I don't make money on the sales, so don't buy it for my sake or the sake of GFF, but because you want a nice book on seatrout flies.


First copies


It's a long and laborious process to make a book. This has been underway for more than 6 months, and I have worked on and off on it for a long time. There are things I want to change, and I haven't gone through the finished product in detail yet, but I know when I do I'm bound to find errors... small ones, but quite likely errors.

Still: what fun it is to have your own stuff in your own book!



I have an article in the pipeline about some new seatrout patterns that I'm starting up with this spring. And I also started making an article about doing your own books using the same online service that I have used. It's fairly easy and a lot of fun. They will both appear on the front page once they are ready.

Hey Martin,
I know it's been a few years since this topic was active but I am planning on fishing a day near Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands in a week or so and I was wondering if these flies would apply down there or if you could point me in a direction for some info on Falkland patterns!

Marc,

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.

Hi,
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.
Thanks!

Milan,

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
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!
Best regards,
Robb

Pino,

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!

Hi Martin,
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 ....

Pino,

I'm sure these flies will catch fish for you, even in rivers and even in Italy!

Lukas,

Glad you like the book. It was fun doing, and fun to think that it's spread out to other tyers and anglers.
