The buzzer I’ve tied is called the UV-Buzzer for 3 reasons:
The butt color is a fluorescent one. This color reacts to UV light. This buzzer is meant for fishing in deeper parts of a lake under a bung. The light that penetrates these deeper parts best, is UV light. Colors that react to UV light stand out more in deep water layers.
The thorax cover is made of UV-sparkle. It comes in long strands of about 20cm. This stuff really glows when the sunlight hits it.
The fly is finished with an UV-resin.

0031 Home waters

We had a lot of video material from last year, and even a little bit from the year before. I decided to do a little montage with these videos. An homage to our home waters… Enjoy!

Rainbow Popper

Fishing poppers for trout is a lot of fun. Exciting takes guaranteed! Learn how to tie an easy popper pattern in this video. This pattern has proven itself for rainbow trout, but it can of course also be used for bass, perch and other predators. It’s a very simple pattern, inspired by the gurgler technique.

Red Worm

This fly is easy. Not all flies have to be advanced and difficult to tie. We were introduced to this pattern while fishing the Salzach river in Austria.
In murky and fast waters trout and grayling need a notable fly. Chironomids are present in most of our waters, so it’s always a good all-round pattern. Usually we fish it with some split shots about 20-30cm’s away from the fly, or, when allowed, fish a very heavy nymph on the dropper. We use this fly on barbel as well. A very effective pattern!

Iron Blue Dun

Most dry fly anglers will know this particular fly. The iron blue dun. It’s a small may fly that can appear throughout the year. It’s one of the very few patterns that can be fished in the early spring or late autumn. There have even been reports of this fly hatching in the winter. So I good all-round fly one could say.
There are many different patterns that imitate this fly. My favorite one is with CDC feathers. They float like a cork and fish seem to like ‘em!

Hot Tail Nymph

I’ll tie an all-round river nymph this time. It’s a quick tie. The small hot spot on the tail gives this fly a special power.
Sometimes you’ll want a fly that stands out just a bit. Especially in water that’s a bit murky, a hot spot on a nymph can make a big difference.
Of course you can tie this fly in hundreds of color combinations. But be sure to use contrasting colors for the hot spot in the tail. Have fun with this one!

OVM Nymph

In recent articles and reports about lake Oostvoorne, I’ve mentioned this fly before. It’s one of my favorite OVM flies. A simple, but very effective pattern, if you fish it correctly.

Grayling LP Nymph

Grayling love pink flies. That’s not a big secret. Sometimes bright neon pink, sometimes a more subdued shade of pink. It all started with a ram’s scrotum… for materials and use visit

Floating Stickleback

We fish these floating stickleback flies dead-drift on a floating line and a long leader, to imitate a floating dead stickleback. Or we use a heavy sinking line and fish the fly with a moderate retrieve, to imitate a living stickleback. Adjust your leader length to the distance you want to fish your fly from the bottom up.

THN (Tungsten Hydropsyche Nymph)

A fly I use a lot, is the Hydropsyche nymph. It’s a nymph that lives in most of our rivers. So, a must have in every nymph box. I usually tie a Czech-nymph style fly for this purpose.
I wanted to tie something different for next season. A fast tie. I came up with the THN, or “Tungsten Hydropsyche Nymph”.

EP streamer, seabass and tarpon variety

Fishing EP flies need no introduction, it’s lifelike appearance in the water, it’s water shedding ability and near weightlessness in the water makes it an irresistible fly for predators all of sorts. It’s great on exotic predators like tarpon, jacks and cuda’s but here in the Lowlands they are superb on our beloved pike, seabass, asp and many others. The tying however seems to be more of a problem for many anglers and thus it’s value is underestimated by many. Tied by Brian Elward.

Barrios Tarpon Shrimp

Brian Elward has tied a couple of great flies in front of our camera. This week it’s one of his favorite tarpon flies for fishing the mangroves: The Barrios Shrimp! In the protective surroundings of the mangroves and estuaries shrimp seek shelter and food. They thrive between the roots and are washed out via rivers into the sea. Easy pickings for predators such as tarpon and snook who feed on them heavily. This fly has it’s roots in Puerto Rico. An innovative and excellent tarpon fisherman Orlando Barrios first posted some pictures of this shrimp. The way it pulsates through the water just beneath the surface will entice many tarpon to come and brake the surface. A first tie on for backcountry waters!
