A bit about myself.

When I'm not working it is quite often because I have gone flyfishing, which I have been doing since my teens, more or less. Normally I fish in Denmark chasing the seatrout from the shore and the trout in a smaller streams in the northern Jutland. But since Sweden is so close to where I live, I spend at least two weeks in that country every year, where the Grayling and the Leuciscus cephalus (look forward to another article on GFF!) are my quarries.
I have been fishing all over New Zealand from Auckland to Stewart Island for about 5 months - except the most northern part of the North Island.
Even though most of my fishing results in contact with garfish, cod and seatrout (from time to time), the fishing I enjoy most is light dryflying for smaller grayling and beautiful brown trout - and the most important: good company and no noise! Anyway, the year 2000 will be the year where I catch a pike, a chub and a mullet on the fly, like I have tried to for the last three years...

Tight lines.

Hi Kasper!
I haven't found majority of the materials of The Pink Pig - Pattegrisen fly. Where can I buy them? I live in Poland. Will you be so kind to send me some links to the online shops you know?

The Pink Pig is great fly, thank you for this step-by-step tutorial.

Spiderweb is manufactured by Danvilles. I think it is a 18/0 - fairly fine.

Hi Kasper,

For tying the "Nothing" You specified spiderweb for the thread. Do you know who makes this product? I can't find it. What I did find was SpiderWire. SpiderWire has many different types; mono, braided, saltwater, freshwater etc., and it is moss green in color. If this is what you specified can you tell me what type of Spiderwire you used.

Thanks I enjoyed the article!

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
