Baker - Bageren

Another of the classic salmon flies to the iconic Swedish river Mörrum, which is known for its large salmon and sea run brown trout and beautiful surroundings. The river has a faint brownish color from its flow through the Swedish forests, because of that orange and red colors often work really well. This salmon fly is originally tied by the local salmon fisherman and fly tyer Patrik Putte Eriksson and goes by the name Bageren (the baker) or Black and Nasty Orange. The fly was invented for early spring fishing when the water is cold – but it can also be very effective in smaller sizes for autumn salmon and sea run brown trout, which are provoked by the orange colors of the fly. In this video we have the skilled Erik Hellquist from the local Fiskeshopen behind the vise to demonstrate the tying of this "must-have-in-the-box" pattern.

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.
