CDL Shrimp

When we are talking about shrimp flies for Scandinavian coastal fishing, it is impossible to avoid the popular Pattegris or the Pig. The long and extremely vibrant fibers from the Whiting Speyhackles have shown their effectiveness countless times ... but sometimes the fish are suspicious and only nibble at the tip of the fibers. For those situations, we have had Mathias "Krølle" Ibsen behind the plug to come up with his bid for a smaller shrimp fly that he uses, when he experiences the sea trout just following and nipping at the ends of the long fibers - the CDL Shrimp named after the speckled hackles from the beautiful Coq De Leon hackles.

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.
