Char Foam Fly

There is not much that can match the sight of a fish elegantly sipping one's fly on the surface - but it could be matched by the sight of a large fish aggressively attacking a fly that is being pulled quickly through the surface current or catching up with a skating fly in a splash. In this video we have the Danish guide, fly tyer and fly fisherman Jesper Lindquist Andersen behind the vice demonstrating his favorite fly for fishing for artic char, which are known for aggressively attacking foam flies in the surface even in ice cold waters - give it a try.

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.
