Chartreuse Sand Eel

Sand Eels are a super-effective type of flies for the coastal fly-fishing. But when the sea run trouts are tricky and just bites the end of the tail - hooking the fish can be difficult. The skilled danish flytyer and flyfisher Mathias “Krølle” Ibsen adds a “dangerous” item on his sand eel flies for situations like this - a small stinger-hook at the end of the fly often does the job in his search of big trouts along the coasts in Denmark.

Tail: White Bucktail and pearl Flashabou

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.
