Dýrbítur Fancy

Here we will be tying the fly Dýrbítur, a legendary fly by an Icelandic fly tying and fly fishing legend, Sigurður Pálsson. This version of the Dýrbítur is an excellent option for spring fishing for sea-run trout. The fly is a great option for both stream and lake fishing. A black version of the Dýrbítur is favoured by many many anglers here in Iceland. Totally worth to tie and to try.

Long story short

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.
