Europea 12

The dry fly season is coming to an end. But it’s certainly not over, and the fishing can still be quite good. There are still insects on the surface - some that come from below and even some that come from above. An important food item for trout and grayling during the fall is sedges - or caddis. One of the most iconic and classic imitations of caddis must be the Europea 12 - a simple, beautiful dry imitation. Originally it’s a French pattern, attributed to André Ragot – according to the Danish author Preben Torp Jacobsen back in the 1960s. In this video we have our very own Håkan Karsnäser behind the vice demonstrating this beautiful caddis-imitation.

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.
