Grå Frede variant

The Grey Frede/Grå Frede is a truly simple pattern that is one of the Danish favorites for sea trout. This short bodied pattern is again in the popular sea trout colour, GREY! The original uses only grizzle marabou and grizzle hackle but because I hunt birds I have this wonderful material, that I use here, is black grouse marabou for the tail and head. This type of highly mobile marabou is found on most game birds especially those from a cold climate.

Tying thread: Dyneema 55 or GSP

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.
