Grey Fred - Grå Frede

With a few simple materials you can create a lot - and "Grå Frede" is an excellent example of that. Danish Peter Løvendahl and Lars Meincke invented what must be called one of the most classic danish coastal flies for hunting sea run brown trouts along the coasts of Denmark. As such, the fly does not imitate anything specific, but perhaps that is why it can look like almost everything… Shrimps, sticklebacks, sculpins, gobys and a large number of other small prey fish are matched excellently by Grå Frede. In this video we once again have Danish Jesper Lindquist Andersen behind the tying-vice demonstrating this danish classic coastal fly.

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.
