Gulff Magnus

One of the most classic flies for fishing the salt around Denmark and other places in Scandinavia must be the grey/grizzly palmerhackled fly called “Magnus” - a fly that has caught hundreds - or thousands of trouts along the coastlines. The fly was invented by Magnus Ting Mortensen way back in 1973, when it was intended as a light and fluffy shrimp imitation. Experience has shown, however, that the fly does not look like any particular food item, but it swims around and looks like anything - which is probably why the fly is so effective. We have again had danish sea-trout expert, guide and flytyer Jesper Lindquist Andersen behind the vice demonstrating his version of the old classic - but spiced up with a fluorocent head.

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.
