Krafla Fly Tying tutorial

Ívar's Fly Workshop

Dear viewer, feel free to support me at PayPal:

Here we will be tying the salmon fly Krafla by Kristján Gíslason. The collection Kristján designed is widely known in Iceland among Icelandic anglers and some look at Kristján as a legend. I can agree on that, Kristján was amazing. The fly is a great option for stream fishing and had proved itself in most conditions. We are proud to post this video since it's one of Icelands most known flies. The fly maybe tied as a trout fly as well on a single hook with a bead. Great fly and a little challenge to tie, but always fun and satisfying when you have good Krafla results.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

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.
