A popular Danish pattern designed for salt water sea trout. The Magnus can be tied in various sizes but I believe works best in # 6-8. With only basic materials required, just about any fly tyer can tie this. You can also substitute the hares mask dubbing for the body with ice dubbing to make the Polar Magnus, same pattern, more bling!

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.
