Mickey Finn

Here we will be tying the famous fly Mickey Finn. The fly is a great option for both stream and lake fishing and is an American fly originally. Mickey Finn works great in Iceland just like any other fishing destination. The fly catches all kind of trouts and is an excellent fly to scan for with with and also to ignite the fish to take the next fly you put under. Rather simple pattern to tie and totally worth to keep few in your box when go fishing.

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.
