Racoon Winter Edition

The coastfly called Racoon is a classic along the coasts of Denmark and especially around the island of Funen (Editor's note: It's originally a Norwegian pattern as described here). We have put local guide, flytyer and flyfisher Jesper Lindquist Andersen behind the vice to demonstrate his spiced-up version for the upcoming cold periode. The pink dubbing and the dark grey color of the fly have made the fly more visible in the water and it seems that the sea trout more easily find this coastal fly when the water is cold during the winter.

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.
