Red Butt Bead

Any box should contain black flies in both small and large sizes. "The color of a salmon fly doesn't matter, as long as the color just is black"... Every fly fisherman should remember these wise words, and especially for salmon and sea trout, the phrase fits. We have had Stefan Enevoldsen from Fiskeshopen in Mörrum, behind the vise to demonstrate the tying of this small effective fly which Stefan calls for one of the most effective flypatterns for especially the autumn fishing for salmon and sea run brown trouts in his beloved Mörrum river in the southern Sweden. This pattern is equipped with a red bead for weight and spot, a detail that can trigger even the most skeptical fish.

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.
