Red Flashwing

Flies for the majestic salmon are proberbly some of the flies that are surrounded by the most traditions and unwritten rules. In the past, the fullydressed classic salmonflies consisted of a lot of exotic materials and complicated techniques - but it was also the "king of the fish" that was the target. In recent years, a new type of salmon flies has appeared, and especially in the Scandinavian salmon rivers and streams, they have proven their worth. Flies where the wing does not consist of either feather or hair materials, but rather synthetic flash materials have become very popular. The many flash fibers give an eye-catching look and an effective moving flow in the water. This flash tubefly has accounted for a large part of the catches in recent years and is gradually becoming a permanent "inventory" in many Scandinavian salmon fly boxes.

The very skilled Danish salmon fly fisherman Casper Hansen will this time demonstrate the effective Red Flashwing, which has already become a new classic especially for the earlier spring fishing, but can also be deadly effective in smaller sizes during the autumn-fishing, break the traditions and give it a try.

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.
