Red Krafla Trout

Here we will be tying the fly Krafla by mr. Kristján Gíslason in a trout version. The fly is a great option for both stream and lake fishing. The fly catches both brown trout and arctic char, seatrout and salmon. I love tying it since it's a little challenge. It's fun to tie and fine to have in your box. I've caught quite a few on this one!

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.
