Here we will be tying the unknown fly SAR by my mentor, Jón Sigurðsson. The SAR is a great option for both stream and lake fishing specially when you are looking for fish in the springtime when the water is still a little bit coloured. Mainly the fly will catch seatrout and brown trout and the name of it SAR, stands for "search and rescue" and for a really good reason. I don't know how often this fly have saved my ass from being skunked in the springtime fishing here in Iceland. The fly literally finds fish and saves your day that way. This pattern has never been published before so we are speaking about a new Icelandic pattern that had already proofed it in the lakes and streams here. The fly is a MUST have in your box for the springtime fishing. 1000% recommended by myself.

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.
