Here we will be tying the tube fly Snælda by mr. Grímur Jónsson. The fly has been around for some years and had such a success in salmon fishing in larger rivers like West and East Rangá and other rivers that may have a slightly mirky water in them by and by. The fly is tied in many variations of colours. The body is black as always, but you can play around with the tail colours. It's been common to name the Snælda's by the tail, so for this video we would be tying a German Snælda since the tail colours match with the German flag colours.

Author: Grímur Jónsson.
Tube: Aluminum, Brass or plastic from ½ inch up to 1½ inch.
Thread: 8/0 black.
Tail: Black, yellow and orange bucktail.
Rib: Oval silver.

Hackle: Black rooster feather.
Head: Black. (some prefer to add a cone to the tube to make it heavier)

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.
