A wasp is quite a big insect, but a type of fly that in the beginning of autumn can really get the attention from trout and grayling, get them to rise to the surface and inhale the fly. In this video we once again have the skilled flytyer Håkan Karsnäser behind the vice demonstrating his version of a wasp. It's tied in a smart way with two bobbins for the two colors of the black and yellow part of the body on the wasp. Give it a try, and even though we don't like wasps, the fish just simply love them.

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.
