Wiggle Sandeel

Here is a take on a super catchy sand eel imitation.
Spring fishing for sea run brown trout is the peak of the season for many coastal fishermen in Scandinavia. The baitfish starts to become active again when the water temperature is rising, and the silvery sea trout will be hunting gammarus, shrimps and baitfish such as sandeel and herring along the coastline. The skilled fly fisherman and fly tyer Rasmus Ovesen enjoys the exciting coastal fishing for the large shiny sea trout that hunt sandeels, and here is his take on a super catchy imitation that has given him a good amount of large sea trout both along the Danish and Norwegian coasts. He ties the fly with an action disc on the front to add extra life – something that can really trigger the big sea trout - big fish calls for big flies!

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.
