Hatches 2010: Scandinavian Tube Flies by Sverre T.H. Solgård

Magazine — By on July 12, 2010 10:09 pm

During the last two decades, the flies used in Norwegian salmon rivers have changed.
I remember the first time I fished for Atlantic salmon as a small boy. The flies used back
then were completely different than they are today.

I think it was about 20 years ago that I first read an article written by Swedish salmon-fly authority Mikael Frödin. The article was about a tube fly called The Gary. It was beautifully tied and looked much
cooler that those in my older fly tying books. The materials were different and he used some sort of clear plastic tube I hadn`t seen before. The fly looked new and fresh. Since that day, I’ve closely followed the progress of what is now called the Scandinavian tube fly tying style.

This and 13 other articles can be found in the 2010 Issue of Hatches Magazine(will be published September 1st)

    So! Whats the point?
    Nothing in that paragraph causes me to want to read the entire article.

    Everything has changed in flytying, materials, method of applications, glues, thread, hook forms and who supplies them.

    If tube flies had not changed I would wonder if that group of tyers was asleep

    If your going to publish articles at least the should have appeal,ideas, methods that will cause to want to try

    I’ve been teaching for over 50 of my 75 years and every day try to learn something new

    you missed with this lead in
