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.
