Laxa flugur - Nils

Fáir veiðimenn hafa náð jafn miklum árangri í laxveiði og vinur okkar hann Nils Folmer Jorgensen sem hlýtur að teljast einn færasti veiðimaður landsins þó víða væri leitað. Við fengum Nils til að gefa okkur smá ráð fyrir lok tímabilsins:

 

Choosing he right fly is one of many parameters on the way to success. I totally disagree with those who believe it is all about being at the right time at the right spot. First of all, it is making a tactic and the executing it, a subject I could write a book about. But I have seen quite a few situations were the fly has made the absolute difference, no doubt. I have seen flies spook fish off even under a perfect presentation by the angler. Size matters, dressing matters, flash amount matters, colors matters, movement matters. Generally keep the flies rather small and not too heavily dressed. If I should choose three flies for a road salmon trip through Iceland, it would be:

 

Autumn Hooker

Ask around or look in the Log-books. No matter where or when, it is the safe play. Note, it has to be tied with horse hair to maintain a rather slim profile and not become like a “bubble” in the water.

 

Radian

The odd looking fly which I have awaken MANY salmon on days where everything else has been dead and that goes for the whole river. Again, it has to be tied with horse hair to maintain a rather slim profile and not become like a “bubble” in the water.

 

HKA Sunray tube

If you are fishing big river and need tube flies, my top fly is HKA Sunray which also goes under the name Bismo. In my opinion the best choice for rivers like Blanda.

 

And the riffling hitch of course, Haugur or something black. Color does not matter.
