Goby/Kutling…

Kutling

Goby,or kutling in norwegian,is an important food source for the sea-trout here in Scandinavia. There are about 2000 species of these in the world. These are small fish,and normally they are up to 10cm in lenght. They are abundant and the fish eats them willingly. Imitations of these small fish do not have to be very sophisticated. This one is basically a zonker style fly,made with a mix of spun squirrel and opposum dubbing. I find the most important feature of this fly is weight. It needs to be heavy and sink fast. By using lead/tungsten wire combined with materials that draws water you will achieve this easily. I will go fishing today,and maybe if I am lucky there will be some pictures in the next post…

The Zonk 1…

Everbody seems to be in zonker-mood these days. Maybe that´s because fishing in the sea is the only option for a flyfisherman right now. Zonkers are really easy to tie and a good start for beginners. Besides that, you can always catch something on them. This style of fly will also be excellent for hooking big browns in early season as well.
