Tying sbs and underwater footage of a streamer design mixing arctic fox hair and Woolly Sparkle Dub. With an internal glow from a maroon colored glass bead and the flatbraid body material – this fly is transparent – and the super soft materials breathe like marabou. I use this fly in the salt for sea … Continue reading "Sparkle Fox – steelhead, salmon and seatrout fly tying – tied by Michael Jensen"
Tying sbs and underwater footage of my Woolhead Sculpin. This time tied with focus on maximum contrast – and as a silhouette fly.

Does the world really need more shrimp patterns? Well… sure it does. And if for some reason you should doubt that statement, all you gotta do is check out todays fly tying sbs, where Danish fly tier and fly fisherman Morten Jensen ties his Amber Shrimp.

Part Woolly Bugger and part Fuzzy Wuzzy. Started out as a Woolly Bugger tied with the cool speckled Whiting Coq De Leon hen feathers. But since the best part of these feathers were to short for the palmer hackle on larger hook sizes – i started using the Fuzzy Wuzzy style with 2 seperat hackles. … Continue reading "Fuzzy Bugger – streamer fly tying – tied by Michael Jensen"
