Dear blogg readers..
Some of the best times as a flytier is those times when you sit and play with different materials. From time to time you find the most lovely cominations of colours and different materials. A while ago I found Pearsalls 6B which I have looked for a long time, actually I found it on woodenspools. Really nice and authentic, well anyway... And when I cleaned out my box of mixed feathers I found some really nice Golden Plover feathers. So I added those and the Pearsalls 6b and came out with this..
I really love tying this kind of flies, lokking forward to try them out this spring. With a sunny day like today the spring feels closer than for a long time. I really feel that the winter ought to be over now.

Low activity

There havn´t been much activity on the blog during some time now, a long time. Well I have had som other priorities, lots of work and some projects at home. We have made some renovations on our house, at the moment we are working on getting a new kitchen. Hopefully all will be done within a month or so. I have done some article work together with my friend Leon Links, we had a great piece about the Quill Gordon published in a Swedish magazin "Flugfiske i Norden", I was really pleased with the article, Leon is a great mentor in making articles. We recently finished a second article about Red Quill & Hendrickson that also will be published in the same magazine. Also made an article on my own about the Stewart Black Spider that hopefully will be published later this year... So I havent been lazy..

I will soon start writing on the blog again..

Until then, here´s a picture taken by my good friend Bruce Corwin. The picture is of Mary Dette holding my fly that I made as a tribute to her.. Do I need to tell you that  I am prod of having my fly in her hand?
