THE WORLD OF FLY FISHING IN THE SURFACE

Surface fishing with flies for salmon and steelhead is probably the most exhilarating and exciting sport humans can venture into – The sport has become increasingly popular through the last 60 years – but anglers have most likely been fishing steelhead and salmon on the top sins the birth of dry fly fishing.

On the Fishmadman site we will try to highlight the essences of this sport, by showing you technique, know-how and some of the many fascinating flies made for our sport

The tube fly have been part of the European fly box since the 1940´s and anglers have ever sins been developing fly patterns on tube that would suite different rivers and seasons. A fly tied on a tube could look and work like any other fly tied on a single salmon hook - But it can also be something completely different - with abilities that goes beyond any fly you have tried... tap into our wast knowledge base on tube fly know-how - and get another Ace on your hand.

On our pages you will find Bombers literally cut into shape at the river bank. Just like we make flies tuned to the rivers we fish - other anglers will have made trout and salmon Bombers honed just for their district, river and even special pools - We try continuously to collect this information and publish it on our pages and blog

RIFFLING HITCH & WAKE FLY ON TUBE

Riffling Hitch as a technique emerged during almost a century of fly fishing traditions. Allegedly the method was generate as a coincidence, by Canadian`s - who in Victorian days would have recycled damaged gut-eye flies and tied them directly to the leaders using a series of hitches - Herby the fly could have trailed to the surface creating the all important Riffling Hitch wake.

We as many other European angler will tie Riffling Hitch flies on tube and on our pages you will find special Riffling Hitch and wake flies done on our Riffling Hitch tube - See the comprehensive pages on How-to work with tube flies on the surface
