Fiskeri med musefluer

Dear Flyfisher: Welcome to yet another newsletter from Fishmadman – We have come to the beginning of a new season for Atlantic Salmon – and steelhead

Season 2014 was not a very god year for the Atlantic salmon – and many concerning words has been written about the problems this fantastic fish is facing.

We hope for a better year in 2015 and recommend that you follow the great achievements of NASF (North Atlantic Salmon Fund) and Native Fish Society that work to help Atlantic Salmon and steelhead.

We do also hope that you in 2015 might take the opportunity to make someone  interested in fishing  – We need more people to be passionate about our sport and the fish we fish for – we believe that passionate people will help to preserve our fantastic rivers and the fish that run them.
  
This time we have a winner for the annual Fishmadman competition – Stories about a good-bug that made the day – and a wooden card that will keep bad-bugs away.

Tight lines from Per and Jesper

Wake fly for steelhead

The Flashback Bug

Steelhead anglers have been fishing this new steelhead bug on different rivers in BC and Oregon this summer and the results have been great. It was named The FlashBack Bug by steelheader Loren Irving from Oregon. We have tied it in 3 sizes like flies tied on 1 – 4 – 8 hooks
It features our Riffling Hitch tube system and wakes perfectly in rough and calm water.

Take the opportunity now and get: 2 of each size FlashBack Bug`s + 6 hooks all in our tube fly box.

Keep moth from fly tying material

 

 

Red cedar Bug card - keep the moth out of fly tying materialJuniperus Virginiana or Red Cedar has been used for centuries as a product to keep moth away from your clothing – It is the strong smell from the Red Cedar that helps to cover-up the smell of the things that the moth wants to lay their eggs on like, fur and feathers –

Now a report from the University of California at Davis actually suggest that Red Cedar, over time will kill the moth larvae that may have found it´s way to your cloth or fly tying material

Do what you can to keep the moth´s away… and do this by keeping our Red Cedar Bug-Cards alongside your fly tying equipment – Keep things in plastic bags and change the Red Cedar Bug-Cards every  3 – 4 years

We at Fishmadman have done so for decades and have (knock on wood) not had any problems with moth
