I was in contact with a Norwegian friend who visits the blog and he had noticed that I was lacking in deer hair flies for the trip next year so informed me of a few patterns I should not go without.
Im not a big fan of deer hair but over the last few nights it has sort of grown on me the more I have used it, even to the extent I went and ordered a set of hair stackers which until now I never possessed.
Elk Hair Caddis, not the greatest of examples in that the wings were done by hand and not a stacker, but Im sure the Grayling wont mind too much.
Dyret (The Animal) A fly devised by Gunnar Bingen from Norway. The original fly was Deer hair & Antron wool and is a killer of a fly for Northern Grayling...so Im told. I was informed to vary the colours so here is a few to get started with.
