I am a bit slow at the moment but I have a lot of things going on at work, tying seatrout flies and stuff. Well here is a little movie from our last trip and the first one of the year. Fishing buddy Gustav was the lucky one to hook the first bow of the year. A cold day with ice on the lakes but the bows was fighting good in the cold water and we managed to hook 3 each that followed us home for dinner.

Here is a simple and easy shrimp pattern that works and looks really nice.
It has a transparant look in the water and the seatrout loves it.
Oaklind Easy Shrimp
Hook: Partridge YK12ST size 10
Thread: Uni-Thread gray 6/0
Eyes: Shrimp eyes
Antennas: Brown fox tail
Body: EP-Shrimp Dub Brush
Throw the hook in the wise and wrap the shank as in the picture.
Tie in a bunch of fox tail and secure it well.
Tie in the eyes with a figure eight wind.
Tie in a pice of EP-Shrimp dub brush over the eyes and secure it well.
Wind the dub brush forward and fold the fibres backwards. Don´t wrap the brush to tight otherwise you loose the transparant look. Secure the brush with the thread and make a little head. Whip finish and secure with a drop of Loon knot sense. Use an old toothbrush and comb the fibres backwards.
The shrimp is done and will be perfect for seatrout, bonefish, tarpon or other saltwater fishes.

Well .. it was a long time since I posted something on the blog but here I am. I hope you got som fresh gear from santa last year. I got my hands on a new wading jacket (Guideline Kispiox) and a new pair of waders(Guideline Crosswater) , a real bargain.
I also have started to tie up some seatrout flies for the seatroutbox. Here are some candy:
