“Der Loppo” Step By Step Tutorial

Der Loppo (1)

I was asked so often in the last time for a step by step tutorial for the Sea Trout fly “Der Loppo”, that I finally made one.

Der Loppo (2)

This fly isn’t something “brand new”, “the next revolution”, “the game changer” or anything like this. It’s just a mix of some ingredients of good flies mixed together to a fly, which I personally like and in which I put my faith when fishing. I made flies for my fishing in Continue reading

Pink Dutchman

My good friend André Miegies gave me once some really nice feathers, which were dyed by himself in some terrifc colors. If I remeber right, it was white ear pheasant. Beautiful feathers with very long soft fibres. I used two feathers for this shrimp pattern in the successful color pink. As antennas, I used crazy legs, which give the fly a little bit extra movement.

André is from the Netherlands, so it’s clear why I gave the fly this name…. 😉

Here are the materials:

  • Hook: Gamakatsu F314 #6
  • Antenna: Crazy Legs two toned
  • Horn: Senyos Laser Dub pink
  • Ribbing: Mono
  • Hackles: Spey Hackles made by André Miegies in Pink
  • Body: Ice Dub Pearl
  • Eyes: Mono Eyes made by Holger Lachmann

Articulated Pike Streamer

Got some new cool materials for testing! Main topic: PIKE!

I will do some “a closer look at…” in the near future. Here is the first fly I’ve tied with some of the materials. A big, but very lightweight articulated pike fly. Even if it looks very big, it’s not as hard to cast as you might imagine.

Articulated Pike Streamer

These streamers for pike are articulated, so the move very nice. The length is between 17-20 cm. Even if the look quite bulky, they are easy to cast, because the materials are tied in sparsely . Really flies that everyone can cast.
