Let Fisheries Biologist and Professional Fly Fisherman Brian Chan show you his time tested methods that catch fish. We combine two very popular elements in this DVD. First we tie 11 flies that fish love and then we use those exact flies out on the lake and catch fish. Also, because Brian Chan is a left handed fly tier, we programmed the DVD so that both Left handed and Right handed fly tiers can easily follow his methods. Brian Chan shows you step-by-step, how to tie 11 favorite stillwater flies that he has been successfully using throughout his career as a fly fisherman. Brian then shows you the techniques he uses to catch fish with those same flies. It's fascinating even for the experienced fly-fisherman. Not only that, Brian catches the insects his flies immitate and then shows you where to look for the signs or clues that indicate which fly would be a good bet to fish with.
Again we join Morten Oeland on fishing trips in different locations. We fish in high mountain lakes and saltwater along the open shore.
This is dry fly fishing at its best. Terrestrials are land based insects – grasshoppers, beetles, Daddy Long Legs etc. Imitations of these insects are natural additions to any flybox and Morten Oeland shows why.
This is a film in the series The Fish & The Fly. In these movies we cover in detail many different challenges the flyfisher faces. We have travelled to amazing rivers and lakes to find the best conditions to demonstrate nymph fishing.
This is a movie about fishing the dry fly. We join Morten Oeland on a number of trips to different waters in Denmark, Greenland, Germany, New Zealand and Swedish Lapland. We take a close look as he finds the insects the trout are feeding on, and when he chooses the right imitation in every situation.
Fishing Dry Fly on a Chalk Stream My mainstay dun imitating dry flies are the Paradun and his Footprint Dun. They are both prototypical patterns, readily matching any of the Olives or Spurwings, right down to size 22. The Paradun is very easy to tie and floats like a cork, furthermore it lands correctly on every cast. The Footprint Dun is for those occasions when you encounter really picky, difficult fish. It takes a little more tying skill, but this is a pattern that can often save the day. Mayfly Time on a Chalk Stream Ephemera danica, the Greendrake, is famed for hatching in vast numbers - 'The Duffers Fortnight'. However, on rivers where the hatch just trickles off, the trout can be almost as cautious as when taking small Olives. This is when Essential Skills come into play. Your artificial will have to be a good imitative copy and it will have to be presented accurately and delicately if you wish to score.
