|Dette er et såkaldt "hemmeligt" mønster jeg er faldet over i et Amerikansk magasin. Jeg syntes det ser lovende ud da det immitere adskillige af søens insekter...|
I artiklen stod der blandt andet:
"The Halfback is one of these patterns that doesnt look especially like anything but as far as the trout are concerned it appears edible and is sufficiently similar to a number of species of nymphs and freshwater shrimps to fool them. There are a number of variations on the same theme as might be expected since most fly-fishermen over there (Red.: USA) tie their own and, of course, each swears by his own creation. Sometimes a layer of lead wire is used below the body to help it sink quickly. The simplest dressings consisted of nothing more than pheasant tail fibres, and olive chenille.
I guess you might expect me to like this fly? You bet! As to the pattern, the simplest version is an olive micro-chenille body with pheasant tail fibres tied over. The pheasant tail fibres are tied in first then the body is wound forward and the fibres tied in at the head. Later I saw another version. Its construction is similar except that the body has a green lurex rib and a brown dyed palmered grizzle hackle. I was given it by a fisherman who worked hard and caught a lot of trout. He whispered: I can give you this cause you wont be here too often, its too deadly to give away round these parts.
