Many years ago I was fishing in a danish river for searun browns. I came across one of the local anglers. He gave me one of his flies, an odd looking fly with pearl Mylar tubing and uv red blob cenille as body. The wing was silver tipped squirrel dyed green. That day I’ve caught two nice searun browns.
From that day it has been one of my favorite flies for erly season Seatrout. The fly is called Saddam. Today I’m using a more modern version of the old fly. Now I tie it with opossum because it swims much better than the stiff squirrel tail.
Tube: clear 3mm and 1,8mm
Body: mirage tinsel and red blop cennille
Wing: opossum BG green
Hackle: dark olive slappen
Head: metallic green UFO disc 6mm
At the age of eight he got his first fly rod and a starter fly tying kit.
At the age of fourteen he started tying for the local fishing shop and then it took off from there.
He has now spent thousands of hours behind his fly tying vice and tied for several shops in Scandinavia and in Germany.
He also makes a lot of fly tying demos.
Kasper is a very versatile tyer he ties everything from the smallest dry flies to the biggest and meanest pike streamers.
But his biggest passion is the saltwater Seatrout flies, especially the shrimp flies.
He is always looking for new materials and new methods to make it easier and more effective.
