There is more to Flyfishing than just catching fish....

Bamboo flyrods, silk lines and old flypatterns from the Cattskills and the "recent" discovered north country spiders. My hardcore graphite fishingbuddys just smile and shake their heads when i mention the old stuff from the past.
North Country style and Cattskill style.

 It's not like the old patterns have taken over completely, my favorite pattern when Mayflies hatch is still the cdc nohackle, but there is something special about the flies and the story behind the old flies such as the Red quill, Hendrickson and the old spider pattern Patridge and Orange among others....and they still catch fish.

 So when this year's trip to the northern parts of Norway is approaching, it is with a new wooden fly box filled with old patterns.
Wooden fly box made by Lars Andersson of Sweden.
