One of those unique flies for Seatrout fishing, this pink carrot looking fly can be really effective sometimes. The shape is something you can cut down yourself. It is a Finnish style fly that is very popular in our neighbor country and something they use to bring with a lot of confident when they travel to us at FishYourDream- Gotland. Here is @tapanihen with a seatrout caught on Mulkkis last week. He counted down the depth with the Vision Kust line for 15 seconds before starting a slow retrieve.
Here is the Mulkkis, you can tie them in many different sizes.
In Denmark also called glimmerrejen. I prefer the Finnish name just because it is so fun to pronounce and because of my parentage partly is from Finland.I send this as a last minute tying tip for those who are traveling to Gotland during the spring. Eventually, I will probably tweak a Gotland style version of this pattern even more after some more test version but I think it is important that it still remains very compact with a clear silhouette. Very visible in water with a lot of movement or on a cloudy day it suits just perfectly! In dirty water though, the cactus chenille is just awful, it gets stuck all over the fly!
@myflyfishingdiary caught this seatrout on mulkkis yesterday when we were out fishing. Quick retrieve but with long stops. BOOM!
