This blog is dedicated to flyfishing which is the most interesting fishing method.
I am living in the Russian Far East, love fishing and travel, flyfish since 1986.

New flies for the fishing season 2013, issue 6

Floating pike flies Ballydoolagh Bomber were invented by the Irish fisherman Alan Hanna. They could be presented as a Mega Diver, with a floating line, and also with a sinking line going on a bottom. The fly should be presented slow, with stops. This spring I am tying a series of these flies; I want to test them on Amur pike.
