90% of the time we fish with versi tip lines with a floating belly and different types of sink tips. Simply because you can quickly change the tips, while standing in the water. If you don’t have a versi tip line make sure that you at least have a floating, sink 2 and sink 4 with you. But remember, one can’t have too many lines.
LEADERS & TIPPETS
10-20 feet tapered leaders with a tippet between 0,25mm. and 0,50 mm. Colder waters expect leaders as short as 4 feet.
Tippet spools from 0,28 mm. – 0,45 mm.
The most important thing is that you believe in the fly! The name of the fly comes second. Make sure you bring flies in sizes from 2 cm-10 cm. Bigger flies from 15-20cm can be used in high and cold water during June. Make sure your hooks are strong and sharp! Only fish size 6 hooks or below are permitted. Popular patters that regularly work here are:
Onka – Banana – Björk – Grey & Green – Phatakorva – Red Butt – Green Butt – Silver Garry – Silver Grey – Sunray – The Usual – Willie Gunn
Blue Charm – Black Doctor – Green Lucy – Kinermony Killer – Bokova – Rainbow Rocker – Rapala Fly – Beiss – Dee Sheep – Posh Tosh
Layers are definitely the key! You will need warm underwear and thick socks wool is the best. A warm hat and a warm down or primaloft jacket for the cold evenings. Waders and a wading jacket or any other type of shell jacket.
Mosquito spray or roll on repellent such as “Jungle Oil” is strongly advised. A wading staff is always good to have on hand and a camera for the special moments!
