Dear Members,

 

Not at all a classic...neither a freestyle with classical notes...just a 'SHRIMP' I tied in vieuw the relation ship with FISHING for salmon with my DANISH FRIENDS ...read PER HANSEN and LARS MOLLER...

 

A couple of times I flew over from 'our' tinny country Belgium to that 'other' European country DENMARK...and this to fish a couple of days for salmon on their leading salmon river : SKJERN A river...last year still a 'catch return' year with more than 1600 salmon caught  aswell a small amount of seatrout !.

 

ONE of the deadliest patterns in the 'past' on that same  SKJERN A is a pattern witch listens to the name of "ULDSOK" or "ULLSOK" or "ULLSOKKEN"

 

...and when I allways do my best to PRONOUNCE this 'lovely' name of that FLY better and better (up to allmost perfect)...I do my best to pronounce it during more than FIVE seconds hahahaha

 

and then it goes like this :   UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULLLSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKEN (a bit 'GHOSTY' call !!! hahahaha)

 

 

Last week it was PER HANSEN his birthday ...and i sended him up a birthday 'frog' card...and ofcourse accompanied with one of my "FROEN ULDSOK" flies (euh a bit smaller than the 'one' I tied later on and who is pictured here - fully gutted ofcourse !!!)....I like the 'mix' of the colours 'froggreen' and 'red/brown' GP breast ...pstttttt each of the parts received a froggreen BERLIN WOOL mane !!!

 

ENJOY...ah sorry for the 'simplicity' of my 'comeback' OPENER on this part of the site !!!

 

Geert

 

PS...and the man in the picture is PER HANSEN himself ...and yes aside on the table in front of our fishing Lodge are my "FROGGIE" and his "FROEN"
