Green Highlander 1/0 (fishable pattern)
Posted 01 July 2012 - 10:11 AM
I found an old Partridge hook inside of my tying box, so I decided to start an experiment. In practice I wanted to tie a fully dressed fly to be used in my next salmon fishing trip, maybe in Norway, where I hope to "enter in contact" with a nice fish. For this reason I selected a quite big hook and I choosed the Green Highlander, because it is a really effective pattern on some Norwegian river.

A stunning example of a GH !!!....as this is a fly who's by YOU (and no one else - wink !)...is so beautyful tied !!!
Fishingwise a bomb !!! especially on this fishable 1/0 hook
Thanks for letting the 'andrenaline' flowing to 'pick' that fishinghook out of a box and 'start this GH'
pstttttttttt a pitty (Yes I looked to the European final football this evening - this after a long 'day' of a baby drink and party' )...that Your 'SQUADRA' lost the final ...but must admit the SPANISH team was a 'joy' to watch playing football !!!
and now I sign off for a day or two !

yesterday it was a bad match and the coach made a lots of mistake. Many player were in very bad condition, so it would have been better to start the match with "fresh" and more motivated people. 4-0 is not only a defeat but an humiliation! Anyway, the Spanish team played at a superior level.

Anyway I should be there quite soon and this year the fishing condition seems really promising. I would like to reopen this topic with the image of a salmon caught with my GH. Moreover, my friend Gianluca is completing a split cane rod for salmon and we are curious to test it.

I go to Rogstad for the eighth season in a row in a few weeks.
Rogstad is located about five kilometers upstream Støren. Before that, I will fish in the river Driva a few days before.
Who knows, maybe we can meet if you are around.

my dear friends Tone and Jeremy fish regularly the Driva river and probably you know them, but I never fished that nice river.
I will be around Lundamo in a few weeks as well and I know the area where you are going to stay, as I fished quite frequently on the Winsnes and I took an appartment in Rognes.
The salmon have started to cross the Gaulfosshølen, so I suppose that the upper part of the river will be very good when you will be there.
I will wring with my my laptop, so we can stay in touch and maybe to meet each other.
