North Pole Flies
A while back a very talented fly fisher and fly tyer from Sweden asked if I wanted to do a fly swap with him. Having seen many of his flies I agreed. Well last week I received a package from Sweden. I opened it up and was impressed with the flies inside. Some of the flies he fishes in his waters, and a few are the most wonderful tiny flies I've ever seen.
The fly tyer is Mats Olsson, many of you know of him as the "Jassid Man".
He has a wonderful blog by the same name. It's funny how a gent from near the north pole, can take a fly tied by a Pennsylvania limestone fly fisher The Jassid and fish it successfully in Sweden. It shows just how close we in the fly community are.
These are the flies Mats crafted. They will without a doubt take a few of my brookies. The two on the far right are the tiny flies he ties.
These flies are incredible. I don't plan on fishing them, they're going into the fly collection.
Mats I was going to make a famous dish of Sweden, Potato Sausage, and Meatballs. But that will be a future post.
I just want to say thanks Mats. And if you have a few minutes check out his blog. STAY WARM.
