Hello again all fishing and hiking lovers. This time I’m making a fly fishing video. In this video, I tie the fly and then I’ll show clips of the places where I have used this fly. About history. Every now and then I have been asked , to do fly tying videos. I always refused because youtube already have enough of tying videos that have made the fishermen and tyers who are better than me. But now I had been thinking about this for a while I decided to do a couple tying videos. To make it a bit different I decided that this video also includes fishing. So I tie one fly and in addition I show a few fishing spot where I have used this fly. At the same time, I give some information on these fishing grounds. Something like this is coming. This time I tie a fly called Blue Hackle Leech. Just a normal leech with a blue hackle. I didn’t come up with a name for the fly so I’ll call it Blue Hackle Leech or Wooly Bugger. This fly has a history. There is a coincidence with this, as with many beautiful stories. A few years ago I tied a big bunch of black leeches. Then I got tired of tying them and thought of making even one different fly. Then I found a blue rooster among the fly accessories and I thought about making one leech with a blue hackle. Then summer came and I went fishing to Lapland. There I ran into a small creek which was shallow. It looked like a place where the fly was caught in the bottom. So I was thinking of fishing it with a fly that is not important to myself. So II chose a leech with a blue hackle. Then it happened that I got a lot of fish. I fished with that fly in other places and always got lots of fish. So I got some kind of emotianal bond to this fly. That’s why I thought about starting these videos with this fly. But before I tie this fly let’s see a few fishing spot where I have been using this fly. So Let’s go to Lapland for a moment. Here is the first fishing place. In front is Lake Kyyneljärvi and under the drone is Lake Inari. This is a small rapids between them. Here’s a quick look at the entire fishing area and a little bottom shapes. So quite a shallow and small creek. Little background information. We just came here by boat and first I fished with a spin rod and got one trout. Then came the feeling that I had to fish such a great spot also with a fly. Let’s see how this went. These clips have no decent soundtrack so I have to put some music in here. This was a quick fishing session here along the way. Here’s the next day’s fishing. I have put over the summer clothes. I’m fishing again for this place. Such sessions. A fine place. The fish were small but a nice brook fishing destination. I tired the fish with a Class 2 rod. Yes. Blue Hackle Leech Then let’s start making this fly. I put my telescopes on, so maybe this is going to become something? I put the glasses on because people with glasses are not allowed to hit or dislike on youtube. Isn’t that the case? So, don’t take this too seriously. I pre-installed lead-head for this hook. First I use pretty thick This is big fly streamer thread. I only use it to attach the lead head. This comes a little faster with a thick thread. The hook is quite thin and there is a big hole in the lead head. This gives a little support here. Was it too thick? Let’s see. I put a little cease for safety. It doesn’t need it, but this time we’re a little uncertain. If this went well, the lead head would fall into place. It’s good. Then take a black thread. This is the actual tying thread. This is 8/0, so pretty thin. This could be a bit thicker. That would be a little less trouble. I can’t change it so let’s go with this dry fly thread. I tye the flies with a feeling. Every fly is different. This is the first time you think about what to do next. Should we put on more weight? Do you want to make this a decent depth bomb. This time I could do one. So I put a few rounds of lead wire around the hook. I use Ultralight rods myself. This is going to be a pretty heavy fly for them. But this is not about casting distance. This fly is supposed to sink deep. It has lead wire. Next, I’ll put the flashaboun. Here are 4 thin ones. I’ll put it at this point so it goes into the marabou. Then I’ll put this blue hackle. And at this point I’ll put this rib wire too If I put the body hackle. It depends on how I make this fly this time. then black Marabou. Good looking feather. I’m trying to set it to about the right length. Then I make the body from the same material. That is, black body. This is going to be a rough fishing fly. The purpose is not to win the tying competition, but to catch fish. Then we are in the final stages. Attach that rib wire. So we get some life on the body. Then I tie the hackle. And we are ready to cease. Looks pretty bearable. Yes grayling accepts this. Then another guy there. I have used a type of jig heads. But also a normal ball head or Wolfram head works. I don’t think it makes any difference whether the hook is up or down. I’m pretty sure that the fish are not interested in such a thing. Then cease and here it is. Blue hackle leech. Fast to tie and works everywhere. You can also cast this with a light rod. I have been fishing these with #3 rod. It has done quite well .. The heads have different weights. You can put them to your own liking. Here are two different flies. One is made for the long shank streamer hook and the other is for the short shank nymph hook. Let’s take a look at the second fishing place where I have fished this fly. At this lake lake destination. Here is this second fishing spot. The location of the shot is shown in that white dot. This picture shows an interesting thing. The picture shows a dark spot in the southeast. I don’t know if that’s because of it or any other thing, . but the fish enjoyed the place But that’s where those fish came from. From here the camera turned on and let’s see how this fishing went. It was such a fly. A very good fly that works everywhere in Lapland. This works for grayling and trout. Certainly also for the iron. I fished for grayling at the most. I don’t know if this was a sensible video. I thought I’d try this one. We hope you enjoyed this great performance. Like the channel if you feel like it. I’m trying to make more videos. If I have time. I am disturbed by the normal family life here But hopefully I can make videos sometimes. Thanks for watching. Like the channel if you like. More videos are coming. Thank you!
