I just recently watched the latest episode of Conway Bowman’s show, Fly Fishing the World. This episode was filmed in Iceland and featured guest host Sasha Savic. There is a good article covering the episode over at the Fly Fisherman website. I highly recommend watching the episode or at least reading the article.
Now, me, being all about the flies, keyed in on the quick glimpse of the fly being used on this episode. It was a fly called the Snaelda which is a highly popular salmon fly which originated in Iceland.
Here is a video from expert fly tyer Davie McPhail on how to tie a Snaelda.
