Artic Shadow Flies

The Arctic Shadow flies have proven themselves extremely efficient over the last years, when fished under the right conditions. I mainly use this type of fly when I fish relatively strong currents/river flow, where I want the whole fly to move and “dance” with the current, or according to my stripping technique. This is a fly that moves completely different from how a traditional “soft” hair fly moves.

The fly is made so that it maintains its shape at all times. It is made of materials that do not get saturated by water. As a result, I have achieved two important effects: One, it looks bigger than it actually is, and two, it can be cast on very light lines – which is an advantage, as it disturbs the water less and therefore spooks the fish less.

My goal with this fly was to create a fly that appeared big without actually being big and one that would be easy to cast – where the whole fly would be static and follow the river flow. This is a completely different fly compared to traditional salmon flies. The Arctic Shadow is a fly that will always have a spot in my box, as it is a type of fly that I need quite regularly when fishing for salmon.

P.S.: All salmologic Arctic Shadow flies are tied by a professional Danish fly tier and therefore maintain a standard of high quality, in both material and workmanship.
