The 2020 salmon season is over. A strange one with less travel but better runs in many rivers. We already long for the 2021 season, we long for opened borders, free flowing rivers and good runs of big fresh fish to fish for with our newly tied flies.
We are proud to introduce the new style of flies – The Butterfly Series. Tied in a different way, with the fish’s perspective in focus. Translucent and lively, with a whole new profile – Butterflies have already caught hundreds of fish around the world. Read Mikael’s article in Chasing Silver magazine and watch Mikael tie the Lion fly in the Pattern of the Month film series on our YouTube here.
Now we want to see your Butterfly creations, with this new innovative way of tying. Many different feathers can be used, from very small to big and evil – all flies can be tied with this technique.
Mikael Frödin and Håkan Norling will judge your flies based on the style, pattern, attention to detail and level of innovation. The winner will receive a 3000 SEK / €300 gift card to be used on FITS and SSS fly tying materials at frodinflies.com. Contribute with as many flies as you want to – there’s no limit.
• Tie at least one fly with the Butterfly technique.
• Publish a photo of your creation on your Facebook or Instagram
(Or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
• Tag us, @frodinflies in the photo, and use the hashtags #frodinfliestyingcompetition #frodinbutterflies
All fly tying orders above 750 SEK / €75 until October 31 will get a FITS Organizer box free of charge! Enjoy extra order on your FITS materials.
We need to see your flies before October 31.
The winner will be presented 1st of November on our Facebook, Instagram, and in blog at frodinflies.com. Follow us and join the SALAR Club newsletter on frodinflies.com to be notified.
