Here's a little film from a demonstration tying in Gothenburg a few weeks ago. Sorry for the Swedish – you may turn off the sound or use translation if it bothers you.
This little special fly got its name from the white powerful hunter in the north. Nanook is a clear water fly. Mikael very often vary his sunshine flies from light blue to light green. In this pattern, we mixed the colours and got a nice sunshine fly that works well in both the greenish and bluish river. This fly has been in Mikael’s box since the late 80’s.
