The Humus "Fat" Edition is tied by contributing fly tyer, Swedish fly fisherman and tyer, Tobbe Hedin. We will be seeing more of his flies in the weeks to come. This fly was designed for, and has proven itself for Sea Trout, but would be equally successful for Salmon and Steelhead here as it has for him on his native Ljungan - a river that runs through the middle of Sweden. This is what he had to say about The Humus "Fat" Edition.

"Try this Pattern in Dark rivers in sunshine and in Clear rivers when it´s cloudy"
