if you look down the side menu you ll see a link to a guy called Ulf Hagström now ulf is an awesome flytyer his realistic flies are really something to behold please check his blog out you ll be stunned , well the other day he posted a pike fly on there the pattern its self is from swedish flytyer Mikael "Bluedun" Gröndahl.
what ulf has done is changed the pattern a little bit by replacing the original materials with his own interpretation , well so blown away by this pattern i just had to have a bash at it but by putting my own spin on it i.e using different materials to see what i could come up with and the flies below are the result .
as i said in a post before before there is nothing new in fly tying and i think its great if you see a pattern and tweak it to your own liking and maybe your not coming up with a brand new pattern but your coming up with a new take on an idea
so to ulf Hagström and Mikael Gröndahl i salute you
