The Podolsky fly

Just two days before my leaving for Umba I August I tied up a new fly for Umba and named it “The Podolsky fly” in honour of late Nick Podolsky.

I only fished the Podolsky fly this fall at Umba, and the Podolsky fly proved its worth, with 45 salmon in total. Biggest Salmon was 3 x 15Lbs. 2 x 17Lbs. 1 x 18Lbs. 3 x 20Lbs. 1 x 22 Lbs and 1 x 25Lbs

“The Podolsky fly”

  • Hook: Double Hook 6 – 8
  • Tail: Bucktail, Kingfisher Blue, mixed with 2-4 strain of Krystal Flash in color Pearl Blue (notice that the tail should have the same length as the fly, or a bit longer
  • Body: Braided Silver Tinsel.
  • Wing: Black Polar Fox.
  • Hackle: Black Hackle and Orange front Hackle

Give “Podolsky” a try and have fun “out there”
