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

- Body: Braided Silver Tinsel.
