The Podolsky fly

Last year in August just a couple of dasy before I was heading Kola for our fall season at Umba I got a idea for a new fly – A fly I wanted to honour late Nick Podolsky. Our Umba camp manager and my dear friend during many years. During six weeks The Podolsky fly produced 45 salmon for my rod. Biggest Salmon was 3 x 15Lb. 2 x 17Lb. 1 x 18Lb. 3 x 20Lb. 1 x 22 Lb and 1 x 25Lb.

“The Podolsky fly”

  • Hook: Double Hook 6 – 8
  • Tail: Kingfisher blue Polar Bear or Bucktail, 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 (Wing is not a must)
  • Hackle: Black Hackle and Orange front Hackle

Try it and have fun out there
