Mosquitoes & Mayflies | EP4 | In a cloud of caddis

17th January 2019


I and Håvard continue our trip through the Arctic landscape. When we finally get some good weather we realise we’ve chosen the wrong river. A few hours later we find ourselves in a cloud caddis.

To chose the most effective fly is of course tempting. However, it depends on whether it’s a “true fly” or not. Some say it’s stupid to have any rules in fly fishing, but I do not agree. If you strive for the most effective way to catch trout then the whole idea of fly fishing is stupid. But when your friend is catching one dream trout after another is hard to hold onto your principles. This episode is about the inglorious “Ismopuppan”.
