I tied this fly under influence of "Black Spey" of my friend and a very good fly
tyer Richard Syren from Malmö. First time I checked it out on Mörrum in august 1998. The
fly gave me 8.1 kg pure silver sea-trout. In May-June 1999 I brought three Swedish fishers
to southern coast of Kola. We fished 6 different rivers. The fly showed tremendous success
on three rivers: Chapoma, Strelna and Chavonga. Nearly all my favourite flies I used
before on Kola were beaten by this pattern. After this I named it. The fly works very well
on both floating and intermediate lines, especially in those rivers with intensive deep
tea colour of water. May I add that almost 100% of sea trout at that trip were caught by
this fly too.
