As someone who is sold on the benefit of free swinging hook with tube flies I was interested to see @ 23:05 how he uses a loop knot.
Any clever folk on here doing similar? Does it only benefit feeler type flies or does it remain tangle free with longer soft winged tubes too?
That was a great 30 mins viewing that, very skilled angler and it must be great honing your skills over plenty fish. Not sure i would have been running down through some of that fast rushy water like, he deserved a dunking, dangerous stuff.
Antti is in the zone, Vision has a gem in its ranks with this guy, born beside his salmon. The knowledge he shares is vast but subtly hidden in every word he says, the clear line thing being one example. He was on Lakselv two months behind me (sorry, Antti, for giving it away),I landed a sealiced 20 from the other bank and lost a monster. He wouldn't have waded in from his bank when I was there, but he knows his rivers so well. Pity we didn't meet. He would have caught the monster.
