Frödinflies Sea Trout Spey Series - Ever since Mikael Frödin first wound a heron hackle he fell in love with the graceful Spey fly. The movement of the fibres and the translucent appearance gave the fly life. He is lucky enough to have caught salmon on Akroyds, Lady Carolines and Grey Herons. Classic flies that have a special magic to them. The new Sea Trout Spey Series are simpler but even more effective. Ever since Frödinflies' staff first saw a white heron hackle we wanted that Thunder Spey. Now 20 years later it has given so many memorable fish. On part of this series Frödinflies use the TTT to help open the material and create a nice drop shape. This series also have two zonkers. Cut with the right tapering and pimped with a lovely sweeping heron hackle they are truly irresistible. The last little fly is our shrimp. This little shrimp has proven effective both on the coast and for salmon and sea trout in clear rivers.

Black Doctor Spey
Frödinflies love the Doctor series, that little red on the head of the classics really appeals to them. This is a version that is best on low water and for the trickiest fish. The translucent appearance makes it suitable for difficult conditions. Colour wise it’s best on that cloudy day and perhaps to be fished in a pool where many fished before you. It’s different and effective.
Em Z Spey
The number one sea trout night fly. The phosphorescent details together with the broad profile gives it the key sea trout night fly appearance. Frödin loves the translucent fly, the fly that will blend in with the water. Sea trout take the fly from behind, well upmended the zonker gives a fat profile that the biggest trout just love.
Olive Z Spey
This is daytime sea trout zonker. The olive colour that really works so well in humus coloured rivers. The broad profile and the spey hackle to give life. A great fly for the Baltic sea trout – the biggest trout in the world. Also Tierra del Fuego trout go big and they love this little fat fly too.
Silver Doctor Spey
This is the sunshine doctor, a perfect fly on the “hopeless” sunny low water conditions that are so tricky. Dangle it in the head of the pool where the oxygen level is highest, this is often where the fish hide and where they gather enough interest to take a fly. Again, Frödin and his friends fish them small, very small, even tiny.
In a way this odd little fly can look quite like an ugly creature, but as we say the most beautiful fly is the one in the corner of the mouth of that desirable fish. Frödinflies staff have caught so many nice sea trout on this little shrimp. Mostly on the coast but also for the fresh run early running fat fish. The ostrich will slim down to a durable extremely lively looking hackle. Fish it slow it will be extremely seductive.
This is number one spey fly version. Frödin have fished it many years, both for salmon and sea trout. When the fish are tricky and demand a sparsely dressed fly nothing beats this. In the sun on the humus conditions it’s at its best. Frödinflies staff fish it small, even very small, down to one mm XS tube, but we think it’s absolutely perfect on the new TTT.
