Semper fidelis (Latin pronunciation: [ˈsɛm.pɛr fɪˈdeː.lɪs]) is a Latin phrase that means "always faithful" or "always loyal". It is the motto of the United States Marine Corps usually shortened to Semper fi. It is also in use as a motto for towns, families, schools, and military units. When developing the materials we were developing specifically for fly tying and fly tyers. Hence the company name becoming Semperfli “always faithful, always fly”

Our R&D team and manufacturing teams are constantly reviewing the products and processes used to deliver the best quality fly tying materials in the market. Since inception we constantly work to improve everything we do. We have enhanced our spools developing removable caps to trap wires or threads to stop them unspooling. For partners we developed spool dispensers to make it easy to see what threads are in stock and easy to dispense for fly tyers. With our worldwide Pro Team and Ambassadors we are developing new materials that are specifically designed for fly tyers like Kapok Dubbing and Dirty Bug Yarn. Our team also took a serious look at tying materials that we loved working with such as Jungle Cock and, following our passion for innovation, developed substitutes for them. However materials are only part of the developments we perform. Our spooling equipment can spool more accurately with touching turns of any material to avoid “birds nests” or thread tangles to avoid wasted thread for the fly tyer. Our capacity has increased by 20x over the past 3 years with more increases already planned!. Finally innovation comes with our technology usage. We regularly do presentations and go lives. This includes go lives to South Africa to fly tying clubs using video conferencing to demonstrate fly tying and take questions making the world a much smaller place. The ability to challenge ourselves with our four cornerstone business principles of innovation, passion, quality and customer service are what makes Semperfli different!

Dirty Bug Yarn New Incredible blended match for naturals ____ Dual Stranded, Easily split for small flies

Amazing Match For Naturals Specially designed with a mix of natural and synthetic materials Dirty Bug Yarn was designed resulting from our work with different dubbings. We looked at dubbings in the market and realised many dubbings including our own different types of dubbings were often ‘single color’ dubbings. In reality if you look at a fly or nymph for example a baetis nymph it may be olive in colour but it is usually a mix of colors, nature is not monochromatic or single color. From this we had some of our Pro Team work on what we called ‘Dirty Dubbing’ or blends of colors to make a better fly body whether it be a dry or nymph. From that work Dirty Buy Yarn was born. We took a range of essential dubbing colors and blends suitable for specific families of flies like caddis.

Without doubt dubbing is one of the more difficult skills for fly tyers to learn. Because of this Semperfli developed its range of ‘dubbing on a rope’ products, ready made yarns which can simply be tied and wound onto a hook. Developed twin strands Dirty Bug Yarn can be used straight off the spool for larger flies or split into single strands for smaller flies. We have created a range of colors we feel stunning for both new fly tyers and skilled fly tyers alike.

____ 5m Per Spool ____ Dubbing On A Rope, Simply Tie in & Wrap ____

“Very special product that's almost TOO EASY to tie with” Tim Cammisa

Hints

1) Use straight off the spool or split into single strands for smaller flies 2) Twist Dirty Bug Yarn to form detached bodies

Braedan de Lange - “Had a chat to a mate the other day about kahawai feeding on the surface off the coast on shrimp and krill. So had to put some of the dirty bug yarn in shrimp colour to work with some foam and start exploring floating salt water flies. Kahawai are an incredible fish that fight incredibly hard so I am definitely looking forward to seeing how they respond to this fly. Figured Kahawai might be a bit foreign to those of you who haven't fished in NZ or Aussie. They're a fish that's a lot of fun to cast flies to and have definitely been a big part of my introduction to tying flies for the salt water.”

Kapok Dubbing New Highly buoyant ____ Deadly natural colors ____

Lifejackets For Dry Flies Kapok is the ultimate in dubbing, very buoyant and half the thickness of superfine dubbing. A natural hollow fibre when dubbed into split thread it retains its buoyancy and will help your dry flies float better than any other natural dubbing. Kapok (Ceiba pentandra) has been available for many years growing throughout the tropics where it is cultivated for its fibres. Kapok is a moisture-resistant, quickdrying, resilient, and buoyant fibre and weighs only one-eighth as much as cotton. Kapok has been used in life jackets and life boats, supporting as much as 30 times its own weight in water. Additionally with Kapok buoyancy is lost slowly, we have left it for days in test baths and it very slowly over days absorbs water.

Traditionally Kapok is very difficult to dye however the team at Semperfli have been working with computer based dying machinery which has enabled it to bulk dye Kapok with repeatable colours every time. Working with our Pro Team we defined a range of very natural / earthy dubbing colors to produce the best dry fly dubbing available in the market.

Computer controlled dying for outstanding colors ____ Specially dried to avoid tangled and clumped Kapok dubbing ____

Hollow natural fibres & unique dying process

Individual Kapok fibres are on average 1.8cm/0.7”, with diameters of 30 to 36 micrometres (a micrometre is about 0.00004 inch) making it finer than even the smallest superfine dubbing, indeed HALF the thickness of superfine dubbings

IMPORTANT

Dub with split threads to ensure hollow fibres are not crushed for maximum floatability Roy Ole Læhren Jakobsen Klinkhåmer - note the high floating position. This is after 40 minutes in the water with NO floatant added Page 24

Kapok is a natural hollow fibre used for dubbing fishing flies. However is must be dubbed correctly to maintain the hollow air gap which increases floatability. From Joachim "Before I cut it to a tapered body you see a swimming pupa and after trimming a typical tapered mayfly body. Always try to make fluffy bodies, never compact ones. Never apply kapok like an average dubbing, you will then loose the hydrophobic properties of the kapok - spin it! Never use gel floatants, however powder and Dry Magic is very good. I often mix my dubbings with kapok and it is a game changer on stream."

30m per spool The Semperfli R&D team fished created a 1/69”/0.37mm body material and decided on a range of deadly colours and triggers for our Perdigon Body material. Following fishing trials we decided on a range of iridescent and translucent colours that suited our Perdigon patterns and added in Fluoro & Luminous Perdigon Body tinsels that could be used for complete bodies or as highlight ribs to act as an additional trigger.

Gotta say I'm loving the perdigon body for the belly of these little whitebait patterns. Whitebait or at least the NZ whitebait are the juvenile form of our native galaxid species and the sea run trout. I've used the Iridescent Yellow Perdigon body for its belly while some SemperFlash Black Krinkle is being used to give the impression of the black markings they get down their side. These fish are almost eel like in appearance so with the rabbit fur wing and collar slicked back as being pulled through the water

A neat idea is to use a black permanent marker on the sides of the JC to make the feathers even more natural

Use a drop of UV Resin on the nail to give a 3D effect

Dry Fly Polyyarn New Floating Yarn ____ Dubbing On A Rope Product ____ 3.6m Per Spool ____

Highly Fibrous For Floatability

Nicknamed by fly tyers world wide the 'floating yarn'. With a very specific gravity / density of 0.91g/cm3 polypropylene yarn is lighter than water which means that it floats making it ideal for dry flies, most commonly used as parachute posts, and dubbing. Many companies claim to use polypropylene yarn however a simple test you can do at home to check if it is genuine polypropylene yarn is to cut a 1 inch / 25mm strip, scrunch it up in your fingers and drop it into a glass of water. If it is genuine polypropylene yarn then it should dip below the surface and then return to the surface. Indeed leave it for a day and it should still be floating as it is lighter than water and it is this property which makes it very, very special for dry flies.

Highly Buggy ____ Fibrous To Trap Air And Enhance Floatation

There are a few fly tying polyyarns on the market today from different companies. Indeed Semperfli makes two versions of polyyarn - the original Semperfli Polyyarn that comes on cards and is ideal for posts and wings and the new Dry Fly Polyyarn, a product on a spool which is intended for body and wings of flies or to create detached bodies

Floating gently in the surface film on stillwaters as trout cruise. Use 2 or 3 (preferably different sizes on droppers). Let them drift in the current or on a very still wind day, very very slowly lift your rod to 60 degrees over about 10 to 20 seconds. Drop your rod tip and take up the slack. Sometimes slight movement triggers the bites!

“This afternoon my husband told me that he need some fresh air. Perfect, we will go fishing and you can test my new fly. He loves dry flies and is very critical with my patterns. After about 2 hours on the water I asked my husband for his opinion and he was thrilled. The fly still swims perfectly, only a few dry casts and apart from some CDC oil he didn't need anything He said that this was the most buoyant fly of its kind that I tied to him. See the fly after 20 Trout on video!”

Working with our Pro Tyers we hank 300 strands of these materials in 10” / 25cm long hanks tied at the top rather than center tied unlike many hanked materials. With full useable length of 10” strands these can be used to create flies from the smallest chironomid/buzzer breathers to huge Tarpon or Muskie flies using the full 10” length of this amazing winging material

An amazing blend of multicolor strands of tinsel where one strand has multiple colors on each strand blended with highlighter or background colours for different effects.

Peccary Quill Subs

At Semperfli we love tying with Peccary, however it is a pain to use having to soak it and getting hold of it is often a problem, certainly getting hold of quality Peccary has become difficult. So we decided to make a synthetic Peccary. We developed it in 0.4mm for small (#12 and below) and 1mm perfect down to size #14. We then looked at what people had done with Peccary coloring the white and decided to make a Transparent Peccary, identical to our True Peccary but transparent where the Peccary white coloration occurs. This Transparent Peccary allows anything below the Quill to show through, from threads to tinsels will shine through as you see on the photo below. 

25 Quills per pack

100mm length quills (you can get 2 flies per quill depending on fly size)

I am Sebastian Pagano from San Luis pronvice, Argentina, but I was born in Mendoza province and now live in San Luis province of Argentina. I have been married for 3 years, but I have lived with my wife, Virginia, for about 16 years. We have a girl, Anita, who is 4 years old Virginia does not like to fish, but I have to admit that she is a great companion, without her help and collaboration all this would be impossible I started fly tying more than 20 years ago, when I was 13 years old. I still have the bobbin that my parents gave me, and still today use it to tie all my flies. Fly tying and fly fishing itself is a way of life for me. I can spend hours at my tying table, from when I think about something, until I manage to develop it, many things happen, even new patterns emerge. I am a Certified Fly Casting Instructor by Argentine Fly Fishing Association. I dedicate part of my life to tying and teaching fly fishing. My specialties are fly fishing for carp and trout with Euronymph techniques and dry flies. In fly tying, I specialize in realistic flies, nymphs, and carp flies, although I try to vary my tying. My day job is a doctor in Geology. For this I had 11 years studying and research. I dedicated myself to researching minerals and rocks with a very particular composition. I am currently a teacher and researcher in the Geology department of the National University of San Luis where I teach and research. I have published some articles in international magazines. Geology helped me understand aquatic ecosystems, because it is a fundamental component of them, I have written some articles and teach it. Today I find myself investigating the rivers I go to frequently. How the physical-chemical conditions of the water influence the feeding of the fish and how the morphology of the river influences the behavior of the fish.

I started fishing from a very young age, at about 4 years old, in a small mountain stream, in a place that I keep in my soul, “El Manzano Histórico”, in the Mendoza province, in the heart of the Andes Mountains. We used to go on family holidays, and while my mom and brother waited for us at the campsite, my father and myself went to the river to fish. We did not know about fly fishing back then. We hooked grasshoppers and threw them into the river, hopefully we caught one or two rainbow trout. I still remember the smell of the countryside, the noise of the “Las Pircas” stream and the cold water. I watched fly fishing on TV and it caught my attention. When I turned 13, my parents paid me for a fly fishing course, in the first fly shop in Mendoza, Mendoza Fly Shop, by Benito and Pablo Perez. I exchanged the bait for flies and started fishing quite frequently in other streams and rivers. These were unforgettable years for me. We fished with my father's friends, one of them became an adopted father to me, Luis Peña "el Loco" because he was really crazy! He taught me a lot about trout fishing, but I was very young and not very successful, and paradoxically I feel the very my first fly trout was on vacation, in a stream in the San Luis mountains. At that time we got to know what for me is one of the most beautiful places, Valle Hermoso, also in the province of act of tying Mendoza. a place that marked my children, and my whole life.

generates creativity Page 140

From the beginning fly tying seemed incredible to me. In those years I met a great friend, Leo Rodriguez, who was my teacher in that course. At the same time, another friend, Heber Version Fall 2020-2021 Copyright © Semperfli


Crespo, a neighbour, taught me to tie my first flies. Those flies were really ugly. I was always very curious and before learning to properly tie a Wolly Buggers. Self taught from experimenting, reading books to learning Classic Atlantic Salmon Flies. Tried only once to tie salmon flies and enjoyed realistic flies much more. Five years later I got a job as a fly tyer in a fishing and mountaineering business in Mendoza, where my friend Hernan Ortega helped me improve my flies. I worked for a few years there. I then decided to concentrated on studying Geological Sciences, although I always had time for tying and fishing for relaxation. Living in San Luis I started fishing in different places in the San Luis mountains. I became interested in fly carp fishing and began to investigate this species deeply, until I understood what this incredible fishing was like. In this sense I had the help of a great friend, a reference in fly carp fishing in Argentina, Diego Gustavo Flores, who made me participate in his book on carp fishing in Argentina "Tabu with scales" in 2016. One day I read an article by a renowned fly tyer, Lucas Utrera, in Linea 4 magazine. “Realism manages to That day I realized that there was something called a realistic fly. I kept thinking about how to make a realistic flies. Somehow, Lucas taught me how to tie a realistic, I get me out of the figured out how to make simple legs. I started tying realistic flies without wings, until one day at work I scratched a plastic bag with a needle and figured out how to make everyday, it takes me wings. From that to another world” moment I couldn't stop anymore. On 2008 I presented my first realistic fly at Wine and Fly Event in Mendoza, (Mendoza is recognized worldwide for its wines). In that event, I met renowned fishing instructors, who in the future would become my teachers. Realistic fly tying manages to get me out of the “everyday”. It takes me to another world. Each realistic fly is a challenge for me, no two flies are alike. Sometimes I use common techniques, but each time many times new things emerge, which I then apply to the flies for fishing.

There is no such thing as research for realistic flies, I do not look for a recipe. I look for many photos of an insect, looking at it from many different perspectives and I create a recipe to achieve ways of tying a fly to realistically match it. It will take me many more hours to think about the recipe in how to achieve it, than to tie actually tie the fly! Version Fall 2020-2021 Copyright © Semperfli

I started fishing for pleasure, however in 2017 it became a true passion …..I began to work hard to get certified as an instructor. Page 141


I started fishing for pleasure, however in 2017 it became a true passion. My teaching vocation was awakened and I began to work hard to get certified as an instructor. Take classes with two instructors recognized in Argentina, Fernando Mosso and Exequiel Bustos, both certified by the FFF. I prepared to take an instructor exam at the Argentine Fly Fishing Association, "Mel Krieger-AAPM Certified Fly Casting instructor", and in 2019, I took it and passed it. Around the same time he started with European competition techniques. Since 2017 I took some training, first with my friend Javier García de Mendoza, then with Fernando Mosso from Argentina (who is an instructor of European techniques), and in 2020 with the Spanish David García Ferreras, world champion in salmonid fishing in 2018 and runner-up in 2019. In 2018 I also started to deliver training at the river on fly carp fishing, something that is growing year after year. Both tying and fly fishing, for me, it is also studying, researching and taking potos, I love taking photos, and although I am not a professional I try to take care of many details. For my photography I have two Nikon cameras, a D7000 that I use for outdoor photography and a compact P510 that I use for the lab and tying table. As for the configurations, I vary a bit, depending on the backgrounds and the colors of the flies. On my fishing trips, my rod, my flies and my camera accompany me.

Carp have positioned themselves as the third fish in terms of importance for fly-fishing in Argentina.

Argentina is an extensive country with multiple scenarios, ecosystems and a very varied geography. We have jungles, forests, mountains, pampas with grasslands and more. Each of these environments offers different scenarios and different fish for fly fishing. We can fish "Dorados" in the north of Argentina, Trouts in the mountains, Hoplia in the pampas, Carp and silversides in different regions of the country (Sierras, Pampa, Patagonia), snook, silverside, sole and other sea fish along along the entire coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Patagonia is known for its trout fishing. The big brown trout from the Limay river, The huge sea trout from Tierra del Fuego, the big rainbow from Lake Strobel and the Barrancoso river, the Steel Head from the Santa Cruz river. On the opposite side of Argentina, to the center and north, we have the Dorado, very aggressive attracting the attention of many fishermen. I have some places hidden deep in my heart, one is the Valle Hermoso, a valley located in the center of the Andes mountain range, a paradise for trout fishing. Another, my dear Rio Quinto, in San Luis, my favorite place for carp fishing. Page 142

if you want to fish carp with light equipment and in transparent waters, well you have to come to visit me in San Luis. Carp, although often criticized by fly fishermen, are gaining strength and in recent years, in my opinion, they have positioned themselves as the third fish in terms of importance for fly-fishing in Argentina. I focus on fishing for trout and carp. I have fished silversides and snook in the ocean, in Patagonia; also Hoplias in a lagoon of the pampa, in the south of the province of Córdoba. My particular preference is rivers and streams. I like to explore and find this type of environment with transparent waters. I get my greatest fishing pleasure when I to spot a fish, stalk it and controlling my flies catch it! If you want to fish very large trout with heavy equipment, you have to go to Tierra del Fuego, or the Limay River in Patagonia. If you want to fish beautiful trout with light equipment, small nymphs or Self taught from dry fly, you have to go to the legendary Malleo river, to the rivers experimenting, of the north of Patagonia or south of Mendoza. You can also do very fine reading books and delicate fishing in the rivers and to learning streams of the San Luis and Córdoba mountains, in the center of the Classic Atlantic country. If you want to fish Dorados, well, you have to visit the Paraná Salmon Flies river basin, if you want to fish big carp, you will have to travel to the Negro River in Patagonia, and if you want to fish carp with light equipment and in transparent waters, well you have to come to visit me in San Luis. Over the years I met many fly fishing and fly tying friends, they all left me a lessons and If you want to fish memories, some for carp with light marked me equipment in more than others, each of them knows what they contributed. I do not transparent waters, want to forget any of them, so I prefer not to mention them, however I will thank them forever. I have some tyers I reference in the fly tying, you have to go to some of them are my friends, from Argentina are: Marcelo Ziegler, visit Sebastian in Ruben Martin, Marcelo Morales, Sergio Córdoba, Lucas Utrera, Marcelo Malventano. From the rest of the world: Juan Carlos Cambronero San Luis. Follow his Gonzales, Bill Logan, Hugo Harlin, Pasi Järvinen, Graham Owen, Fran amazing fly tying on social media Peral, Javier Peña, and really the all fly tyers on the Semperfli Pro Team, at the addresses below: are references for me, to mention just a few! . Given a free choice I would love to visit New Zealand fishing for Trout. I think it is a paradise for the type of fishing I like the most, using nymphs and dry flies. As for carp and barbel, I would like to go fishing in Spain! Really for me, it is a very fun world, a game, I still feel like a child. Version Fall 2020-2021 Copyright © Semperfli

We have invested a huge sum in our manufacturing facilities over the past years. We are particularly proud of our spooling equipment. As material geeks we wanted the absolute best to manufacture our threads so that it avoids “bird nesting” meaning you get half way down a spool and the thread gets trapped by itself and you end up throwing it away and by over twisting threads which can lead to weakening. Our equipment is so highly configured we can specify the width of the material being tied and it can perform touching turns which is why the quality of our spooling is significantly better than most material manufacturer in the market.

Semperfli Classic Waxed Threads (CWT) took over 2 years development from initial concept to final manufacturing. Fly tyers used Nano Silk world wide and it is regarded as one of the best high strength threads made from GSP (Gel Spun Polyethylene) on the market. However many of our Pro Team and Ambassadors requested a standard polyester thread for their daily fly tying requirements. As a team we examined the competitive polyester threads on the market. Some threads were tightly bonded and consequently very difficult to split and difficult to lay flat. Some threads were too heavily waxed and jammed up bobbins and some too lightly waxed or unwaxed and of course wax can help stop materials moving as we are tying our flies. We then checked thread sizes and found the market confusing, we measured the diameters and breaking strains of threads and found that some manufacturers had threads in many different aught ( / 0) sizes which actually had the same diameter and breaking strain. It led the team to question actually was this the same thread just advertised differently to get shops and fly tyers to buy more thread thinking they were getting something different. Next we looked at the commercial issues of threads, some suppliers put 50m, some 100m and some 200m of thread on a spool.

The R&D team defined that the thread must: 

lay flatter than most polyester threads on the market

be better quality and easy to split

available in a large range of natural and attractor colors

better value to fly tyers and shops having more thread on a spool

have high strength

The R&D team at Semperfli took all of its knowledge from Nano Silk and applied this to the development of CWT. Nano Silk and CWT are extruded like spaghetti. The trick comes to how these thin strands are bound together to form the final thread. We bound the thread into 2 strands which are lightly bonded (glued together) and those strands lightly twisted. We used about 30% less twist than some of the manufacturers as this made a thread that laid flatter on the hook and would also split easily. Next we worked with two of our incredible Ambassadors on the wax content to get this right. Paul Procter came up with a very neat test. We had to apply the wax so that our thread would hold with the same or one less turn of thread on the hook. With a flat thread and wax we worked to minimise the wax and maximise the thread grip. After 20 months we had finished our prototypes and developed our threads. We sent the Pro Team samples of the CWT at our Annual Fly Jam conference where worldwide our team review potential future products. It is fair to say that the CWT samples caused a stir, everyone was amazed and delighted with the prototype products. However we still had a concern within the Semperfli management team. If the thread was taken up as much as we anticipated it could impact our manufacturing capabilities so over a period of 4 months we increased our manufacturing capabilities by 3x. As a professional business we have a business plan and have targets for each product. Our concerns over take up were right. Within the first 3 months we sold the first years anticipated sales volumes of CWT and it continued to explode worldwide. Indeed now our favorite game is working with fly tyers at shows and exhibitions worldwide and getting them tying with CWT. The results have been fantastic with many of the worlds top fly tyers using CWT. We have seen top tyers who have used threads from one manufacturer for 30 years throw away their entire stock to move to CWT. The biggest joy was watching the Norwegian Speed Fly tying championships. Here they must tie 6 supa pupa flies. The 2 top tyers were using CWT and another high volume polyester thread from another manufacturer. The person using CWT won as the thread from the other manufacturer broke. The 8/0 from Semperfli is 40% stronger than that manufacturers 8/0 thread! All the hard work in developing a new thread had been worth it. Version Fall 2020-2021 Copyright © Semperfli

I grew up in a small place called Meldal in the middle of Norway. This is a place with lots of mountains and nature around. My parents spent lots of time with me in the natural envoronment, teaching me how to live in a tent, hunting and fishing for food. In Meldal we also have the world-famous salmon river Orkla. Here I came in touch with the first fly -fishermen, using double handed rods and beautiful flies. I was very curious about this fishing, and even as a kid, I understood that fishing was much more than catching food. Then I started to read about fly fishing. Technical books from England, and romantic books written by Hans Lidman from Sweden. I understood that if I should become a fly fisher, it was trout fishing that were the important thing for me to focus my skills upon.

I understood that if I should become a fly fisher, it was trout fishing that were the right thing for me

I started my fly-fishing career at the age of 13. That winter I tied hundreds of flies, and I learnt it from English books. The next summer I caught my first trout on a dry Coachman, size 12. I remember it as if it was yesterday.

I was very curious about this fishing, and even as a kid, I understood that fishing was much more than catching food

I really had a hard time to develop myself as a fly fisherman. There was no fishing clubs or experienced fly fishers in my area. Locally salmon were the only species that mattered. I thought that trout fishing with fly was so much fun and so important, that I recruited almost all my friends. Together we practiced a lot. Three of us have had fly fishing as full time jobs later in our careers, – Trond and Knut Syrstad that became salmon fishermen and myself, that focused on trout fishing. I cannot think of a better way to become a fly fisher, or a better way to grow up than this. Hard work, never giving up.

At the age of 15, I bought my first high-end flyrod, it was a Hardy rod with a Hardy Perfect reel. Fly fishing became more and more important in my life. Fishing in the summertime and tying flies during the winter. I did a lot of hiking in the mountains the next years, 3-4 weeks crossing the northern parts of Norway as an example, only with what I had in my backpack. The main reason was to see new mountain areas, as Hans Lidman did in his books, and to hunt for big trout. My tent and my camera were as important as the fly rod. My biggest idol at that time and fly fisherman that influenced me was Ole Johan Sætre, who made fly fishing for trout sound very important, even in this “salmon infected” part of Norway were I live. And Pål Krogvold with his books, where imitations of insects and knowledge about them came into my life. Staffan Lindstrøm was also an influence, with his fly-tying style that focused on movement and “life” in the flies. It was also he who really taught me the I really had a hard time to importance of releasing the biggest trout. 1994, at the age of 25, was a turning point for me as a fly fisher. In everybody’s life there are a few dramatic experiences. And after living on a cloud for 25 years, my wife and I suddenly got a telephone at work, and the message was that our house had burnt down to the ground. It was right before Christmas. Our first kid – Eirik – was one year old. We had no home or no clothes. And I had no fly-fishing equipment and no fly-tying equipment either. At that time, I came in touch with the man who has

been most important to my fly-fishing lifestyle – Arild Snekkenes. He was at that time the founder of Guideline, and brand that he built from scratch. In addition, he imported rods from G. Loomis. He wanted to help me with new flyfishing equipment after the fire. At that point, I had been giving lot of fly castingand fly-tying courses, and I began giving talks at fishing clubs during wintertime. When I entered the power team of Guideline, I teamed up with Trond and Knut that I knew from my childhood. They were only doing fly fishing for salmon at this point, and Knut was already one of the best fly casters in the world. I learned a lot. I could fish with lots of different equipment. To develop the fly-casting skills were very important for some years. I fished with top action rods like the G. Loomis GLX#5. Rods that I really do not like nowadays, but they helped me to be a better fly caster. In Guideline, I got to work with many extremely clever fly fishers, both fly casters and fly tiers. I was able to travel around Norway and meet fly fishers in every corner of the country. Again, I learned a lot. I also had the possibility to try a lot of different equipment, and be a part of the development of new equipment. I do not like to brag about myself. But I think that I have the gift that I sometimes can think a bit outside the box, and I think new thoughts. Maybe it is because I am curious? Maybe it is because of my mathematical thinking? In Guideline, that fantastic person Arild Snekkenes believed in me. He listened until I had convinced him. I got him to change the action of the Guideline trout rods. Guideline were more important to me, than G. Loomis. I was able to design fly lines. Among others, the Guideline Presentation and Guideline Highwater were my designs. They became very important in Scandinavia and the tapers are still copied by several other brands. Guideline was at that time the most important fly-tying dealer in Norway. I could get Metz to make just the right coloured grizzle capes to imitate Norwegian mayflies. I was a part of making a superfine dubbing to match the hatch in Norway. In 2009 the second dramatic happening in my life entered. My wife got cancer. My life really changed when I got the news. Arild Snekkenes was not longer a part of the Guideline, and I quit the cooperation with them. All my focus was on the family. We had built our cabin, and we used a lot of time there between the medication. I wrote my first book, «A fishing summer», in that cabin. Luckily, my wife fought the cancer, and I could move on.

I suddenly got a telephone at work, and the message was that our house had burnt down to the ground. It was right before Christmas. Our first kid – Eirik – was one year old. We had no home or no clothes. And I had no fly-fishing equipment and no fly-tying equipment either.

Page 147


At the same time, Trond Syrstad had built the LTS brand and moved it to Norway. He asked if I could cooperate with him and develop really good trout rods. I designed the LTS Ephemera rod and Ephemera WF line exactly like I wanted them, an again, I got the chance to meet a lot of good fly fishers that influenced me. For several years, I have been travelling around and fishing in rivers during mayfly hatches, but I have of course done other fishing like stillwater fishing, salmon fishing, grayling fishing and saltwater fishing, but the rivers in Norway were important to me. The last years it has been more and more about high mountain fishing, the nature and the scenery is important. I understood that the stuff I dreamt about during the long, Norwegian winter, was exactly what I should do during summer. I do not go for all those big fish anymore. It’s more important with the trip, the fishing buddies and my dog, and it has given me new challenges. I have been studying the fish more, and how it behaves when it’s feeding. Mainly, I have been doing these studies on mountain trout and the arctic char, they are my number one trophies. I have realized that in the mountains, the midge and caddis are much more important than the mayflies.

My wife got cancer. My life really changed when I got the news. ….. All my focus was on the family. We had built our cabin ….. I wrote my first book, «A fishing summer», in that cabin. Luckily, my wife fought the cancer, and I could move on. I am a very curious fly fisher. I think that I am not really very good at anything. There are thousands of better fly casters and fly tiers than me, but I think I am very good at innovating my own fly-fishing. I do not only copy what I read or what I see others do. I want to experience it myself. That is why I want to know what fly-tying materials are made of and how they perform. I do not want to believe how a pupa behaves under water, I need to see it for myself. I think that I am one of a few that pack flippers and googles in my backpack when I hike in the mountains, just to do underwater studies of hatching insects. I do not have

Page 148

to catch every fish anymore. It is equally important to do studies on fish behaviour and their food sources. Everything I see or experience, gives me new thoughts and ideas. Sometimes it results in a new fly pattern that is more effective, new use of fly tying materials, or a new way to fish the fly. Several of my patterns are produced by Umpqua because of this work. I consider myself more as a fly tier than a fly fisher. Fly tying season is twelve months a year whereas fly fishing only six. I always seek for better fly tying materials that can help me making - not prettier flies, but flies that are more «fishy». Movement, behaviour and silhouette are much more important than details and how the fly looks on a perfect picture. My mission is to fool the trout, not to impress them. I like to imitate trout food, the way the trout see it. Just watch a scud in your hand, it’s very much curved, but if you look at it swimming in a glass of water, it’s pretty much straight. It is only then you of course understand your job behind the tying vise. When I became a Proteam fly-tier at Semperfli in 2018 the fly-tying became even more important for me. Just like when I met Arild Snekkenes, I have now got to know Andy, Ann and the Semperfli team and feel it is a perfect organisation for me to work with. Like me, they are always curious, and striving to make things even better. I feel that I am not only a person to make the products existing improve. They want my thoughts, my ideas, and they importantly they believe in me. And again, I get to learn from extremely good fishers and fly tiers, now worldwide, and I have an organisation that can help me to make things happen. Just like Arild in the 90`s Ann and Andy are caring about me as a person, not only as Proteam member. My third dramatic happening in my life was last year in 2019. My wife got that damn cancer for the second time, and again I had to use all my energy on the family. I quit LTS, but not Semperfli where Ann and Andy have been one of the strongest supporters for my wife and me through the last year. Flytying and Semperfli are important parts I think that I am one of of my life and lifestyle.

a few that pack flippers and googles in my backpack when I hike in the mountains, just to do underwater studies of hatching insects

I will develop and tie new flies for years onwards, just to copy a fly is boring. To develop new ways to tie a fly is satisfying.

I have mentioned some important persons that have had lots of impact on me as a fly fisher and fly tier. I also need to mention some more of those. My biggest critics, my best fishing friends, Rune Stafne, Bjørn Tore Hoel and Tore Fossmo that allow me to talk about fish 365 days a year. The last years Tore Litlere Rydgren has come into my life, challenging me with a whole lot of new thoughts and techniques, and of course I have to mention my wife, Lisbeth, that has accepted that dubbing and feathers are a natural part of every holiday and every dinner. I hope to meet every one of you in the future, during one of my talks, on a fly fishing event, on a fishing trip or on the social media, discussing fly fishing. Fly tying is all about fly fishing.

An incredible talent and delightful man Bjørnar is a font of knowledge. Any fly tyer that takes flippers and goggles fishing to study hatching insects underwater should be followed.

Amazing Strength

Hints If you rotate Nano Silk anti clockwise to untwist (it has 100 twists per meter to keep the thread together) it will lay perfectly flat, it can be used for foam or split for a dubbing loop with a fine needle.

Use with ceramic bobbins Nano Silk is regarded as the tying thread of choice of professional fly tyers worldwide. Being so super strong and available in such a variety of colors and deniers it has endless possibilities and can be used for micro flies to large flies. Virtually unbreakable and still capable of being split down for dubbing twists. There is no fly tying thread as strong as Nano Silk anywhere. Because Nano Silk lays perfectly flat you get no thread build up. Indeed check out our Youtube video where we put 100 wraps on a thread and you still have no head buildup! With Nano Silk you will have confidence that even the smallest of flies can be tied without your thread breaking! Strength 10 times stronger than high quality stainless steel of same diameter. Must be used with ceramic bobbin holders

White Nano Silk can be dyed with a simple permanent marker pen for any color you may desire. Alternatively, the last 4” 100mm can be colored with a marker pen for a head. As with ALL GSP type threads Nano Silk must be used with a ceramic bobbin holder. use a craft blade or razor blade to cut Nano Silk. It is extremely tough, please don’t use your best scissors!

When Tom joined the Semperfli Pro Team we were absolutely delighted. Not only was his tying incredible he added significantly to the team, working with us to develop materials and help us improve what we offer for the Classic Salmon and Artistic Fly Markets.

Tom Herr

For the past 50 years Tom has enjoyed the passion of fly-fishing and fly tying. Casting a fly rod has taken him to locations such Alaska, the Florida Keys, Montana, Maine, New Brunswick, and also in his home waters of Pennsylvania where the spring creeks are some of the most challenging fisheries in the world. Tom will often be off fishing with his wife, Kathy who shares his passion for fly-fishing with him. Tom’s interest in fishing started as a very young boy of five or six. He grew up in a midsized community in southeastern Pennsylvania; USA that was surrounded by gently rolling Amish farm country, and a strong work ethic was constantly instilled in him as he grew. Tom’s father worked in a foundry as a molder and spent hard days in intense heat perfecting his craft, but he still found time to share his love of the outdoors with Tom. He loved fishing, and when he and his father were not along the stream or the lake, Tom can remember looking forward to the rain showers that would come because of the puddles they would create at the end of their driveway. Tom would find a stick and some fishing line and cast into that pool of water, imagining he was doing the real thing. The garden hose was a wonderful tool for him to use as well because he would hook it up to the outside faucet, lay it out on the lawn, turn the water on and create a stream underneath the maple tree where he could create the perfect current complete with eddies and structures that he was absolutely sure concealed imaginary fish. It wasn't until Tom became a teenager of 13 years old that he had read about fly-fishing in one of the outdoor magazines that was always in the magazine rack next to his father's easy chair. This new facet of the sport intrigued him and he immediately learned all he could about it - especially the tying. Tom remembers stealing thread from his mother’s sewing kit and using the instructions in one of those magazines to tie his first fly by holding the hook in his hand without the use of a vice. e his first fly Tom continued tying in hand until he graduated to placing using the a hook in an old iron vise that instructions in one was bolted to his father’s workbench. He purchased his of those first actual fly tying vise at the local sportsman's store magazines to tie around the age of 16 - a his first fly in his Thompson for about $16 and tied with it for the next hand 15 years, sending away for replacement parts as they wore out. Early on, materials came from pheasants bagged during small-game hunting seasons, and he learned quickly that getting paid three dollars for mowing his grandmother’s lawn would give him enough money to purchase two boxes of Mustad hooks and maybe have enough left over to pick up some tying thread so his mother would not miss those spools out of her sewing kit.

Soon, he began purchasing materials from catalogs and experimenting with all the various materials that could be found in them. Never having a mentor or a teacher he learned how to flatten the rachis of a feather so that it lies on the hook without a twist and to collapse a carefully married wing with the absolute correct thread tension by trial and error. Tom simply wasn’t aware of anyone in my community who tied, although he guesses he always had been one who needs to learn on his own anyway. It wasn't until Tom was in his early forties that he began to learn the tying methods surrounding the classic Atlantic salmon fly. Still not having a mentor that he could rely on to guide him, he turned to books and the Internet. Along the way, there were materials that Page 166

Version Fall 2020-2021 Copyright © Semperfli


were wasted, especially when a tie involved the married wing. Tom learned to build the wings but it took some time to learn the set. Tom tried everything, but eventually learned the correct thread tension to use, how to hold the wings in his fingers with the correct pressure and, after much trial and error, he was able to set a pair of wings with acceptable results. The materials and techniques used in Self taught from tying the Classic Atlantic fly patterns are somewhat unique within the tying experimenting, community. While many ties that are completed for actual fishing situations reading books may contain 4 to 8 tying steps, the to learning classic pattern may contain dozens of steps, which results in quite often the Classic Atlantic need for proper planning of the tie. Once Tom's skills developed to the point where he felt confident of his results with the classic Salmon Flies patterns of the salmon fly, he felt a need to open up his mind and think outside of the box in designing ties that were unique. This design process often involves a certain instance or inspiration that has occurred in Tom's life. In turn, he thinks of how he can design a tie to reflect that certain moment in time and that often starts as a pencil drawing. Tom is quick to mention that he is not skilled in drawing as an art form but this does give him a visual reflection of the end result that he wishes to accomplish. It is this freedom that he realizes, away from a written guideline of materials to be used in a finished tie that is the thing that gives Tom most pleasure. What excites him most about what he does is that - although he has been tying for over 50 years now, each time he sits down to design a new tie - he learns something new about how the design should flow with the materials that he plans to use. Being born with a color blindness deficiency in many of the major color spectrums, he recognizes the need to remember that in choosing what materials he uses to assure that it all flows evenly throughout. This was a major learning curve for him as he has studied patterns that others have completed and noted what materials they used. And these are the guidelines that he uses in design. There are times though, Tom places a hook in his vice with no particular direction in mind and he asks himself "Where are we going to go today?" And the design occurs as he moves along the hook shank, in hopes that he arrives at the destination he was looking for and referring to his wife, Kathy for input of color selection within the design. Tom has also taught himself the techniques of framing and matting for the flies that he completes. This gives him the freedom of creating a very unique product for giving to others.

Using what he learned, he has had what he considers an extreme honor and privilege to present his framed ties to various organizations such as the American Cancer Society, the Acton Against Hunger organization, Casting For Recovery, Project Healing Waters, the National Wild Turkey Federation, as well as the families and service men and women of several members of the American military. Although each and every one of the ties that he has donated holds a special place in his heart, he mentions that it is the presentations that he makes to the families and veterans who have served our country that truly hold special meaning to him. As he mentions "They willingly leave the peaceful surroundings of their homes to protect our freedom, at times with great cost." When he was young, his father told him that "If we have a gift that we can utilize to soften and ease the memory of a difficult time someone may be experiencing, why would we not use our gift towards that purpose? " That comment is something he has not forgotten. Each time he sets out to do a project to benefit or recognize an individual or an organization, there is always some type of inspiration involved. An example of this inspiration involves a tie and frame he completed to benefit Project Healing Waters. He already had about 6 hours invested in the tie and was about a third of the way completed with it when he woke up one morning, turned on the news and saw the coverage that was being reported on the shooting that occurred in Parkland High School, Florida USA. He was so struck by the news that his inspiration for his project changed. He took a razor blade to the tie and stripped everything off of the 6/0 hook shank and started over. There are 39 individual "curls" (barbs of red, white, and blue dyed turkey) that were tied in representing each of the 39 individuals who were either injured or lost their lives in that shooting. The completed tie and frame was donated to PHW for auction. Over the past few years he has become involved with a local chapter of Trout Unlimited - the Donegal Chapter. Within that chapter is a Veterans Service Partnership where local veterans meet twice a month to learn about fly tying and fly-fishing. They also have outings related to fly-fishing on a Tom has been part monthly basis. The VSP program serves veterans locally and through it's leadership within the organization, has become quite successful and has allowed him to share of a fundraising moments on the stream and in meetings that have created special moments and effort to send a memories for him. He has seen the direct benefits that the program delivers to those involved. Tom has been part of a fundraising effort to raise the necessary dollars to send group of these a group of these veterans to the state of Montana, USA on a week long fly fishing trip of a lifetime for these individuals. This is just one more example of his involvement in veterans a week programs that he is passionate about which gives him the opportunity to give back long fly fishing trip through his tying.

of a lifetime for these individuals

When the question of what attracts Semperfli products to his tying bench is asked of him, he replies that there are a number of reasons that he feels strongly about the Semperfli organization. " I've always felt that success in any type of business, whether it be the

Version Fall 2020-2021 Copyright Š Semperfli


coffee shop down the road or a major corporation that is involved globally, the fundamental point that needs to be maintained throughout the organization is one of openness and the sense of a family atmosphere. In today's business environment, that is increasingly hard to find in our corporations but within Semperfli - that is their core value and is often mentioned to their employees, their pro tyers and their customers. In addition to that, it is also important to constantly push the boundaries of the product you are offering, constantly looking for ways to improve, to offer something new. Again - that is what Semperfli does very well and is always looking to their customers and pro tyers for input. All this gives a sense of ownership to all involved. And in the end - what they continue to do is what I feel is offer the very best products to the tyers who utilize what they produce. Quite simply - Semperfli is a wonderful organization that I am I feel the very proud to be part of. "

act of tying generates creativity

When Tom looks back on the past 50 years of his time at the tying bench, he is quick to mention about the changes he has seen and the evolution of the craft. From the days of tying in hand as a young boy with the materials he stole from his mothers knitting basket and the feathers plucked from the pheasants he and his father shot during hunting season to today where synthetic materials have evolved to successfully imitate the natural movements of baitfish and insect life - he is quick to mention what tying has meant to him throughout his life. "I feel the very act of tying generates creativity. The path that one can travel while at the vice is endless and whether you follow a tying pattern that has been established through generations or you create something totally unique and different, I feel that it truly is up to you, the individual. Tying is no different from the artist who paints or the sculptor who molds clay. It is a craft that is learned and refined through trial and error, which with time, produces a result that the tyer can be proud of." As mentioned, Tom has been involved in giving back to the following organizations by presenting his framed ties to Project Healing Waters, Casting For Recovery, Trout Unlimited Veterans Service Partnership, American Cancer Society, the Acton Against Hunger An incredible talent organization, National Wild Turkey Federation, and various private generous of his time and individuals who have served in the military or have suffered through the effort. Please Help Tom rigors of cancer. He also has been a guest tyer at the International Fly and get a calendar to Tying Symposium in the United Sates, has represented the United States help his work with at the 2018 Atlantic Salmon Fly International Expo in New Brunswick, Donegal Chapter of Canada, and is currently on the organizing committee for the 2021 Trout Unlimited Atlantic Salmon Fly International Expo in Syracuse, New York USA in Veterans Service September.

Nano Silk is an extruded Gel Spun Polyethylene with some secret ingredients which improve its strength adding to the Nano Silk difference. Extrusion of GSP threads is much like spaghetti making, the “dough” in this case polyethylene is pushed through micro fine holes and stretched. In exactly the same way we can go into supermarkets and purchase the value ranges of spaghetti made with standard flour and the quality spaghetti made with high-protein, finely milled "00" flour which is used by top chefs to produce the top spaghetti. It is the top quality ingredients that are combined with our highest quality polyethylene that gives Nano Silk its additional strength over other GSP manufacturers. In Nano Silk you will find multiple strands of ultra fine GSP (17 micro fine strands in the case of 12/0) which lay perfectly flat.

Like all GSP based threads Nano Silk should always be used with a ceramic bobbin holder. This is because the steel and brass of standard bobbin holders have micro sharp surfaces internally that can cut Nano Silk.

Like All GSP threads Nano Silk is a “slippy” material. Use softer waxes, there are many available in the market.

Nano Silk is strong and harder than any traditional fly tying polyester and rayon threads Because of its strength it should not be cut with your scissors as it will make them blunt over time. Indeed the best way of protecting your scissor investment is to keep a craft knife or single bladed razor at the side of your vice where it can be used to cut Nano Silk and other tough materials with the added advantage you can get in even closer than with even good quality arrow point scissors.

Nano Silk is fantastic for the creation of dubbing loops to add dubbing to fly bodies. Simply form a loop of thread and use with your dubbing twister or split the Nano Silk and finely thread the dubbing and spin to trap the dubbing to add for your fly. Check Paul Procter’s excellent tips video.

With Nano Silk thread build up is never an issue even on the smallest of flies. Check out our video where we wind 50 Denier 12/0 Nano Silk 100 times around the same small fly hook and there is no build up whatsoever. With Nano Silk you can be confident that the thread will not snap with a strength almost 4x more than traditional threads like Uni 8/0 with no difference in thread build up.

Jon Strand illustrates the difference in head buildup from standard 8/0 thread to Semperfli Nano Silk 18/0 on a Classic Salmon Fly. Remember there is now Nano Silk 20D which is 33% SMALLER than the 18/0 used above!!!

Nano Silk takes permanent marker pens. Some people use white Nano Silk and simply use pens like other permanent ink marker pens to color heads on flies. Simply use white Nano Silk and for the last 4� / 100mm of thread use a permanent marker pen to color Nano Silk for the color of head. A quick zap with No Tack UV and our UV Torch we produce stunning colored heads for whatever fly we are tying. This enables us to produce any color head from available marker pens. If you are using Nano Silk on a micro dry for example and use Yellow Nano Silk 18/0 as both your thread and to produce micro ribbing use standard Yellow 18/0, it makes the job simple!

Son Tao’s interest in fishing began when he was around 9 years old. Son and his family were immigrants from Vietnam. Growing up, his family didn’t have a lot of money and toys were luxury items the family couldn’t afford. So he grew up running around the woods and riding his bike throughout the countryside in rural Pennsylvania. A neighbor gave Son an old Shakespeare spinning rod and his love for fishing was immediate. Son lived a mile from the Conestoga River in Lancaster County. He dug up worms, caught crayfish and used anything he could to catch the bass, carp and panfish in the Conestoga. Once he got his driver’s license at age 16, Son started trout fishing (still with a spinning rod) around Lancaster County.

Son continued to fish through high school and college. After college, he worked at RCA in their engineering department. His favorite place to fish was Maryland to chase after striped bass. Son bought his first fly rod at age 28; an Orvis kit. Before he could use the fly rod, the events of September 11, 2001 happened and Son enlisted in the United States Army.

Over the course of 16 years in the military, fishing was shelved due to the constant deployments, moving and raising three children. In 2015, while stationed in Hawaii, Son met a Korean War veteran at a Veterans of Foreign Wars bar. The veteran noticed that Son was a frequent patron and drank pretty heavily. He attempted to engage in conversation with little success. Once he brought up the subject of fishing, Son began to open up. Son was asked if he ever fly fished for saltwater in which the answer was that he never fly fished. He owned a rod but never got to use it.

From constant deployments fishing was shelved until a chance meeting at a Vetrans Bar

The very next day, the old veteran and Son went to Kaneohe Bay flats to try and catch bonefish. Son was taught the fundamentals of casting (in which he miserably failed) but succeeded in hooking up onto a bonefish. Little did he know that the 10+ bonefish was a trophy catch. Son just thoroughly enjoyed the moment and the fishing bug was back again.

After numerous deployments to the Middle East, suffering through combat related injuries and the loss of Soldiers, Son had many sleepless nights. After that day of fishing, he had his first restful night of sleep in years. He didn’t know what post-traumatic stress disorder was nor did he know that fly fishing would become a major part of his life. Son and his family moved a few weeks after catching that bonefish to Indiana where he was assigned to a small Army unit. Fishing again was put on the back burner as he was busy traveling around the United States with his new assignment. During a long commute home one day, he heard about the Indianapolis Sports & Outdoors show. On a whim, he drove to the show (while still in military uniform) and was flagged down by a few volunteers at the After a day of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing fishing Son has his (PHWFF) booth.

The volunteers informed Son of PHWFF’s mission. PHWFF is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings. Son signed up for their email newsletter and attended their first outing the following month. A year later, Son won the 2017 Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing International Fly Tying Competition.

His introduction to tying began with a visit to a local fly shop, Flymasters of Indianapolis. There, he met Derrick Filkins, the store manager. The fly shop often got boxes of fly tying materials from widows and family members. Derrick gave Son an old Renzetti Traveler vise, some materials and a book “The Founding Flies: 43 American Masters, Their Patterns, and Influences” written by Mike Valla. Being a history buff, Son immediately fell in love with the stories of Theodore Gordon, Ray Bergman, Art Flick, Lenn Halladay among many of the historical tiers.

A history buff, Son Son immediately fell in love with the stories of Theodore Gordon, Ray Bergman, Art Flick, Lenn Halladay & others

Son saw a fly in the book, the Ginger Quill, and had to learn how to tie it. He ended up tying almost 100 ginger quills, buying up every pack of mallard primary feathers at Flymasters of Indianapolis until he got the fly looking like the one in the book. While his start to fly tying wasn’t typical, being self-taught greatly contributed to his future success in the industry. The military gave him determination, the engineering background gave him insight in the construction of the flies and the love for art gave him a deep appreciation for the color, composition and proportions of a finished fly. Best of all, fly tying gave him an escape from the anxiety and restless nights from his PTSD. Since Son’s start in fly fishing 4.5 years ago, he has taken the industry by storm. At the time of this article, he has almost 43,000 followers on Instagram and another 12,000+ on Facebook. He represents numerous companies to include Semperfli Fly Tying Materials, Whiting Farms, Abel Reels, Solarez and J Stockard Fly Fishing to name a few. Son is active with helping teach others about fly fishing, tying and is actively involved with numerous veterans organizations.

Perfect for Micro Fly Tying

Use with any type of bobbin

Semi translucent helps adopt shade of dubbing or body around the thread

Lays flat

Ideal for smaller flies

Spyder, a traditional tying thread, was specially developed to be semi translucent so that the threads help adopt the shade of the fly pattern. Spyder has 2 fine strands of thread twisted together. It has a breaking strain of approximately 400gm - for comparison tests show Uni Caenis to have a breaking strain of 85g & Danville Spiderweb breaking strain is approximately 142gm *. The strength of Spyder in comparison will give the fly tyer confidence when tying small flies that their thread will hold better. With 2 strands Spyder will also lay reasonably flat when tying flies. Spyder is aimed for fly tyers wanting to tie small flies as an alternative to threads like Uni Caenis or Wisp which are weaker threads. In developing Spyder the team wanted a micro thread which had some strength, laid flat and could be used with any type of bobbin * For full details see independent report on fly threads at https://globalflyfisher.com/tie-better/fly-tying-thread-table.

When Juan Carlos joined the Semperfli Pro Team we were really pleased. His talent for realistic fly tying was something we were keen to add to the team. We have lots of plans working with Juan Carlos to develop new products over the coming years. We can see frequent visits between Madrid and Yorkshire coming! For the past 12 years Juan Carlos has dedicated himself to fly fishing and his skills have become legendary winning realistic fly tying competitions and we are looking forward to some fishing with him. Watch Juan Carlos on TV and radio and across social media.

looking for information about the real insects, catching and release some, visiting an insectarium plus talking with entomologists

Juan Carlos has been involved in the world of fishing from a very young age, his passion was passed on to him by his brother-in-law. Having tried many fishing disciplines, he has now dedicated the last 12 years exclusively to fly fishing. Initially Juan Carlos starting fishing for trout and predators, he now only spend his time in the search of and fishing for large barbel, and of course always enjoying the joy of the catch and release. The passion for fly fishing especially "fishing with your eyes“ led him to investigate the habits and habitats of fish and inspired him to give more importance to realistic flies and started developing even more interest in entomology. For Juan Carlos the tying of his own flies is not an obligation, it is a passion and it is an integral part of his fishing as he says "I could not imagine fishing with a fly which I have not made with my own hands�. One of the things that motivates him most is making a new fly pattern and going to the river to see how it performs.

When he started tying initially like all of us his first flies were simple nymphs for trout fishing. Quickly he became fascinated with semi-realistic imitations, usually made of foam, which was the material with which he began to experiment and tie his first terrestrial imitations particularly ants and beetles. Juan Carlos has always been a very perfectionist and careful person with his work which you can see in his flies. Now Juan Carlos is a father and he recognizes how they investigate everything in great detail. This trait has made him look for beautiful aesthetic look in his flies, good proportions and good finishes. However at the time he didn't pay enough attention to the insects he was trying to imitate and this led to his target fish resisting his flies occasionally. This stage of fly tying is typical of an impressionist tier and not as a realist or semi-realist.

The first realistic fly he tied was a beetle that he still has it. The second was a caterpillar, a simple pattern that he often ties at show. Although it is an imitation used by only a few fishermen, it works very well. Watching some videos of Oliver Edwards he tied some semi-realistic Nymphs and Mayflies. At the time information was limited and was only found in specialist magazines. In Spain only Danica magazine published some "step by step" of realistic or semi-realistic flies.

Now things have changed with the Internet. There is an enormous amount of information about fly fishing and tying. Information on tie realistic fly tying is more limited. This discipline makes you think a lot about how to do things, what materials to use and for Juan Carlos this is where the challenge and investigative fun really begins. Physomeloe corallifer Photo De Luis Fernández García - Trabajo propio, CC BY-SA 4.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=49931537 Another of Juan Carlos’s great hobbies is bike riding. His professional work life has always been related to the world of mechanics and bicycle wheels. One day, riding in his bike he saw several Physomeloe corallifer crossing a trail and he noticed that they have a dots in coral-red color. This made him investigate the insect much more and he realized he had never seen an imitation of this insect. As a consequence he began to think how to make a realistic imitation which he could take to Alto Reno show that he had been invited to in Italy. Early in 2018 having been a guest fly tier at the EWF in Germany and he entered his first fly into a realistic tying contest at the 11th Open German Fly Tying Championship. The fly he entered was a beetle in flight position with elytrons (these are the tough fore wings of beetles) and flight wings. This stunning fly imitated the starting position before taking off for the beetle. This fly won Juan Carlos first prize, however Juan Carlos was still not satisfied as the second place fly was very good and could have won so he saw the challenge for himself. He Juan’s Beetle Showing the Elytrons (tough forewings) that cover the flight wings decided to tie for the next year something really difficult, not thinking about victory but as a personal challenge. Thinking about insects he thought of something incredibly complex, the mantis which has 2,400 subspecies. He “I could not imagine understood that this was a very challenging and complicated fly. Just looking at the two front raptorial legs alone he saw many challenges with the wings that are always fishing with a fly

which I have not made with my own hands”

one of the most laborious parts in any realistic imitation. At the end of 2018 Juan Carlos started tying my first Mantis. The objective was to tie a Mantis trying to make it extremely realistic. It became an obsession, looking for information on the real Mantis, even catching and release Mantis to study them. Juan Carlos took to visiting an insectarium, he talked with entomologists and began reading books and of course looking information in the Internet. Key for Juan Carlos was to look at the actual insects and not look at other fly tiers work as he wanted to start right from the beginning without being distracted by other fly tiers patterns. First Juan Carlos had to understand the principal characteristics of the Mantis. He needed to fully understand the disposition of spines, numbers of spines, exact position of ocellus (compound eyes) , texture of the wings and of course the colors. Not a Version Fall 2020-2021 Copyright © Semperfli

simple challenge. The was a significant challenge for Juan Carlos. To ensure that he could meet the challenge he did an entomological study that even led to him having his own mantises at home so that he could fully observe it at every stage of its life cycle. Juan Carlos studied the mantis from birth, growth, and watched it molt to reach the adult state. Even now Juan Carlos keeps some Mantises and even several fertilized ootheques (egg cases) that he is waiting to see hatch. Juan Carlos now has a real passion for entomology in addition to his fishing and tying. Juan Carlos shares this passion with his 9 year old son, who has enjoyed these exciting insects with him. There are many people who cannot understand that he have insects at home. He jokes those people that do not understand also they cannot understand fly fishing, let alone catch and release! With a good understanding of the entomology and to help in the design process Juan Carlos started to draw a step by step design of the assembly process of the fly before starting to tie. He wanted to know each phase of the tying so that it would work.

Juan’s Mantis Amazing detail check the natural below for colours and accuracy!

As it was to be and exhibition fly he removed the eye of the hook but the rest of the hook can still be clearly seen. Every part of Juan Carlos’s Mantis fly is tied with thread. He remembers to construct the Mantis took a complete bobbin of Nano Silk 30D and a few meters of Nano Silk 50D. For tying alone Juan Carlos dedicated between 80 and 100 hours tying this fly. On top of that there were countless hours of research. You can see that just looking at the natural and final exhibition fly here. This fly changed his thinking and gave him the confidence in being able to tie what he wanted. From this moment Juan Carlos lost the need to pay attention to the work of other fly tiers to solve problems. He discovered that there Mantis - Sphodromantis viridis is true satisfaction in working out for himself the solutions Photo by Adamantios https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=2591730 to the difficulties in tying. By analysing a problem he could find several alternative ways to tie a part of the imitation and chose one, however he was pleased that he worked out different ways to achieve the results he was after. Until 2018 he designed and tied realistic flies to fish with. For him it was essential that the flies should be resistant and durable. When people saw his boxes of flies, they did not understand that I fished with those realistic flies. Like Classic Salmon fly tiers Juan Carlos has the reward of designing, tying and fishing with his own flies, even though hours can go into some of them and they look realistic. People looking at his fly box have said that it was sad to use the flies and one person even said to Juan Carlos that realistic flies do not fish properly, nothing is further My philosophy is: from reality! One of the things that Juan likes most and still will do it to tie 3 or 4 samples of a new fly pattern. He Mantis - Sphodromantis viridis will usually keep the best fly as a sample to refer

“Do ordinary things extraordinarily well.”

back to and puts the others in his flybox to try. For Juan Carlos, testing the flies is extremely motivating and he will try all the patterns that he ties with the exception of the realistic flies specifically designed for exhibitions. Indeed on many exhibition flies he will remove the eye of the hook. For any fly in which he invests time in or he will use to fish the quality of the materials is key. Indeed for Juan Carlos an essential is starting with the thread that is the one that will hold everything and does not snap on him. Prior to using Nano Silk he tied flies with threads that were very thick. Juan Carlos required strength in fly assembly and fishing. The thin threads that he found in the market were simply not strong enough. When Juan Carlos photographed his flies he could see very large final knots and other details that he did not like. When Juan Carlos discovered the Juan With His True Fishing Passion - A Powerful Barbel Semperfli Nano Silk threads he could not believe that such thin threads were so resistant! To get thin bodies or tie parts of a realistic imitation that are the small details that make the difference, there is nothing better than using these threads for a realistic fly tier.

For Juan fly durability is critical. A fly needs to last for a dozen Barbel!

Of course the reason Juan Carlos ties flies is also for his fishing. With his flies he needs flies that last and do not fall apart quickly. Today Juan Carlos’s passion is fishing for Barbel. It is a stunning fish to catch, extremely powerful with stunning runs and it holds the bottom of the river with fast currents it is often found in. For Barbel Juan Carlos uses reinforced hooks that weigh more and are much stronger than a standard trout hook. However the catch 22 for Juan Carlos is that for many of his realistic imitations he need a good buoyancy. This drives him to study materials closely looking for quality in the other materials that he uses, like the foam.

Juan Carlos says he does not understand fishermen who invest a lot of money in their rod and then little in a good hook or materials to make their flies. This search for durability in his flies has made him stop using some natural materials. As he says they may be effective natural materials but if they have limited durability, getting destroyed after a couple of large aggressive Barbel battles. For that reason he want flies with which he can take a dozen fish. For his dry flies, the goal is to get that they float perfectly and resist many fish takes. He also like to fishing with light nymphs. For that reason he Check Juan’s has moved to many of the Semperfli materials using Synthetic Perfect Quills, Straggle Legs, Iridescent Threads, Micro Metal which fishing and give him the incredible realistic durability he fly tying on his requires. As time moved social media. See on he is using some amazing fly less natural patterns that look materials from dead like they are real! animals and more synthetic materials that Facebook normally are https://www.facebook.com/jccambroneroglez easier to work Instagram: with and give https://www.instagram.com/jccambronero/ a longer fly Version Fall 2020-2021 Copyright © Semperfli

QUESTION

Transparent Showing Underbody Materials

Why spend money on lots of different colored quills. Our quills let the underbody show through……...

One Quill to rule them all!

What is the Perfect Quill difference?

Transparent with black ribbing means you do not need to buy lots of colors of stripped quills. Use a thread, wire or tinsel for the body then wrap Perfect Quills over the top and the body color will show through.

For natural quills you have to hand strip and color, yuk its time consuming.

Pre colored synthetic quills mean that you need to buy separate colors making it much more expensive than Perfect Quills …. Why waste money!

Amazing synthetic quills, clear and tapered these form the most amazing bodies on flies, from nymphs, shrimps, wets and dry flies. Totally synthetic Perfect Quills are made from a thin tapered vinyl from a point to 3mm width with a wonderful black edging strip to form the rib. Use any colored materials from threads to tinsels or even permanent marker pens then the color will shine through. To make an indestructible fly use a UV resin or varnish over the top to stop fish teeth damaging your fly bodies. 20 Quills per pack

0.4mm and 1mm widths

Transparent allowing body to show through

100mm length quills (you can get 2 flies per quill depending on fly size)

Vinyl makes wrapping easy. No brittleness to quills

Perfect for Salmon & Trout 400 Denier

Use for Trout & Salmon Bodies

Use double for large flies Floss has often been used as the body for flies, from trout to traditional salmon patterns. Typically these have been heavy, thick flosses. Semperfli team decided to change the rules, creating a thin floss, just 400 Denier that could be used for smaller trout flies and simply doubled over for use on Salmon patterns including classic salmon flies. By creating a thinner fly tying floss the capabilities and uses of this stunning material are enhanced so it can be used as the body for flies of many sizes.

With our Head Office in Yorkshire, UK and many of our Pro Team being Into traditional fly patterns such as Spiders and Clyde Style patterns pure silk threads are essential.

Pure Silk

Our Pure Silk is twisted, for a flat floss option simply untwist spinning on your bobbin holder. With ours being a twisted thread means it can be used in different ways and has added strength compared to traditional silks. With some of our tyers having over 50 years experience tying Clyde Style and Northern Spiders we were lucky to match well the traditional colors. 

With origins in Yorkshire, UK and having fanatical Clyde Style and Northern Spider tyers on the Pro Team silks were an essential part of the Semperfli range. When the team were lucky enough to get an original copy of the Edmonds and Lee book we worked with our Pro Team to match new silk threads against the original flies & flosses.

To compliment the silks and for creation of the perfect Greenwells the team developed Cobblers Wax.

Ideal For flies #8 to #18

A hybrid cross between a thread and fine round tinsel, Iridescent threads are a fine tinsel wrapped around fine monofilament strands as a core. For fly tying it acts like a fine wire. Wrapped tight around a fine hook and the strands of tinsel can be opened slightly if you wish giving a slightly faceted, gleaming surface. We developed these threads initially for vibrant buzzers and chironomids, caenis and corixa water boatmen. What we finished up with is a thread that is ideal for trout, salmon, saltwater and predator flies for bodies, thoraxes and vibrant hot spots

Stunning Metallic Highlights

Micro Glint tinsel is a fine multi-strand iridescent and metallic thread with a unique sparkling finish. It can be used for tying complete buzzers or ribbing small nymphs and dry flies or as shucks. Micro Glint can be used as a thread also! The Pearl Micro Glint is spectacular for use in many ways. It can be used to imitate shucks easily by taking a few strands and twisting them together and using these as a shuck. Depending on the size of the fly you may want only one thread twisted for a small fly size 18 or below or 4 twisted pairs for a size 10 fly shuck. 

Vibrant UV

Specially formulated for fluorescence 120 Denier 6/0

Since Joseph Keen's book - Fluorescent Flies (1964) and Thomas Clegg's book - The Truth About Fluorescents (1967) fly tyers have been working with fluorescent materials. Today there are different fluorescent flosses available. However the manufacturing quality of such materials can vary with some flosses coming in different sizes from the same manufacturer! This makes it difficult for fly tyers. We decided to make a fluorescent thread with advantages that it could be used as a tying thread or as a floss, could be untwisted with the bobbin and used as a floss. Fluoro Brite was born to be different. What is well known is that fluorescent materials do attract trout, salmon and other species. We cannot see material effects except under a UV torch where we see the glow. But with their visual rods and cones capable of seeing into the UV spectrum many fish species see this like a light in the dark. Fluorescent materials work well one hour before daylight and one hour after nightfall. This is because even though we cannot see them, UV rays from the sun

Recommended hook size guide #10 to 2/0 and above. For smaller flies split Fluoro Brite to use down to size 20! Use as hot spot, fluorescent ribbing, body or hot spot tail For use as a floss simply untwist using your bobbin holder to create a flat floss

HINT

Use several strands of Fluoro Brite as a tail, cut and tease the Fibers with a dubbing brush.

Because Fluoro Brite is twisted you will be left with a stunning, crinkled, fluorescent tail which produces ‘sparkles’ like fireflies at the end of the tail under a UV light and of course in water from sunlight hitting your flies.

Synthetic Raffia

Another alternative for shellbacks Swiss Straw is a synthetic raffia. Our synthetic raffia is soft and makes great colored shellbacks. To use Swiss Straw tie in over the body of your nymph then use Semperfli 0.2mm Fly Tying Wires or monofilament to form ribbing for your fly. Swiss Straw makes great wing cases and can be wrapped around the hook to create bodies without adding any weight to the pattern. Another alternative use is for very realistic looking wing buds on buzzer patterns – you can color it with a permanent marker then coat with No Tack UV or varnish for a stunning effect

Finest Core Micro Chenille Available 1.5mm 1/16� width

Ideal for bodies winging, tails and shucks

Flat braids can be used for flies from small to large salmon, streamer and saltwater patterns. These braids are extremely strong and tie in easily. Pull tight and the strand becomes narrow and thicker, twist and it cords. With less pressure and wiggle the flat strands spread or fray for a spray of flashy or fluorescent Fibers. Fantastic on bonefish, salmon and saltwater patterns.

Fantastic on bonefish, salmon and saltwater patterns.

Braids can be used flat under varnish or UV resins such as our No Tack UV to produce stunning fish-like bodies. Alternatively use braids teased apart so that the crinkled fibers look like tails or shucks on larger dries to even larger clousers or streamers

HINTS Don’t forget you could use a permanent marker pen to add a barred effect or different colored back on the braids. Braids can be used as a body, simply tease the ends with a bodkin to break apart the braid to produce a tying in point. This stops you from getting a raised section of body at the tie in point.

There are resins on the market however some simply do not set right through the resin, some are tacky and their manufacturers advise varnish on top. Some resins do not cure all the way through, as a result water ingress into the fly through the uncured resin results in the fly materials falling apart. Our No Tack UV Resin is: 

Thin to get into all the fibres and strands of your fly

NO TACK RESIN

What is the difference? 0 No Tack Thin has the viscosity of motor oil, making it easy to apply. It does not set immediately and can be molded around the head or body of the fly. We use an old bodkin just for this purpose.

Only use an old bodkin for molding No Tack. Keep a spare as the ideal molding tool to push No Tack UV where required on your fly. Keep your best bodkin for separating Fibers or for splitting Nano Silk to form dubbing loops! Alternatively use a small artists painting brush and paint No Tack onto your fly

Extreme String works amazingly well if brushed with a toothbrush to separate the fibers even further. Either brush before or once tied to add even more bulk without weight to this stunning material. With a range of colors this is deadly for Pike, Muskie, Bull Trout, Steelhead or any saltwater predators. With 40mm hackles you can make bulky but light weight flies with Extreme String. 

Floating Yarn

Ideal for bodies, parachute posts, indicators and as dubbing Often nicknamed by fly tyers as yarn dubbed as the "floating yarn”. Since its invention poly yarn has been used in many industries from carpets to seatbelts. However for fly tyers its unique abilities make this a stunning fly tying material. With a specific gravity/density of 0.91 g/cm³ poly yarn is lighter than water and so floats making it ideal for dry flies particularly where it is used for parachute posts and as dubbing. When used on a dry fly it absorbs floatant and keeps your fly floating. Many companies claim to use poly yarn however fly tyers can easily test if it is genuine poly yarn, simply cut a 1” 25mm strip, scrunch it in your fingers and drop it into a glass of water. If it is genuine poly yarn it will dip below the surface then return to the surface film. It is this lighter than water feature that makes it an ideal dry fly material

Specific gravity/ density of 0.91 g/cm³ so lighter than water

Simple, it is a proven fly world-wide. Most fly fishermen and tyers are fishing on waters where fish are under pressure, using size 14 to 20 Klinkhåmer’s. Hans is lucky enough to fish some of the most pristine fisheries in the world and the Klinkhåmer proves its self time after time. From Canada, South Africa to Ulaanbaator Mongolia, from Salmon, Taimen, Amur Trout to Pacu and Catfish all come to Klinkhåmer. Many times he has seen large fish rising to the surface on his travels. Hans will go out early evening and morning when light is dropping or rising and fish are less cautious. Remember a big fish has to get lots of energy or as we call them flies which provide the protein to maintain their size. Give them a large fly in the right conditions and they will take and battle is on.

Tips & Tricks

As it is built on a slightly elastic core firstly use scissors to remove the end fibers to create a narrow tying in point

Brush Guard Hair Chenille with a toothbrush or similar. It is tightly crimped in manufacture which benefits and smooths out greatly when brushed making it bulkier attractive and giving great movement

Nano Silk is extremely strong and if not used it can cut through materials. Any twisted thread is like a cheesewire! Foam is one of the materials that Nano Silk can cut if not used correctly, however there are some simple tricks. Like all materials technique is king!

For foam use simply untwist Nano Silk so the thread fibers are flat. Use the flat Nano Silk and put 4 loose turns over the foam remembering to untwist with every turn (one rotation of threads puts one twist into that thread). Once you have a bed of 4 turns of Nano Silk over the foam then tighten down, The flat Nano Silk will act as a bed and protect the foam!

Chironomids / Buzzers When we see the backs of trout dashing along the surface like torpedos on stillwaters it is highly likely they are sipping up Chironomids or buzzers hanging in the surface film trying to break through the surface. This fly has been a long term favorite of ours. When we tried this we loved it. Orange, Pink and Yellow foam tubes worked brilliantly as well as natural colors. How often have you seen anglers using an orange bobber and it was hit by trout ignoring the flies below! This is a deadly combination and will not sink.

When we created our dubbing we decided we wanted to create an ultra fine dubbing that could be used to create normal dubbing or be used as twisted detached bodies. The result was an 80 micron dubbing which is soft, breaks easily to create dubbing or in its 2” (50mm) strips could be used to create detached bodies equally easily. 

Superfine just 80 micron in size

Smooth and gentle dubbing

Easy to break and blend

Wide range of colors The dubbing can be used twisted in long strands for detached bodies

Use sparce amounts of dubbing. It is easier to build gradually. It is virtually impossible to remove!

The Green Drake (Ephemera danica) is one of the exciting flies for European fly fishermen. In the UK they hatch in what is known as Duffers Fortnight, a mythical period when the mayfly is prevelant on English Chalkstreams and every cast is supposed to catch a fish. In Ireland there are times when loughs are covered with mayfly. Through Europe this fly creates wild periods for us. Here Joachim Wallin shows us the natural and his deadly match for the Green Drake.

Independent strength tests have performed by Martin Joergensen which can be seen at http://globalflyfisher.com/tie-better/ fly-tying-thread-table. Nano Silk comes out strongest comparisons against comparable threads. The big question is why is Nano Silk so strong? It is actually simple, GSP threads are made from extruding polythene (Gel Spun Polyethylene GSP) in the same way we make spaghetti, the raw plastic is stretched over rollers until the required diameter and merged into the final thread. Depending on the manufacturer it may then be twisted. With spaghetti you get different quality according to the flour used. True ‘00’ flour is used for the best quality spaghetti. In the same way Semperfli specifications demand the highest quality polyethylene with specific qualities which make the best and strongest quality fly tying thread. As a result our technical team have produced aramids (GSP) where the molecules tend to form rod-like structures and these are only be oriented in one direction to form a strong fibre for fly tyers.

Gary Borger developed the stunning Borger Color System back in the 1980’s to enable professional fly tyers to compare colors of materials and flies. Remember this was long before the advent of the Internet and all the modern tools we have available. The 147 color chips are ideal for natural flies however they do not extend to the modern colors used or trigger colors use for example vibrant reds, cornflower blues and color not found in insects and fish in nature. As a result the Semperfli team developed an extended color chart and gave each color a number. After all tyer in different parts of the world sometimes interpret colors differently. With the Semperfli color charts below it is easy to define and match colors.

Like a DIY house painting reference chart. The Semperfli Color codes are an extensive color range so that when we refer to a color we know exactly the color we are referring to.

At Semperfli we recognize the amazing work that is done by many different charities and organizations around the world. They may be a tying club, a group supporting young people, a Veteran’s programme to help our military recover from their experiences, programmes to help people in recovery from sickness or pressures of life or a Trust that is looking to raise the awareness of environmental issues – either way if we can do something to help support these projects we will. Equally we appreciate the work that goes into organizing a fly tying exhibition or event. To that end we are more than happy to work closely with and support these organizations. We do our best to support any organization in as flexible way as possible and indeed are happy to discuss projects with a charity to make sure we provide the best input possible. To date, typical support has been; Providing raffle prizes or vouchers to spend on materials for fundraisers We are blessed to have very dedicated and experienced Ambassadors and Pro Team. They are very generous with their knowledge and time and offer workshops or tying demonstrations to specialist groups and young people around the world

Supporting Veterans Including Donegal Chapter of Trout Unlimited

We never throw any materials away – even if it might not be retail perfect. We would prefer it to be used as much as possible. So where we have an excess of materials or seconds we offer these to qualifying organizations free of charge For qualifying groups we send out materials for them to use as part of their initiatives Submitting prizes for fly tying competitions at clubs, exhibitions or events If you would like Semperfli to consider your charity or event for support please get in touch at sales@semperfli.net providing as much information as possible about your project and organization status.

Sustainable fly tying is a responsibility for us all as fly tyers. Many think this only affects classic Fly Tyers using Speckled Bustard, a Toucan or Indian Crow skin, however CITES affects almost every fly tyer, we simply may not realise! Did you know that peacock is now covered by Cites? Yes! This is not just about grey parrot or Jungle Cock it means that if we carry peacock herl across international borders we risk confiscation and fines or worse. This could be in our fly tying materials or in a fly. It is serious. Imagine… we or one of our colleagues are going fishing to an international location and (for example) the Prince Nymph flies tied with Peacock herl is discovered at customs… or fly tyers going to an International show and are caught with Peacock Herl in their fly tying kit! As fly tyers we must prove the sources of materials if caught travelling internationally. However, even if we have purchased Peacock Herl from a local breeder from bred stock and have a vet’s certificate proving its’ origins how can we prove that the single feather wrapped around our Pheasant Tail Nymph came from that bird? The answer is simple we cannot. Fly tying must move to more synthetic, bred or game related species. We all have responsibility for sustainable fly tying. The use of exotic materials does not improve your tying skills and the list of substitutes is big enough for everyone to find his or her happiness legally and at a much lower price than many illegal species used. Semperfli is committed to synthetics and game species to support sustainable fly tying. We look at species related to tying classic Salmon Flies, as the patterns of the 19th Century contain a lot of such material which at the time were not protected. It was a big surprise for us, when we read that the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species, CITES in short, was established as a result of the fly tying community, bringing the Grey Jungle Fowl to the brink of extinction. Before we read this, we were genuinely not aware that fly tying could have such a massive consequence on wild life. To us, this was and is shocking. CITES recently announced the addition of sixteen species to its list of controlled species, Appendix III. Species under Appendix III are subject to enhanced restrictions and require additional documentation upon importation. Included in the list of amendments are several species of the Phasianidae family; two kinds of Asian pheasants, but most notably, Pavo cristatus (Indian peafowl or blue peafowl) – i.e. peacocks.

We look back in history and fly tying patterns and see an amazing array of mammals historically used in fly tying, including various squirrels, the Diana Monkey, Chinchilla, Gray Fox, Brown Bear, Wolverine, Polar Bear, Coyote, Seal, Elk, White-Tailed Deer, and goat and feathers from birds as diverse as Indian crow, Blue Chatterer, Golden Pheasant, Lady Amherst pheasant, corncrake, toucan, Guinea Fowl, Ocellated Turkey, Merlin, Coot, Baikal teal, Wood Duck, and Scarlet Macaw. The list is endless.

The peacock population is dwindling fast due to habitat loss, contamination of food sources and poaching. The Indian Peafowl is endangered and the Green Peafowl is nearly, if not absolutely, extinct. Peacock feathers are widely used in home decor and decoration, mask making and millinery applications, costume and theater productions, wedding decoration and of course fly tying.

In our different journeys we have probably been to exhibitions and seen companies and individuals selling Jungle Cock, most of which is illegally harvested, Polar Bear, seal fur or other exotics, How often have you Peacock Feathers originating from Pakistan were already seen ‘specialists’ that have listed in Appendix III and therefore require a CITES export had a stock of Jungle Cock permit to be legally imported into the US. The change capes arrive? Reality is these means that peacock feathers coming from other regions will are almost all illegal, also now require a CITES certificate of origin issued by the harvested for $1 in India, CITES enforcing authority of the exporting country send to the specialist retailer who is selling on Facebook This is not an issue for me surely? I brought my Peacock and Ebay for $80 to $250. from a shop while in Europe and am on a fishing trip to Alaska. So how do you prove that that Peacock is from a legal source and how do we prove to customs that peacock on the hook is the peacock or in a hank in my tying kit I purchased from that source?

We have a series of questions we must ask ourselves, is this sustainable, is it legal and are we doing what is right for the future of our hobby and industry. What are we going to leave our children
