Tying a Fly Called Laxá Blá

Fly Tying Tutorial Drom Ívar’s Fly Workshop

Here we will be tying the salmon fly Laxá Blá by Þórður Péturson. The fly is a great option for stream fishing for salmon. It’s already known here in Iceland for its great ability to catch salmon.

Like flies from the collection of Þórður, Laxá Blá is a little fancy looking just like most of his flies were designed. It has basically everything that a good salmon fly has to have and Laxá Blá is 150% recommended by myself.
