The Grinch stole Christmas, and this the fly steals the attention of the fish… Olive flies works well in many rivers, and they are great for the swedish river Mörrum too. Local salmon- and seatrout angler Jani Barna is the man behind an impressive amount of big fish from the river and an experimenting flytyer – and the Grinch is one of his effective creations.
The Grinch is tied with opossum, that offers great movement, even in the slower parts of the river. We have had Stefan Enevoldsen from Fiskeshopen in Mörrum, behind the vise to demonstrate the tying of this effective fly.
