Markus Hoffman’s E -merge- R

yet another fantastic atmospheric thumbs-up man-cave tutorial of a great emerging mayfly nymph pattern. we’ll see at the end of the video how it sits super-inticingly-pretty just below the surface. enjoy !

‘whoever said a mayfly tail couldn’t be sexy was wrong.

Extended Mayfly Quill Body by Markus Hoffman i’ve seen a number of pre-made rubber hollow bodies aiming towards the same effect, but they where so ugly that using them felt more like an insult to fly tying but mostly to the fish. and then comes Markus’ ever-creative mind that gives birth to this ingenious, simple, […]

a Fly for HairDressers

yup, Markus Hoffman‘s crawled out of his Guinness-Flavored man-cave and gone into town to bring us this unusually located tasty-yummy swedish half-in/half-out, midge-chironomid-buzzer ‘Frisörmyggan‘ treat * since the fly itself is a little hard to see on the vid, Markus gracefully provided a few pics to wet your lacquered and well gelled appetite. enjoy ! […]

a grayling, a cat, a love bug and The Animal

Markus Hoffman says it’s a caddis imitation. not being so sure as to what he’s referring to i did a little research for myself- animal |ˈanəməl| noun a living organism that feeds on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli: animals such as unspecific flies adapt badly to […]

the Hoff

funny, just the other day i was wondering when Markus Hoffman would treat us to a new video and bingo ! one pops up out of his deep and dark and Guiness fumed, mantuary with a super-sweet realistical yet accessible to the average tier version of an emerging midge larvae. with a nice soundtrack reminiscent of […]

attitude, atmosphere and a see-through shrimp

by Markus Hoffman this time Markus goes teeny tiny with a Hemimysis or just plain Mysis of the Mysida order. at 5 to 25mm long these shrimpy creatures are quite small but they’r eagerly eaten up by char and trout so a nice realistic imitation is in order ! outside of the basic shape these creatures are […]

how mayflies and trout are made.

we’ve seen Markus Hoffman’s fantabulous fly tying videos here, here and here and now we get to see the next step of his obsession with art, insects, trout and fly fishing. it’s fascinating to watch, however if you don’t like high speed, thrashy loud music that involves monster-like screaming as a singing form, i’d seriously recommend turning down […]

Overtime Mayfly Emerger Overworked

by Markus Hoffman Wow, Wow, Wow and Wow ! this time we’re treated to the ‘Overworked Shaved Edition’ and what a treat it is  ! (yes, something special happens somewhere around the middle of the video, you’ll just have to wait and see) i could go on and on but this little film tells it’s […]
