Fox Double Hook Version 2
Fox (DH) V2 Series The Fox double hook series is a selection of salmon- and sea trout flies that I/we have used successfully over many years.
They are for the middle of the salmon season, especially under lower or clear water conditions; in situations where you need something other than a tube fly.
The Fox V2 flies are “lighter” dressed flies. They are all tied on a short and strong size #8 double hook with a rather large gap, which makes it possible to play a salmon or a sea trout relatively fast.
The patterns and the color choice on the Fox flies are created to match all the different “lighting” conditions and watercolors you can experience as a salmon/sea trout fly angler throughout the season. Sometimes you want the fly to “stick out” but most of the time you want it to be stealthy and not seen before it is meant to be.
For the Fox double hook series, I prefer not to use a steering knot, as it tends to pull the fly sideways in the water. I recommend a loop knot that will make the fly move enticingly through the current. Perfection loop has always been my favorite knot for smaller wet flies.
P.S.: All Fox DH flies are tied by a professional Danish fly tier and therefore maintains a standard of high quality, in both material and workmanship.
