Just like all other fly tyers, I’ve experienced joy and satisfaction when fishing with my own flies, but I’ve also experienced frustration when dry flies wear out too quickly and refuse to float. Not to mention all the flies and nymphs I thought were absolutely perfect–only to be snubbed by fickle trout in my home stomping grounds of Säveån, my local trout stream in Sweden.

This was something that really irritated me and kept me awake at night. Was there any way to make dry flies and nymphs look and behave like real insects, while also taking a real beating when fishing…?

The end result: I simply found a way to create these types of flies. I call it the “J:sonSystem”.
