Fly tying video: Heinz Kneubühler ties the "Emmebäse"


Famous hackle fly of the Emmental (Kneubühler, Burgdorf)

The Emmebäse is handmade like 100 years ago- without vise, just holding hackle, thread and hook in the hands.

Use Swisshook or VMC 9388BZ in size 12.

Fly tying video: Albert Bise ties "La Mienne", olive- beige
The first ever made split wing no-hackle CDC fly

La Mienne (Original Bise), olive- beige

Swiss no-hackle split wing CDC- probably the first ever made (1964)

Albert Bise ties in Lausanne, Switzerland this fly in the traditional way, as he did 50 years ago.

He's using still the same Swiss Jura CDC, the same silk waxed with beeswax. This no hackle CDC, is still catching a lot of good fish.

If you ask for the name of the fly, Albert says "c'est "La Mienne" (my fly)".
