Emmebäse- classic Swiss trout fly


Emmebäse, authentic remakes of the original, in different colors

Aemmebäse/ Emmebäse

Famous hackle fly of the Emmental (Kneubühler, Burgdorf)

This fly seems to be simple- made just with one thread and one hackle- but it is since nearly 100 years the most effective fly in the famous Emmental. Developed was the fly by the local farmers, who fished it with the long rod and horsehair leaders, later on gut. Hans Kneubühler was the first to make this fly in high numbers about 1920. The fly was always handmade, with simple therads and hackles of local cock breeds, to save time and money. Thousands of trout were caught by this fly in Emme und Ilfis Rivers- why not trying it in your own river?

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