A good fly
Me and some buddies sat in a Norwegian lodge in the Valdres region. The fish took caddis pupae but we were too arrogant to succumb to the then new “Super-puppan”. We wanted something better and from our own minds. It was dubbed the “Suparpuppa” by some reason, not only because of the derivation from it´s wet ”ancestor”, the “Engan Special”,developed some thirty years earlier while fishing big river for grayling.
As it happened the “Suparpuppa” showed great qualities and quickly became my favorite “general fly”. I rarely use any other dries anymore
Nowadays, the fly is known for many and it is generally called "Anderbergaren" or, like myself prefer to call it, "The AnderBurger." It's still a juicy tidbit..
