The Vaskebjørn fly ( Raccoon )

The Vaskebjørn fly is a very popular Norwegian sea trout fly and it was born in the middle of the 90’s as a hybrid between some other famous sea trout flies, This pattern is a good imitation of a beach shrimp or a small baitfish and will fish very good year along.

The man behind the Vaskebjørn fly is Christian Schanche and it has been tied in many different color combinations since. Yellow and green fluorescent color combination is very popular in Denmark and Sweden.
