The story behind J:son

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…?

I finally found a way to create these types of flies. I call it the “J:sonSystem”.

With my system, you can tie realistic dry flies that leave a perfect impression on the water’s surface and are virtually unsinkable. Nymphs made with the J:son System have a natural silhouette and are taken for real insects. J:sonSystem flies are durable, so you can focus on the whole point of fly fishing, which is to fish.

I do hope that you like my system, and that it gives you the same experiences it gave me: inspiration and pleasure while tying, excitement on the water and loads of fantastic memories from some of the world’s most incredible fishing spots.

What is The J:sonSystem?

J:sonSystem are tools and materials which enables you to create any kind of realistic fly in sizes from 6 mm to 40 mm. These elements are available in various shapes, patterns and sizes to give you complete freedom to create flies that resemble the sort of insects found at your favorite fishing site.

J:son realistic wing burners are made of stainless steel and are available in 7 models of various sizes, for a total of 35 wing burners. Each wing burner has matching, printed sheets of wing material or wing buds. The sheets are delivered with a neutral (clear) sheet, which can be used as it is or be colored as you please.

We are also offering you colored wing material without patterns in olive, sulphur, tan and dun. All wing materials are guarenteed non-toxic and harmless to use when burning. 

J:son realistic nymph legs and nymph backs add natural silhouette to the fly. There are 18 models to choose between, all made of non-toxic silicon. 

Tying the fly on a J:son detached body pin makes it easier to create realistic, extended insects’ bodies compared with tying on a hook. The detached body pins are made of stainless steel and are available in four sizes. 

All tools and materials in the J:son System are developed, designed and made in Sweden.
