Wolfgang Von Malottke Wolfgang von Malottke
Hi, my name is Wolfgang von Malottke. I am born in Orebro Sweden 1962. I love fly-fishing and dressing Classic Atlantic Salmon Flies.

It all started in 1985 when I was fishing with spinning rod on the River Dalälven in Sweden. A gentlemen showed me his fly box full of hair winged salmon flies and I was hooked. I was impressed with their beauty and all the different colored flies he had tied and was fishing with. A year later I was right in the middle of it, fishing for salmon with a fly, and tying my own classics.

At first I used a vice, with very poor results, so I decided to try tying without one. Today, tying without a vice works best for me. I don't know why, but I feel freer when I can turn the fly around with no vice in my way. There is also no thread holder or bobbin to work around or to get in my way.

I have always strived for perfection and I also try to give all the flies I tie an antique look. I'm not much for the "new" style with false hackles, non-tapered bodies and micro heads. I prefer the dressings of Kelson, Hardy and Hale rather than the dressings of Pryce-Tannatt, which I feel are not true to the originals dressings.

Thanks,

Wolfgang von Malottke
