Hellefossen Spesial was originally tied by Guideline employee Børge Iversen to a shop by the river Drammenselva in Norway. They wanted a tubefly that looked like their best catching lure that has the colours copper and red. Later this pattern has proven to be very effective in rivers in Trøndelag, Finnmark and Kola. A top fly for all conditions throughout the season in colored water. This fly unlike the rest in the series has tungsten cone.
TD means Temple dog style; these flies are tied on high quality plastic tubes with brass coneheads to balance up and make the fly get down faster to where the salmon is. Temple dog flies, first tied by Håkan Norling from Sweden has nice tapered wings, made of several sections of high-quality fox hair. To make the wings come alive there are also flash tied into the wings and brush out. Our TD series is variants of well-known classics and features our own custom synthetic Jungle Cock that are flexible and made of an almost indestructible material. Like our other flies they are very well tied and probably the most durable flies on the market, made to last many days of fishing
