Salmon trout "puppeli"


Explanation:
This is a name of a streamer fly. Apparently 'kirre' is a slang expression for 'kirjolohi' which translates as salmon trout. 'Puppeli' seems to be a term referring to a style of tying filament to the thorax.

In the URL below you can see the Kirrepuppeli and perhaps recognise the style used to make the thorax.

Yes, I have that page. But as I can't read the Finnish instructions, I can't figure out what's meant--bullhead? muddler? bullethead? But thanks for the hint on kirjolohi.
