3 days of pike fishing from pontoon boats in the brackish water of the Baltic sea in Sweden with 10 fellow fly fishermen. The weather forecast was acceptable but as usual it was worse than predicted.
The first day some of us fished in Pukaviken and we did catch a decent number of fish but they were quite small. I got 11 pikes but the largest was app. 4 Pounds so not much to brag about. The flash flies in darker colours seemed to be the way to go on this trip
Erland fished from a Scadden boat were the seat was exchanged to a moulded seat with much better comfort as this is a weak point in this construction.
Erland this day got this very nice pike – 108 cm. It was by a good margin the best fish of the trip. The lip piercing we could have done without on the photo.
The second day it rained all day. I fished with Søren and only got 2 fish each and lost a couple as well but we ended early to make a nice dinner and have some beer and rum.
The last day it was not raining but still quite windy so at times we had to work hard. Here Thomas is fighting a pike in the waves.
and presenting it before release.
The last day started really slow for me but later I found some spots with pikes that seemed to pile up in spots. I got 17 pikes and the last one was a good-sized fish in the 9 – 10 Pound range so I was content. Everyone got fish in good numbers but we missed more bigger fish and could do without the rain.

A weekend trip with the Bombay Fly Guys always gives many laughs and sometimes a hangover. This trip did not disappoint and any way. We were 14 fly fishermen and it was my first visit to Barsø, which as a small Island app. one mile² in the Southern part of Denmark. We had rented a nice house with plenty of room and only 100 feet from the water.
all around the Island it looked like a hot spot for sea run Brown trout.
The first afternoon I got 6 fish but they were all like this – too small and the rest of the Guys did not do any better.
The second day I got 4 and one was actually big enough to kill (42 cm) but it was released. The bigger trouts were all coloured maybe due to the upcoming spawning but maybe it is like in Mariager Fjord were the sea run brown trout most of the year looks like a regular brown trout.
Henrik got this nice 52 cm fish on a new fly created by Ove Monrad. It only took 5 minutes from he tied on this fly until he landed the fish.
Despite most of the fish were small we lost some nice fish and here Allan presents a nice fish. All in all a good trip and I would like to come back and give it another try and then we hope the wind will be kinder to us next time.

Michael called and we took a short trip wadefishing at Moesgaard. I haven´t fished here for a while but as both Michael and I have caught some big fish here we will always come back now and then despite that it can be crowded.
We started out at 17.30 and Michael hooked a fish in his second or third cast
It was a 45 cm sea trout in nice form
15 minutes later he repeated the stunt and got another one a little bit smaller
Later we fished together and Michael saw a fish at the surface and just after I hooked a fish. It turned out to be a pollack that was released. Normally we only get really small pollacks in the 15-25 cm range but this was app. 40 cm. If we can catch them when they have added another 10 cm they will be good fun on light tackle and also good for eating.
In the end I also got a trout but too small but all in all a fine trip with some action. We met some other fishermen but they have had no luck so we should no complain.

Bombayfly arranged the first big and open fly only fishing contest in Denmark in Mariager Fjord.
Mariager Fjord is normally fantastic for such an event as it is a long and narrow fjord here you no matter how the Wind is always can find places to fly fish. Unfortunately this year the summer has been very hot and long and as the fjord is long and narrow the water is quite stationary and it is exposed to lack of oxygen and too many algeas.
The last week before the contest reports told that the fishing had been good even in the inner part of the fjord so our hopes were high for the day.
As part of the arranging commitee I only fished in the morning but without any luck. I did see fish jump but got nothing.
Here a view from the weight in. More than 100 fly Fishers participated and everyone I talked to liked the arrangement so I am sure that we will have another go next year.
As we had a minimum size for the contest on 45 cm some fish were rejected – they were nice fish but just a bit too small for this contest. Here is presented the 6 trouts that made it to the prices. Up to 1,6 kg. Fish number 2, 3 and 4 all weighted exactly the same 1,28 kg – we did not see that come.
Here all winners presenting their fish and their prices.

Started out early with Henrik and then Lars, Mong and Jan joined us later in the pontoon boats. The Water wis rising when we started but soon it fell and then the current was outgoing the rest of the trip. In the morning I saw quite a lot of small trouts jump end also som mackerels hunting in schools but I felt nothing. I also saw a young seal at very close range and some porpoises hunting probably mackerel. Henrik saw an otter this morning so a lot of activity except on the fly. Once I saw a nice 4-5 Pound trout jump out of the Water but with this strong current it was difficult to go for it.
I caught 3 small trouts and lost an Ok sized on at the frame of the landing net. Henrik had more or less the same amount of luck but many good moments this morning.

A friendly competition between Bombay fly, Djurs flyfishers and the Sport fishing girls took place at Udbyhøj. The competition was announced as a mullet competition but not many mullets have been seen this summer. I started out early in the morning with Henrik and we both fished from pontoon boats and we started to move into the fjord with the rising water but a against a heavy wind. Before I had my new outboard engine started (I forgot to open the fuel valve) Henrik got a small trout but after that we did not see or feel anything for hours. I went back to the harbour to have breakfast with som of the Bombay Guys and on the way I got a garfish.
After this break I went to the outer part of the fjord and here I found some trouts but as you can see too small. So after a few hours I returned for lunch – eating was apparently an essential part of the trip. Lasse, Jan and Simon had found some mullets in the harbour and Jan had a mullet that took his fly but spit it very soon.
At lunch time, the girls showed up but they knew when to arrive as Georgina caught this nice 20 inch trout that to my knowledge was the best fish of the day. So the girls won this round but we hope to get a revenge another time maybe at the Fly cup in Mariager next month.

An evening trip with Frank at Hald lake. It was my first trip to this lake which is quite big and surrounded with trees and no housing so it is really beautiful. It was extremely hot so the sand beach of the lake was very crowded and many people were bathing outside the beach. We fished not that far away from the Beach and we started on one of Franks hotspots for pike. But almost immediately perch were following our big flash streamers so we soon switched to lighter tackle and some smaller flatwing flies. We did catch a lot of perch, I will guess 20-30 perches each but most were small. We did get a few that were big enough to take home for some perch ceviche.
There was no wind and we could see the perch at the surface all the time. Next time I would like to try a popper, that could be good fun though the biggest perch were caught near the bottom.
