Moesgaard 29/9 – 2014

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.

2014-09-29 17.54.27

We started out at 17.30 and Michael hooked a fish in his second or third cast

2014-09-29 17.55.11

It was a 45 cm sea trout in nice form

2014-09-29 18.10.38

15 minutes later he repeated the stunt and got another one a little bit smaller


2014-09-29 18.48.35

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.



Mariager Fjord, 13/9-2014


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.

2014-09-13 16.53.10

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.


2014-09-13 16.53.30As 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.

Udbyhøj, 6/9 – 2014

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.

2014-09-06 09.51.38

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.

Udbyhøj, 23/8-2014

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.

2014-08-23 11.26.41

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.



Hald sø, 24/7 – 2014

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.

2014-07-24 21.00.32

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.

Glomma week 27, 2014

A week of fishing from pontoon boats in Glomma and Folla with Lise, Henning, Gunnar, Anders, Harry and Art.

2014-07-02 13.52.18

When the weather is nice the norwegian landscape is hard to beat and we had several good days like this. Furthermore as we wanted to fish with dry fly is was a big advantage with no or just a little wind. The fish is easy to spot and they simply did not feed at the surface when the wind picked up even if there were plenty of insects.

2014-07-01 14.39.19My wife Lise is now handling the pontoon boat as an experienced user and she is doing a fine job with the fly rod as well. Here she is fighting one of her many graylings

2014-07-01 17.11.25

Later she could display this grayling that was released as almost all the fish we caught.


2014-07-01 13.09.27

As I  casted with both left and right hand I was a bit extravagant as I fished with two stripping baskets


2014-07-03 18.47.00

Anders got this nice fish that later was smoked. We did not get anything much larger than this.


2014-07-02 10.54.48

This flattering photo of Gunnar shows that we actually needed sun screen at times


2014-07-03 14.52.35

The last day we had terrific weather and fishing and Gunnar, Art and I got a LOT of fish and there were more good sized fish than the other days. In 3 hours I got 10 fish in the 16-18 inch range plus a lot of smaller fish. It was the perfect way to end this week in Norway. Art that came from the States to fish grayling got all that he came for and hopefully we one day can visit him and fish for steelheads in his backyard
