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.

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

 

 

 

Cape Cod week 24, video

 

Laura and Danilo has made a short video which I can recommend. Check it out

Cape Cod week 24, 2014

This year I went with Thomas, Jacob, Frank and Kim to fish for stripers at Cape Cod. As this was my fourth consecutive year I knew more or less what I was in for but three of the guys were rookies and it is always a pleasure to show new fish and places to other fishermen.

The first day we fished nothing happened the first hour or two but then I hooked a good fish and everyone were excited

P6070129

The first striper turned out to be a keeper (28 inches) but just barely and it was released

 

DSC_0246Later the same day we hit some very nice sight fishing where the fish were smaller but it was very good fun and everyone caught fish. Here Kim presents one of the fish.

When a school of stripers passed we several times had a double or a treble hook up.

 

P6070144

The fish were all (minus one) released

 

P6080169

There were a lot of horse shoes crabs and they were in the mood for love

Due to the tide and the wind we fished quite a lot at night time. The first night we went out Jacob got this 32 inch keeper.

 

P6100223

This was the only fish during the trip that was killed. We made a very nice dinner out of it. We tried it fried on the pan and oven baked and we must say that it is an excellent fish to eat.

 

DSC_0274We had a schedule with fishing both at night and during the day time and we got many fish, most of  shoolies but despite this is not a keeper it is a very nice fish to catch.

 

2014-06-14 13.13.01We fish primarely with sand eel patterns and that was for a reason as there was an abundance of sand eels.

 

P6120264

One day we rented kayaks and went out with Bruce and Scott as guides. We had two extra memorable spots on this trip. The first was a sand flat with 1½ feet deep water and we could cast to hunting and tailing fish. Especially Frank had succes here and it was nice sized fish.

Later Bruce, Thomas and I went to another spot where really big fish cruised around us. They were not eager to take the fly but Bruce hooked up a very strong fish.

 

DSC_0312It was not only strong but it was also a big fish

 

DSC_0317and he was very content when he could present this 39 inch striper

 

DSC_0341

15 minutes later I hooked a similar sized fish which was a new personal best for me but soon after we had to leave as the tide was rising.

 

P6140395Franks camera had a dramatic effect switch and that could presents som very interesting photos.

 

P6140379Here Jacob presents a keeper in dramatic mode

 

2014-06-13 12.11.11One morning we met a couple fishing with the Linekurv and it turned out to be an italian couple. They were as most fly fishers very nice to talk with and I had a blast fishing in the States meeting italians with my basket.

 

P6140390

We were cut off by bluefish several times but Jacob and Frank each managed to land a bluefish.

 

P6140353

We caught a lot of fish mainly schoolies actually Thomas the last day got 11 fish in 11 casts so there were many fish. We got 5 keepers but many just below the 28 inch mark and as I had two keepers and a new PB despite my left hand casting I was very happy. As always it is nice to meet our American fishing friends whom ¨we can not thank enough and everyone would love to com back next year for another round of striperfishing.

 

 

 

 

Standby, 30/5 – 2014

Not a flyfishing trip but still a fishing trip. I went to Strandby with Caspar where we hoped to get some flounders. We started out digging for worms at the sandbars around Frederikshavn and loaded with app. 100 worms we headed for Strandby.

2014-05-30 20.50.04

Here Caspar presents the catch of the day – 18 flounders to bring home to the dinner table and we released around 7-8 as they were too small. A very relaxing day  with a lot of sun – actually too much as I forgot the sun screen

Fløjstrup 25/5 – 2014

a very early morning trip wadefishing with Carsten at Fløjstrup.

2014-05-25 05.09.39

The sunrise was beautiful and the sea was totally calm, not the best condition to catch fish but if the are at the surface you will see them.

 

2014-05-25 05.42.42

I got a cod but not a memorable size

 

2014-05-25 06.02.20

and a pollack that was not much bigger.

Nice weather and nice Company but lack of fish of decent size, we did not even see any good sized fish.
