Udbyhøj 26/4 – 2015

An early morning trip with Peter, 2 x Henrik, Lars and Brian all in pontoon boats. In the outgoing current and light Wind we tried several spots but without a lot of luck. We did catch fish but only smaller ones.


2015-04-26 11.47.50

It was not until the Water started to rise that Henrik got some good action. First he got a nice app. 52 cm trout and then this one took the fly.


2015-04-26 11.48.02

and after a secure landing..



2015-04-26 11.48.45

Henrik can present two very nice fish the second a bit larger than the first one.

I got 10 trouts and two garfish today but only smaller fish. Lars only got one trout but that was a good so he was content.



Udbyhøj 24/4 – 2015

Fishing alone in pontoon boat at Udbyhøj. Actually not quite alone as there is a big competition in the area so I could see 8 other fishermen when I started out. It rained when I started but that soon stopped and then it was dry with some sun and not much wind and an outgoing current.

I quickly got the first trout that was a bit below legal size and the I had fish that hit the fly but were not hooked.

2015-04-24 17.10.42

I soon discovered why. It was the first garfish of the year and a decent one. Like everything else this day it was released.

2015-04-24 17.56.13

I also got this trout that was big enough to keep though not by much but in was extremely well conditioned or almost fat. It literally jumped into to boat after a series of jumps.

I ended up with 8 trouts and a garfish. Half of the trouts were legal size but it was all smaller fish. An entertaining day at the fjord.

Ystad 15-18/4 – 2015

The annual trip to the Southern part of Sweden fishing for searun Brown trout from pontoon boats. This year 2 x Henrik, Lars and Jan came along.

150416_skillinge_lars_fiskThe first and second day were very windy and it was hard work to hold the boats with the fins. I managed to catch nothing as the only one. The Winter has been mild as we normally catch many kelts but this day and it proved to be the rule we got more blank fish but also smaller fish. Lars got this nice fish that was released as it had been spawning this Winter but it was in nice condition anyway.


2015-04-17 13.33.15

The third day was calm and sunny  and the water as very clear and without any small waves to blure things a bit, I did not like the conditions. I did manage to get a couple of fish. Here a nice fish that just lacked ½ inch to be legal.


2015-04-17 13.33.25It was caught on a pattern known as Brakvandsrejen (the brackish Water shrimp) made by Henrik. This pattern was probably the most efficient pattern on this trip.


2015-04-17 12.41.00

Jan got in the end of the day a fish that was big enough to keep.



2015-04-18 15.08.16 The last day was spent at Kåseberga along the hills of Hammar. Here we saw cranes on the move and the archetypical bird of Skåne – the kite.


2015-04-18 16.52.00This day everyone got fish and Lars and Jan each got one around the 2 kg mark –  both very nice fish.

Udbyhøj 29/3- 2015

Pontoon boat fishing with Jeppe and Allan at Udbyhøj. The weather was with a lot of variations so sometimes good and sometimes bad.

Today I had more luck than last week and I had the first fish within minutes after I started.

2015-03-29 10.41.52

It was a well conditioned 47 cm trout filled with small fish and a sand eel. The other fish I kept was filled with shrimps.

We did not see any fish but we had many contacts and before lunch I had 6 fish all the way in.

2015-03-29 14.33.39After lunch Allan got this nice 49 cm fish and we all got fish. I think we caught 18 fish  and as I got 10 I did not complaint. Half of the fish were legal size and I kept two for the pot so a nice day especially thinking of no fishing for the coming week as I will be on Holiday in Malta.




Bredningen 22/3 – 2015

A trip to Randers with the Bombay Guys after pike a week before the protection period starts. It was cold in the morning – actually the puddles of water were frozen when we started out in the morning. Not much happened when we started but after a couple of hours some of the guys found a spot where fish would take the flies.

2015-03-22 12.05.33

The pikes were not that big, here Jesper presents a typically pike of the morning.


2015-03-22 12.13.54

Michael later got a better fish – he was smoking hot today – at least according to himself :-)


2015-03-22 14.12.47

After lunch Carsten had his first fish and it turned out to be the fish of the day.


2015-03-22 14.14.41

A very well conditioned female that soon will spawn – this was a new personal best for Carsten so he was very content.

I managed to loose the only fish that grabbed my fly so not much to brag about today for me.




Mols 14/3 – 2015

An afternoon trip in the pontoon boat at Mols Hoved. The Wind came from North East and that resulted in a very unpredictable Wind behind the Cliffs. This was a day with many trouts following the fly and sometimes hitting the fly but only a few that actually was hooked.


2015-03-14 14.07.44

I got three trouts all app. the minimum size and all released. The were other fly-fisher and they also got fish some of them big enough to take home but no big fish


2015-03-14 15.29.44

The best fish this day was caught by Anders. He saw activity at the surface 6-7 meters from the Beach while having a break and grabbed this opportunity to get this app. 2 kg fish plus a smaller one hidden behind the big one.
