Djursland 8/5 – 2015

A trip with the Bombayfly guys to Djursland. I started out earlier than the rest and I wanted to fish from the pontoon boat as the Wind would come from North West and I had to cast with my left arm. I started early and soon I saw garfish at the surface.

2015-05-10 08.20.28

I also soon got the first garfish


2015-05-10 08.24.00

Later I had a pollack that jumped out of the water when I lifted the fly out of the Water. I did take the fly immediately after. It was small but good fun.

After the pollack I pulled a muscle in my left shoulder so I thought that I would stop but I tried with my bad right arm and if I casted without ambitions it was OK, actually better than expected so maybe I can come back to my normal casting arm Again.


2015-05-10 08.43.41

I also got this nice searun Brown trout (52-53 cm) that showed off with many nice jumps.

2015-05-10 08.44.01It really nailed that fly – a sort of tan shrimp pattern.


2015-05-10 11.33.22Later I got one two more trouts and I kept one more. It is nice when you can return with a catch like this. So a good day with seals, porpoises and three trouts, 3 garfish and a pollack – that must qualify as a Djursland grand slam ;-)


Udbyhøj 3/5 – 2015

an afternoon trip in the pontoon boat alone. This time I met Thomas so not completely alone. It was much more windy than anticipated so I had work hard with the fins. A long time went before I had any contact though I did see garfish at the surface but it was a quiet day at the office. 2015-05-03 13.40.08 One of the garfish of the day. I got four garfish and three trouts. I released all the fish as the trouts were just the legal size.

Bølling Sø 1/5 – 2015

The opening day of the new pike season was spent on Bølling Sø in the pontoon boat. I was alone but did not lack Company as first met Henrik and Kasper and later Klaus and Steen whom I all have fished with before. Soon after I started I got three pikes but all small ones and then I had a long period without any action at all. Then I met Steen and Klaus and got another one and the we met just to chat about the fishing. While we chatted Klaus had his flash fly in the Water Next to his pontoon and after five minutes his rod suddenly bended. A pike had taken the fly while it was motionless in the Water.

2015-05-01 12.25.09

So it was easy just roll in the line a the fight could begin

2015-05-01 12.25.51The only waves were from the pike


2015-05-01 12.26.47and finally Klaus can present a nice app. 8 lb. pike that was the biggest pike of the day.


2015-05-01 13.36.45

I got ten pikes and a perch. A 13 inch perch that grabbed my 8 inch flash fly. All the pikes and the perch were released and the only bigger fish I had today got tangled in som branches from a tree which there are a lot of in this lake.


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.
