Mariager Fjord, 7/11 – 2015

A trip with Michael in the pontoon boats in Mariager. We went to the outer part of the fjord hoping to find some blank searun brown trouts. We fished in the shallow water and we or more precisely Michael found some fish.

The first fish seemed to be good sized and it put out a good struggle on the 4 weight rod.

After a while Michael could net it …

and present a 52 cm blank trout with loose scales.

All in all we got 6 trouts and Michael got another fine fish almost the same size as the one in the photos.

Bølling Sø. 1/11 – 2015

a solo trip to Bølling sø fishing for pike in the pontoon boat.

There was no Wind when I started out and it looked like a quiet day at the office as not much happened the first 3 hours. I got 3 pikes but I really had tp Work for them and no big ones.

I decided to stop but at the pier I talked to another guy fishing and while we talked he got one and had a hit on his lure so I decided to give it a shot for another 30 minutes. In this ½ hour I got 4 smaller pikes so it was a good decision and 7 pikes in ½ a day is for me good.

The Bahamas, week 41 – 2015

A good week fly fishing at Grand Bahama with Søren and Henrik was what we aimed for. For Henrik and Søren it was a first time fishing in the tropics.


We did the trip as DIY and rented half of this house including this fishmobile and Volvo from 1978. It did well until the alternator broke down and then it was switched to a SUV. The house was very spacious and we all had our own rooms so nothing to complaint about there.


We drove around and from Google maps satellite Photos we could find beaches that looked promising. Some times it was hard to get to the Beach as many roads were private but all in all we did quite well. Some times the flats were not that big and could only be fished at certain tides but our worst enemy was the clouds. Approximately half of the time it was clouded and that really made the fishing hard.


The second day we got the first bones on a sandy flat.

We got a lot af different species here a pompano

a porgy



Søren got this nice spanish mackerell that really puts up a good fight



A very yellow tailed snapper


IMGP5842One day I to my big surprise first got a blue parrot fish and later I lost in the second long run a triggerfish but I had forgotten my camera. Søren managed the last day to get a triggerfish though this was not a hard fighting fish but a new specie to mark for Søren.


P1050294We fished two days with guide and that opened opportunities at VERY large flats. The first day was not very succesful and we did not see many fish, but as you can see we did get some bones.

The guide had never before seen fly Fishers with a stripping basket but he was very impressed with the distances we could cast without much effort.

Once we fished to a school of bonefish surrounded by 4-5 sharks and on one of the flats a 8-9 feet tiger shark swimmed next to the boat. If you click on the link you can see a video of the tiger shark.

We had several incidents with the sharks with an outcome that made it hard to release the fish



another fish that ended as shark food.


One day Henrik forgot his cap in the car but he found a construction worker helmet on the beach and he was back in business.



the second day with our guide William started very wet but luckily it became a good day with many schools of bonefish tailing and then it does not get any better.



From time to time we got smaller bonefish but we also got some very decent fish





A couple of times we had a double hook-up. Here Henrik and Søren are busy each with a bonefish.

The bonesfish were the star of the trip though we did see a few big permits and next time we will try to get a shark to take a fly. The people in the Bahamas were very nice and helpful in a way that exceeded our expectations so a very positive impression.



Randers Fjord, 3/10 – 2015

A day in the pontoon boats with Klaus and 2 x Henrik. The intention was to drift with the incoming tide from Udbyhøj and then drift back with the outgoing current. As the incoming current never really picked up we had to use fins, oars and motor to get to Stenrevet where we had our lunch.

The weather started cloudy and then turned sunny with little or no Wind so the conditions were nice but not the best for the fishing. And today was a day with many soft contacts but not a lot of fish hooked. Most of the fish we got were quite small.

2015-10-03 11.55.09

When I approached Henrik near Stenrevet he got a good hook-up and had to fight for a while…


2015-10-03 11.58.44untill he could present this nice trout at app. ½ meter.


2015-10-03 16.38.43

just before we stopped I got a good fish in shallow Water. It was a 55 cm fish that will end its days as sushi material :-)




Mariager Fjord, 26/9 – 2015

A trip alone wadefishing from the North side of the fjord. I fished for 2 hours and did not see or feel anything so I started to believe it was a bad day. Then I met two Guys and they told about some action and while I talked to one them (Christian) he caught two nice fish and we saw several in the Water.


Christian presenting his second fish while we talked. Christian was very kind and gave me one of his favorite fly for Mariager – a “kobberbasse” and it proved very efficient as I got 6 trout later with half of them above the required minimum size. They were all released as I was not in a killing mode today ;-)

Bredningen, 17/9 – 2015

After last weeks trip I found out that I should fish more as it was good fun so I met with Henrik for a trip around noon fishing in the pontoon boats for pike. It was quite windy despite the weather forecast and we started out quite slow. Henrik had some pikes that attacked his fly but they did not  get hooked. I fished with a surface fly that looked really good but it did not produce anything. After Henriks third pike attack I changed my fly and when I picked it up from the Water after the first cast a good-sized pike attacked but it was not hooked.


But this new fly in White and red brought more luck and I got a couple of pikes before lunch. It was fish in the 5-6 Pounds range so not big fish but not small fish.


Before lunch I also got this nice perch. Actually I think it is a personal best on the fly as it was more than 2 Pounds (1,050 kg).

After lunch Henrik finally got some pikes as well and I also had one more but the perch made my day.


Mariager Fly Cup 12/9 – 2015

After a month without fishing due to bad excuses I fished from early morning to noon on the South bank of Mariager Fjord. Bombayfly held the annual Fly Cup and with 176 contestants we can say that this is the biggest fly only contest in Denmark. As member of the arrangement committee I was naturally very pleased and to me it looked like the participants agreed. We were lucky that the weather was very good as it was quite warm and a bit windy and mostly clouded so all day was fishable. Despite the number of people I fished more or less alone all the time.


2015-09-12 07.54.44

I had many contacts and caught 14 trouts but not in a size that gave any hope for a Price among the 10 largest so everything was released.


2015-09-12 12.45.55

Around noon Michael and Morten from Bombay fished their way to me. After some chatting Michael went into the water and soon after he was into a nice fish.


2015-09-12 12.47.44

He landed a very nice 1,5 kg very well conditioned trout that earned him a 7th place in the competition.


2015-09-12 13.42.27One of the prices that was in the Draw, was this stripping basket decorated by Simon – the house artist of Bombayfly.


2015-09-12 16.15.14

Here the fished just before the weighting ended. The top five were all above 2 kg and the Winner was Torben “Pip” Kondrup with a 2,9 kg fish. The fishing this year was much better than last year and I think that everyone got fish  but there were many small fish that was released.
