Lilleåen, 10/8 – 2015

An evening trip to Lilleåen where I haven´t had much luck untill now. This night I did not catch anything but I had one fish hooked. I lost it and later I thought it was a pike but still better than nothing. I also had a searun brown trout that grabbed the fly but it wasn´t hooked.PART_1439328436580

I met another fly-fisher Klaus who had done better as he had this nice trout. We had a nice chat about the fishing here and everywhere else. I must say that all the fishermen I have met at Hadsten LF Water has been very friendly and helpful which I really appreciate. The quality of the Photo you can blame on me as it was with my new cell phone which I am not familiar with.

Beautiful snook

Uggerby å, 18/7 – 2015

The day after joining a concert in Northern Jutland I sepnt the afternoon fishing with Palle in Uggerby å. We were not that prepared and I only had my #4 dry fly rod and the weather was very windy and sunny so conditions were not that good and we kwew next to nothing about the stream.

It is popular to fish with big dry flies for sea run Brown trout so I decided to try that except I did not have the often used foam flies. I tried instead with a caddis pattern but my hopes were not that high as we had the day before been canoing Down the stream and seen absolute no flies and no surface activity. But out of the blue came this small trout and grabbed my fly so a bit of succes. was bagged.

 

2015-07-18 15.29.01 (3)

Later we tried another part of the stream and I cog two more trouts with this 30 cm fish as the best. I know they catch some very good sea run Browns here so I may come back another time better prepared.

 

 

 

 

 

Rena week 28

This year we went to Rena that runs into Glomma instead of going to Alvdal and fish in Glomma and Folla as we have done many times before. I drove with Henning and we had arranged to meet Henrik  and then be able to arrange to driving so we could drift down the river. When we arrived Lars was also there so the logistics were even easier.

Normally we started close to Rena Fish camp and then drifted 10-12 km. Her we are ready from the starting point where the current was quite slow and there were many whitefish.

 

2015-07-04 17.43.08

The first two days were very warm with many insects and we could find graylings that were surface active. The first day I got 8 graylings with the two largest at 50 cm so I was very content.

 

2015-07-04 18.23.26

The next day I also got a good amount of nice sized grayling up to 51 cm.

 

2015-07-04 14.54.51

Then we had a cold day but with a big hatch af Bäetis Rhodani.

2015-07-04 15.26.08

You can get a small impression of the numbers of small may flies on this Photo, they were everywhere and with that amount of natural flies it was not easy fishing. Some times it was hard to see your own fly among the naturals.

 

11143518_868809656488864_2365946987675272219_n

The first days we stayed in our tent as all room were booked and our tent neighbor Tobias got this 4 pound trout one night from the guide boat.

 

2015-07-06 21.13.53

There were many different kinds of may flies and stone flies. Here one of the yellow Sulphurea.

 

2015-07-09 11.39.47

We had two cold and very windy days. One of these days the fishing camp had arranged a workshop where very skilled fly tiers showed their skills and you could also try splitcane rods and just tell stories to equally narrow minded people like your self. Here Markus and Anders are tying dry flies.

 

2015-07-09 12.57.54

Anders made this parachute dry fly in size 32. I must admit that I was very impressed.

 

2015-07-09 11.39.57

Andreas showed some of his streamer flies.

 

2015-07-09 12.03.02

Here some mice flies that will make you reach for the trap.

 

2015-07-09 11.40.10

And some streamer patterns that he actually uses for trout. I would like to try that.

We had to adjust to some of the trout fishing as it was done blind presenting the dry fly close to the banks when drifting. After a few days we got the technique and from the on I got 7-14 trouts a day. Unfortunately I lost my best trout after a fight for several minutes . Here is one of Henriks trouts a well built brown trout.

This was the first time we tried Rena but we really would like to try it Again as the camp had a good atmosphere, nice people and there were some very fish in the stream, so like Arnold says: “I´ll be back”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laura and Danilo, Caper Cod 2015

This year at Cape Cod I like last year met Laura and Danilo from Italy. And like last year they have made a video from their trip and I can recommend it as it gives a taste of what the fishing is about. So enjoy

Cape Cod week 24 – 2015

A quick report from our trip as I have loads of work to do at the moment.

For the fifth time I fished Cape Cod and this time it was with Thomas, Peter, Carsten and Caspar. After a very tiresome road trip from New York Friday afternoon we made it to our rented house and next morning everyone were eager to get started. The first morning we met our companions from last year and they could tell that the fishing had been quite slow and this morning proved this as we only got a few small fish.

 

2015-06-06 21.47.59

In the afternoon we tried another spot and that was a good idea. When we arrived we could see many fishermen and as soon as we entered the beach we could see people hooked up. There was a guy with a Linekurv and he got this nice bluefish just as we arrived. It was Christian from Haarby, Denmark and he could tell that they had been pulling bluefish in most of the day. He also told that surface flies and wireleader was a must.

We had a problem as we only had a few surface flies and almost no wireleader but that just intensified everything when you know that at any time you can be cut off.

2015-06-06 22.14.15

I started with a regular flatwing fly and got soon into a bluefish

2015-06-06 22.15.45

I managed to land it without wireleader and we took one for the pan. The bluefish were all around the 27 inch mark and they jumped and gave a very intense fight

 

2015-06-06 23.45.49

All in our Group got fish  and we were all excited over this fantastic fishing, here Peter presents one of his four bluefish.

2015-06-06 23.39.19

here are the rest of the team casting for bluefish. I had to stop early as my shoulder did not like all this casting with the right arm.

I got a surface fly from Caspar and retrieving this fast and just wait for it to be attacked in a vicious manner is very addictive. The seventh bluefish that I hooked on the surface fly bit my leader and then it had to go back to a flatwing.

There were many fishermen casting BIG surface plugs very far out and they got up to 20 fish per hour so it was wild and something we all would love to try again.

 

2015-06-08 15.59.41

The next day we tried at Brewsters flat. As you may see we were not the only ones that got that idea.

 

2015-06-08 15.48.08

The fishing was a bit slow but like last year I met Laura and Danilo from Italy and Danilo got this keeper so he was very content.

 

2015-06-10 15.30.41

The third day the weather was nice and we went kayacking with Scott and Tom. Here we have the chance of sight fishing on the sand bars.

 

P6070040

On one of the first bars I spotted a good fish in less than 2 feet of water and was lucky to get it. It was a 32 inch fish and our first keeper this year so I was very happy. 30 minutes later I had a similar sized fish that came off after a couple of minutes but that could not spoil my day.

 

2015-06-10 19.52.18

Two days later we went kayacking again with Scott and Tom and things repeated itself more or less as I got this 30 inch keeper and lost a bigger one 10 minutes later. Again after fighting it for a couple of minutes

 

2015-06-10 20.50.50

This fish we kept as we every year like to make one striper meal. This year it was pan fried fillets with new potatoes, sweet corn on the cob, aspargus and homemade Hollandaise sauce.

For the first time were we able to go on a third kayack trip and this time Bruce also joined us. Bruce has a good track record as we almost allways have the best fishing when he joins the Group.

 

2015-06-12 22.43.48

this year only added to his record as Thomas got into a very serious fish.

 

2015-06-12 22.45.13

After a long fight Thomas got it into shallow Water and we could see that it was a big fish

 

2015-06-12 22.47.33

And finally Thomas could present a new personal best with this fantastc 38 inch striper.

To sum things up we had a terrific trip despite the number of fish were less than normally. We had a fantastic bluefish adventure and three days with fantastic sight fishing and we got four keepers and lost three after long fights. And furthermore it is allways good to come and visit our American friends so I hope we can come back another time.
