Drifting with the fly in pontoon boats from Kongensbro to Tange Sø with Henrik og Thomas. This is allways a great trip where you cover a lot of water and see many birds of different species. I started the day with a flash fly mounted with a propel (made by Morten Bundgaard) in front. Before the lunch break I got one small pike with this setup.


After lunch I changed to a heavier fly and changed the propel to a disc also made by Morten. With this setup I could fish a bit deeper even with my floating line. At a time we met two fellow fly fishers in a boat, and they really had found the right spot. They had been around the lake without any luck and was about the change to spinning gear when they started to hook pikes on the fly. And they seemed to be able to keep on hooking pikes in this spot. As one of the fishermen never had caught a pike on fly before, it was nice to see this new pike fly fisher being born.


In the end we – in the pontoonboats – caught 13 pikes, which is quite good but we did not connect with any of the bigger fish so we have do it over another time.  As usual Henrik got the majority and the biggest ( app. 9 lbs.) but as I got five, I will not complain.
