Gudenåen, 29/1-2012

Tried for the second time to flyfish for pikes in Gudenåen just below Tange sø at winter time. But as the first time without success. I met four other fly fishers and only one of them had caught two small pikes, so this was not the perfect day for fishing here.

 Every ten minutes you had to remove ice from the guides on the rod. But despite the poor result and the cold weather it was a good day as Denmark won the european championship in team handball and in a week I will be in Venezuela fishing for bonefish 🙂

Djursland 15/1 2012

A trip with Thomas, Peter and Niels to Djursland for sea-trout. We started at Kobberhagen where we fished for a couple of hours and the only thing we saw was this curious seal. We stopped when nine more fishermen came to the spot. No one had experienced any luck during the day which I think is typically for a calm, sunny, cold winter day. We then tried an hour in Begtrup Vig with more luck. I got a trout just below the minimum size and Niels got a smaller fish. Here the we fished in a head wind so it soon became too cold. When we drove home we could see ice on the water in the shallow inlets in the inner part of the bay. I definitely prefer to fish in warmer conditions so I look forward to the Los Roques trip in three weeks time 🙂
