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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Andreas showed some of his streamer flies.

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”.
