This year we were 11 fly fishermen that went to the coast around Ystad to fish for searun Brown trout from pontoon boats. This year we rented a summer cottage near Kåsaberga which is nicely centered for the spots we normally visit.
Henrik also got a rare catch when he landed this rainbow trout.
I had a VERY slow start as did not feel any fish the first couple of days. I was driving with Per and he started quite well as he got 3 trouts the first day but as they were kelts they were all released again.
The fly was a no-name pattern, a small dark grey palmer hackle fly that could imitate the small gammarus we saw in the shallow water. That day it proved succesful as I later got two more fish on this fly.
It is nice to get two fine fish in one day so a big smile.
As always in these areas we saw many kites and some cranes heading north for the summer. This year we also saw osprey and a sea eagle and the last day at Kåseberga we saw more than 10.000 eiders towards their summer resident further North.
The fishing was not as good as normally. We mostly got blank fish but too small and only a few kelts. Leif made a 3 minute video that nicely sums up the trip. Be sure to Watch it in HD.
