Djursland 9/4 – 2017

Our original plans were ruined by the wind so we ended at Kobberhage on Djursland. We were Henrik, Torben and myself and planned a pontoon trip for searun brown trout.

Before we had entered the water we saw the first seal and not the last and as we also saw porpoises several times it was clear that the fish could be stressed and that may explain that the fishermen we met all told that the season had been very bad compared to normal.

After a couple of hours I got a small fish below the minimum size,

soon after I got a better sized fish, it was in the mid 60´es cm but needed to gain a lot of weight to be well conditioned. After lunch we continued but without any luck and these two fish turned out to be the only contacts for us all day.

Mariager Fjord 1/4 – 2017

A trip alone in the pontoon boat to Mariager fjord. Last weekend not much happened and after a couple of hours I thought that this would be the same. But after lundbreak a fish showed at he surface and 15 minutes later a nice trout grabbed the fly and started a serie of jumps.

it was a well conditioned trout that measured 50 cm and 1.51 kg.

 

It took a worm pattern and when I gutted it I saw that it had feasted heavily on polychaete worms.

Nice fish but not for me :-)

This weekend I was out for the first time in almost 4 months but I did not have much luck. Fortunately others have done better.

In can very much recommend this article from Globalflyfisher (a very recommendable website) about a fantastic sea run brown trout.

And my friend Leif also did well this weekend and he made a smal video

Have fun reading and viewing and hopefully I will come back soon with news of my own

A non fishing friend of mine returned a Linekurv used for oyster collection to me like this around Christmas. You can not have too many friends like that 🙂

Limfjorden 7/1 – 2017

With a non working right arm due to surgery there will be some time without any fly-fishing.  But the annual oyster trip with Bombay to Limfjorden could be managed. This year we were 8 people attending the trip including a few hangarounds and as usually we had a blast collecting oysters, eating them au naturel, preparing oysters, eating them gratinated in different varieties, having a drink and telling stories.

Fjellerup, 4/12 – 2016

A trip in the pontoon boats with Henrik to Fjellerup. I did not have high hopes for this trip as the other Henrik had fished the spot the day before without any luck at all but we gave it a shot despite the cold weather. After a shaky start as Henrik forgot his waders so he had to lend a pair from Jan that luckily lives quite nearby. We fished the spot where Henrik last year got a beautiful 10 pounder and there I got this nice fish around the ½ meter mark.

Later Henrik got a 35 cm fish but then the party was over. After lunch we did not see or feel anything but I was content as this will be my last trip for a while as next week I will have surgery in my shoulder. So I wish everyone a merry Christmas and hope to be able to bring more reports in the year to come – hopefully with a better functioning shoulder.

 

 

Mariager Fjord, 22/10 – 2016

A pontoon boat trip with 2 x Henrik from Bombayfly. We started in the dark and fished until noon where we stopped as the wind and rain drained us for energy. I excelled in catching nothing  while Henrik got three trouts. No photo as he was very discreet. The other Henrik fished with a sinking 3 line in 3 feet of water and that payed off as he got a flounder 🙂
