Flyfishing in FWSW

Welcome to flyfishing freshwater/saltwater. I dedicated this site to my flyfishing exploits in salt- and freshwater. As I am located in the eastern part of the Netherlands in the town of Enschede most of my trips take place in the surrounding area. As my hometown is located right next to the border with Germany I have explored the other side of the border extensively and now spend most of my fishing time there since their waters are more suited to…

As the fishing session at the stock pond resulted in a complete blank I had to go out for a final time in order to close the fishing year off with fish.The warmer weather had finally prevailed and so I was on my way to Germany. Since my MD told that I was too heavy or as I put it I am to short for my weight I tried the bike route again,roughly 19 miles single way over hardened farm…

At this time of year my fly-fishing friends usually gather for the last official fly-fishing session, the so called “oliebollen snoeken” .Where “oliebollen” is a treat during the fishing (deep fried dumpling with raisins usually coated with sugar powder) andthe “snoek”  stands for the northern pike as target for the fishing. One of us suggested to do something different for a change and go to a put-and-take pond instead.The plan was accepted so we would trade pike for rainbow trout at…

Due to circumstances today I had to adapt and overcome which resulted in a 15 mile bikeride through the continuous rain to get to my fishing spot.My hopes where for better weather as it had rained all day on Saturday but once again the forecast was out of sync with reality. It took quite some time before I was on location and by then off course I was completely soaked.With all the rain the river was high and murky but…

With the heavy rains from yesterday during the day and the night I figured the stream mightbe finally carrying some water and maybe more than I hoped for.Early in the morning a strong wind was blowing and some rain came down.The weather service mentioned a break in the afternoon so I headed out late. En route to the stream I came across one of the feeders and for the first time since monthsI could actually hear the water flowing over…

On the warmest December 2nd ever measured I dogded the rain and strong wind at the stream. For a change I fished a different section of the river where the roach allthough small where quite active.At one spot the two dead trees leaning against each other on both banks made an eerie sound asif they would collapse any minute so I quickly relocated.If one of those trees would gave way fatal injury would be immenent. I was expecting some dace to be around…

With high pressure building over Russia and the winds shifting to the east the end of regular fishing seemed to be near. I started my fishing session late in the afternoon to be on the water when the air temperature peaked. Wind and frost had made short work of the remaining foliage and the predominant color now was brown. Normally I would have betted on the inner village stretches of the stream to get at least some bites but today it…

With the last week of my vacation the endless summer also ended. The heavy rain that we needed did not materialize, just low temperatures and some sprinkles. Temperatures plummeted abruptly last weekend, when I started my fishing session it was barely over freezing. In the early cold morning the sky was still clear, with the low temperatures I expected that the fish would not be in the biting mode. I tried one of my former hotspots and surprisingly the first…

With the ending of the trout season on oct. 20th. I went for a last time to the mill pool. It was the first time I had a real fall feeling with all this mist and the low temperatures in the morning. My action of the previous day by removing some debris from the lower weir had helped to clear the mill pool and early on fish where active at the front of the weir. The only competition at the time…
