Flyfishing Germany March 19th. 2011

It was time for another fishing session in Germany.This time we visited a stream that is optimistically deemed a troutstream and thus was closed down untill March 16th when trout seasonopened. Since it was still early in the season the chances of catching any fish would be very slim indeed but then again there is only one wayto find out and that is to just fish.With the clear water we decided to fish one of our honey holes in the beginning…

Island of RĂ¼gen, November 2011

I spend a couple of days on the German Baltic sea Island of RĂ¼gen in pursuit of pike that actually spend time in the open sea.My friends and I hired a guide who showed us the techniques to useand the spots to fish.The pike are normally way out in the waters of the Baltic pursuing the Herring but come into the marshes and harbors in fall to overwinter.The curious thing about the place is that in that part of the…

Flyfishing Netherlands Feb.6th. 2011

Plan A today was to head to Germany to fish the river for the first time this year.I had hoped that the wind would die down today but I still could hear the wind howling this morning.I opted to go for plan B which was fishing the harbor in the town I work.Main target was perch so I took my 4-weight superfine rod plus some small zonker streamers with me.My usual good spots where pretty useless today, the strong wind…
