The last fishing day was upon us, after an early breakfast it was time to check out. The hotel manager was a funny guy, he asked us why we wanted to check out. My friend stated “we are out of money”, he replied “I don’t believe you”. It was not true that we where out of money but this trip was a whole lot more expensive than our regular trips. But then again it was worth it every dime as…

After a second fishing session to the mountain stream we once again spend the afternoon session at the main river. There was a nice spot we wanted to visit that lay just downstream of a reservoir. We stopped at a nearby bridge to see if anybody was fishing the spot we intended to visit. We spotted no fisherman but we did notice that some monster chub and a single large trout where moving about in the water. As usual my…

The morning session took place at a small stream up in the mountains. In the afternoon we would hit the main river again. At the river the water level had gone down quite a bit since the rainfallon Monday. The sun came out in full force, luckily some clouds and a light breeze made it tolerable to be outside. We would visit the same section of the river as we had done the previous day. As expected the fish where…

Day 2 of our fishing trip had arrived. After a good breakfast we headed out to find a new fishing spot for the day. My friend wanted to fish upstream which left me just one direction to go. The water had risen and the river was slightly murky due to the rainfall of the previous day. I could not spot any rising fish although small mayflies where on the water. The first stretch of the river that I fished seemed…

On the first fishing day of the trip it was obvious where we would fish, the spot where the fish had been spotted on the previous day. The pool with the fish was however to small to be hammered by two people so I told my buddy he could have a go at the good spot. I had to move downstream and the spots I came across did not hold any of the big fish we had seen upstream. After…

On a recent fishing trip to Germany’s deep south we had the chance to fish a tiny stream called Eschach up in the mountains on the border of Bavaria with Baden-Württemberg. It was a challenging water where it was difficult to approach the fish unseen. I managed to scare most fish away but managed to catch a few small wild brown trout in the deeper sections where the disturbed water surface blocked my movements. This small water was more or…

On August the 5th. we made our way from the Dutch border to southern Germany for a five day fishing trip. We estimated it would take us about 8 hours driving time to reach our hotel. It was Sunday when we left which meant that the German Autobahn was free of trucks (by regulation), we made good tracks. Our fishing licenses issued by the hotel would be valid from Monday onwards but we guessed if we would get there early…
