My lately not so hot hot-spot finally produced some roach again. I started out small and then pulled some of the big boys from under the trees. All on a small gold bead ritz-d nymph tied on a golden hook. I decided to use a fluorocarbon again as it pays to get the nymphs quickly at operation depth. Off course all the action would not last and before I knew it the fish where gone. At another spot the stream…

I had to try and catch larger fish but once again it was tough in the great outdoors. At a spot that looked like the perfect hideout for a brown trout I caught a few tiny roach and that was it. For some reason the stretch of the stream flowing through the open land yielded just  few fish. The lack of succses caused me to fish the protected waters of the stream inside the village. There I spotted tons of…

It was tough going today, instead of going to work I decided to use this sundreched day for a visit to the stream. The lack of water caused the stream to be a very low level and subsequently the fish where ultra wary. I only managed to catch a few tiny dace and a small brown trout. Tomorrow I might head out again and look up some other spots that might provide more action. The weather was warm and sunny…

With the opening of the trout season I just had to take a little visit to the stream. I spotted the black Luftwaffe aka cormorants making a flyby. The black birds in turn where being overtaken by geese presumably heading north. Trout where plenty but I just could not get to them, not much cover right now so the stockies where very wary. I expected a circus like usual but maybe the strong wind and overcast skies tempered the enthiousasm of…

With the weather service predicting lousy weather and a temperature drop for this Saturday I decided to skip work and chartered one of my friends to explore some new waters. The bad thing about today was that the fog stayed put for a long time, when we hit the water the air temperature was +1 degrees C. As you can figure action was slow but I was pretty soon into a small Dace and a Roach. The new section was…

Saturday The vice chairman of my angling syndicate requested me to shoot some pics of the water of one of the neighboring syndicates who had recently jointed our collective. The purpose of this collective was to be able to fish our stream past the sections we had leased from the landowners. While I took pictures at every bridge and feature I could find I was on the keen lookout for fish but I could not spot any live in the…

On this day I checked out some new locations which have come available to me due to a deal of my syndicate and that of the neighboring village. When I was en route to the water I spotted one of those rare white egrets parading on a field. Normally these birds are pretty shy but this one just went on doing its business. So I took the camera out and checked if everything was in working order … appearantly not…
