Harz 08-2014

As the Harz trip earlier in the year was most enjoyable we decided to go for seconds at the end of August about a week before the season there closed. The weather was not exactly according to the predictions with rather cool mornings and even a full day and night of constant rain. Still fishing was pretty good and I even managed to catch the largest brown trout of the season in this location which is more known for the…

We have come into a weather pattern lately where frequent showers allthough short of duration dump locally a lot of water on the land.

Some scouting on satellite imagery made me conclude that a small weir would be the best…

My intention was to sight fish for chub with dry flies at my chub hotspots but I had not taken into account the flooding that had occurred locally over the border. My hot spots carried a lot of murky water so I could not see any fish and also did not spot rising fish. To make it al worse I did not even manage to catch a tiddler. And it all started so promising when I started the day and…
