HSK 09-2016

Went now the third time on a trout trip to the same place and everytime the water gets clearer and lower as it has not rained here decently in months. Fishing gets really difficult and the fish can spot you for miles but the deeper pools still yield fish from time to time. Nymphing has really failed me at this spot as the trout and grayling seem to ignore all my offerings. A few good downpours might get the action…

The annual fishing venue of the club was planned for today and so we joined the worm drowners for a couple of hours fishing the mill pool. My buddy had the day off for a chance ( … never go work in retail) so we counted two flyfishermen today. As usual we were more or less exiled to the shallow part of the mill pool that was holding no fish (for practical reasons). We still got hold of some of the…

It has been quite a while since we had any decent rain and frankly fishing gets kind of difficult if you fish an already shallow ditch.

First time I fished this particular stream this year and pleasantly suprised by the amount of (very wary) chub in the pools. Got one fish on the dry fly, perfect sight casting fish .. worked like a charm. Another fish fell…

Another weekend and again weather warnings. This time it actually rained but luckily the lightning storms did not happen. Again extremely low water, combined with the lowering of the weir at the watermill for the bypass they are building meant that fish where concentrated in the few left over deep pools. Never seen so many and big fish concentrated at one spot. The down side … overgrown banks and very wary fish. You could catch a few from the school…
