One of my friends had left his waders + boots in the hotel at the spot I fished roughly a week ago and as he had to go back to pick up his stuff he thought it would be wise to extend the trip with a couple of days fishing. I had no problems with some more R&R time on the trout river. Another friend had just reworked my never used splitcane rod to house the Speyco reel so this…

I found the time for a little road trip to a stream in Germany and quite frankly had a blast fishing there as it was pretty good. Stocked fish mostly but then again a lot of them and pretty strong contestants for the full flex four weight rod I was fishing with. At times the dry fly fishing was excellent as big mayflies where about and sometimes a sedge pattern produced a lot of fish. Nymph fishing was quite decent…

As the Asps where still milling in my head I had to go back to the big river. A little search on the internet revealed some information that should have been helpful  to improve my chances. One of the things written was be early on the water and so I was at the big river somewhere around 5.30 ish. Off course no people, no shipping traffic and thus clear water. What I noticed where fish in the surface … small…

With all the low water at the home stream I decided today to head in the opposite direction aka west to try my luck on the big water. I opted to go to the Ijssel river or as the Romans called it “Isala”. Big, wide, strong current and so on, a whole other dimension than what I am normally used. My timing was a bit off meaning late as it was a beautiful day and the spot I picked was…

Today I went straight to the forest to scout for the big trout that I had lost previously and to just see what was out there for me. In some parts fish where rising but only small dace from what I could tell. I fished some of the undercut banks with small nymphs and had some nibbles but no solid takes. The big trout was still around but again in such a difficult spot that I could not reach it…

As the stream is dropping by the day and the usual hotspots failed to deliver I started the morning at the mill pool. Fish came not easy but at least a couple of roach could be coaxed from under the weir on pheasant nymphs and holy grails. When the mill weir was once again automatically raised I hoped for fish to appear and go surface feeding but oddly this time nothing happened. I decided to go for plan B and…
