With the chub being so responsive lately I once again fished my chub hotspot. The first thing I noticed was the ridiculously low water levels at my favorite chub hole. Hole being maybe the wrong word as the depth was not a mere 10cm … in the middle of the stream. Even the landing of the fly + leader on the water scared the chub and made them scatter into all directions. After landing a few fish the action was…

As I left the stream the day before around Bat time … aka dusk I had some difficulties in getting up in the morning. Instead of going fishing as it was already afternoon I headed straight for the pub for lunch.

First though it was the main river and a spot behind a small hydroelectric plant yielded some small fish for me, a very shallow section. The particular hotspot at the feeder-stream for me was a wide and flat section in front…

High summer and low water, it continued to be a struggle. Very picky fish today but the usual assortment came to surface again after a lot of effort. I was almost about to toss dry flies at some pretty decent dace in the surface untill the dace suddenly where gone. The culprit … a civilian tossing bread at the other side of the bridge I was fishing … those dace were conditioned to duck feeders …. The trout where imitating…
