Flyfishing Germany – Sept. 10th. 2006

Joop had been fishing the river some days ago and told me about large schools of roach that would attack any dry flythat landed on the surface.He even had some shots at brown trout in the upper reachesof our river.So yesterday we where ready for another visit to our river.The sky was cloudless and the weather service predicted a warm sunny day.When we arrived at the river we wondered where all the fishhad gone. There was hardly a single fish feeding in the…

Flyfishing Germany – July 2nd. 2006

Yesterday we once again fished in our stream in Germany.The weather was tropical with very high temperatures and bright sunshine.These conditions would make fishing tough so our hopes of catching fish where not that high.We left in the afternoon and picked a nice shaded stretch in one of the little towns along the river.As expected the water was low but we where surprised that the water was so discoloured.No clarityFew fish where seen although now and then Roach where cruising the surfaceJoop caught…

Eschach June 10th. 2006 – Morning session

One of the waters we where allowed to fish was the Eschach.This small stream flowed up in the mountains and was described in the hotels brochure as a very pretty and very difficult water to fish.We looked at the map and picked out the village of Eisenbach as our starting point .EschachThe stream was small indeed, to catch fish there would be challenging.At the location where we stopped the trees along the river had just been trimmed.It was too bright…

I have just finished a beautiful and productive fishing day in Germany. Fellow club member Joop picked me up at 7.30, half an hour later we where tackling up at the river bank. The morning air felt chilly and the promised sun was nowhere to be seen. Checking out the good spots, The mayflies that where so abundant a few days ago where not to be seen. So instead of tying on a klinkhamer dry I decided to fish a…

Today I went to Germany and visited my trout stream. In recent days the river was flooding but water flows had returned almost to normal. There where some mayflies on the water but most where intercepted mid air by the local bird population. Now and then you could see a rising fish but nothing consistent. Even the normally abundant roach seemed to be absent. The usual trout hideouts still contained fish and soon I had a trout racing after the…

A visit to a nearby stream in the middle of Winter. Expectancy was low and so where the results as we could not get any fish to bite. Time has passed and this straightened stream has been renaturized in certain parts. Inpassable weirs have been removed which should make migration of fish possible if they are not eaten first by the hordes of cormorants that plague our local waters. This particular stream holds mostly Dace and Roach in selected spots…
