Flyfishing Germany oct. 28th. 2007

After the tropical fishing in Florida I went to my usual fishing haunts in Germany to get used to the local climate again.In the morning hours we visited one of the smaller streams first.All I could manage was the smallest yellow perch that ever dared to attack a streamer.My buddy Joop did a whole lot better by catching a nice rainbow trout.Fishing was not that good in our little stream but at least we enjoyed the colourful foliage of fall.In…

Fishing Germany August 26th.After the two trips to the Harz Mountains it was time to fish one the nearby German streams for a chance.I took the train to Germany and after 50 minutes I arrived at my destination.My first intention was to fish the canalized part of the river and then especially the outflow ofthe sewage treatment plant.I was unpleasantly surprised when the stream was fenced off by electric wire and the farmer had put sheep and cows in the…

Germany – Harz mountains August 10th. 2007

Last week one of my fellow flyfishingclub members called me if I was interested ina short fishing trip. May basic response to such question was always with the counter question “do cows eat grass?”So that issue was solved, the next issue was where to go.Basically we would have to choose between a four hours drive to the Bode River in formerEastern Germany or the Diemel River in the federal state of Hessen.The weather predictions where extremely bad during our departure, flooding…

Flyfishing Germany July 8th. 2007

The fishing in our first German river had been so dismal during this summer that we skipped that water altogether and went to the river of club nr. 2 instead.Our first stop was the pool behind the watermill to see if any trout had survived that constant attacks of the conventional fisherman.Apparently the other guys had done a good job of cleaning the trout out since all I caught where very tiny yellow perch.I always wondered what happened to the…

Flyfishing Germany – Harz region June 17th 2007

Day 4 of my Harz trip was another travel day, we did not have much time for fishing but we would still be able to throw in a few hours before we left.Maybe we could still manage to catch a few of the larger stray rainbows that people where talking about.Since our schedule was tight we drove straight to a spot had yielded us many fish on previous visits.One of the good spots.I was quickly into my wading gear so…

Last week I was on another extended fly fishing trip to Germany.The destination this time was the North-eastern part of the Harz mountain regionIn former Eastern Germany.Since my driver had not installed a navigation system in his car we had to find ourRoute the old way and thus as usual we missed the proper highway exit.Instead of heading east we suddenly went south the mishap was corrected quickly and weArrived at our final destinations just 15 minutes later than planned.Our…

Flyfishing Germany June 9th. 2007

My buddy Joop and I went to Germany this weekend on our first trip to the local fishing ground since our successful Southern Germany trip.After visiting southern Germany and catching ridiculous amounts of trout we knew that fishing the home waters would be tough.On the last trip my wading shoes had fallen apart so the first thing to do was to visit the tackle shop and get new ones.Since I was due to leave on another grand trip pretty soon…

Flyfishing Germany, April 28th. 2007

Yesterday I went out with a friend fishing the local stream for one purpose, to catch chub.The stretch I normally fish has no chub whathowever but far way downstream these fish are present.The first spot I tried for the chub was below a weir.I fished with a gold bead pheasant tails plus indicator and probed alldeeper sections but to my surprise got no hits.I had expected at leasted a twitch from a roach or perch but nothingof that.Fishing below the…

Flyfishing Germany april 15th. 2007

Today I tried to repeat yesterday performance but I failed to do so.It was even hotter than on the previous day, the maximum temperature was 84 F. We fished at river nr. 1 but did not encounter any aggressive trout.I saw a few fish scoot along the stream but had no single take.My excuse was that it was just to hot.Since we stocked river nr. 2 yesterday we returned there to see if the fish had settled and where active. Large parts…
