Early morning on a bright sunny summers day we stood on thebanks of our stream.Once again we fished the upper reaches of the stream due to recent successful trips to that section.Water levels had dropped even more than on the previous visit, someof the sandbars where now exposed to the air.There where a lot of flying insects about, most notably the big mayflies.The mayfly action did not go unnoticed with the fish so many timesloud splashes where heard.In one of the…

Flyfishing Germany – Jan. 30th. 2009

Last friday I went fishing for the first time this year.Due to hard water aka ice we could not harass the local pikeso we had to go elsewhere to fish.Now over the border in Germany almost all rivers are closed due to the spawning season of trout.Only rivers that have sufficient Grayling stocks are open and those rivers are far far away.One of the trout rivers we frequented had however started a stocking program for Grayling.This year was the first…
