Flyfishing Germany March 27th. 2011

Rumours where going around that the stream we fish had beenstocked so we decided to check it out.If there where trout about we would quickly notice but it stayedvery quiet on the gamefish front.Maybe the coarse fish would cooperate and so I tried my latestbloodworm creation.I got some hits on the nymph but those where not very decisive,in the end I nailed one roach – skunk avoided.From past expirience we knew that some of the people who stocked fish where…

Flyfishing Germany March 19th. 2011

It was time for another fishing session in Germany.This time we visited a stream that is optimistically deemed a troutstream and thus was closed down untill March 16th when trout seasonopened. Since it was still early in the season the chances of catching any fish would be very slim indeed but then again there is only one wayto find out and that is to just fish.With the clear water we decided to fish one of our honey holes in the beginning…

Island of Rügen, November 2011

I spend a couple of days on the German Baltic sea Island of Rügen in pursuit of pike that actually spend time in the open sea.My friends and I hired a guide who showed us the techniques to useand the spots to fish.The pike are normally way out in the waters of the Baltic pursuing the Herring but come into the marshes and harbors in fall to overwinter.The curious thing about the place is that in that part of the…
