It rained cats and dogs but I just had to try to catch something. With the stream rising and turning into coffee color I had to be quick and was lucky to find a few perch willing to eat fly. Icing on the cake was the brown trout that chased the streamer twice. Switched from gray to black streamer and the fish struck. I hooked the trout at a spot where landing was impossible so I had to jump into…

The weather was iffy yesterday so I postponed my fishing trip until today and it was a good choice. The fish cooperated and oddly the small nymphs with orange beads that where normally useless did the trick today. Also spotted a couple of trout, landed two of them and will get the rest the next week because I now know where they hide

In the winter months the fishing in the small streams I frequent usually comes to a halt as fish seem to dissappear for overwintering. Since temperatures where favorable I could not resist to visit one of the streams to look for myself how things where going. It looked pretty bleak in the outdoors as most trees had shed their leaves. Still there where a few midges on the waters surface and I even spotted a rising fish. If I had…

Trout season was almost done so I made a last visit to the trout section of the stream I fish. Fishing was difficult, not because of the lack of fish but because of the lack of water in the stream. The spots that still had some depth to it also had fish. Besides a few Dace and Roach and managed to catch a Brown trout and a Rainbow trout. The weather was fine with the exception of a short downpour in the morning. Fall is definetely…

I had heard some rumours that big chub where sighted inone section of the stream I fished so I had to investigate. I spotted the first big chub in the waters of the other syndicate. When I arrived at my own syndicate water I could spot many chub in a spot that was usually unfishable due to the current. With the extreme low summer water table it was now possible to get a decent drift with the fly. I hooked…

Trout season’s end is closing in fast so I tried the home stream to see if any trout where left. Unlike the UK it has not rained that much down here so the water table was really low. Some of my good pools had filled up with sand and I even noticed a shopping cart had been dumped in the stream, what next … I could only catch roach and dace allthough I did my best to catch one of…

The last fishing day was upon us, after an early breakfast it was time to check out. The hotel manager was a funny guy, he asked us why we wanted to check out. My friend stated “we are out of money”, he replied “I don’t believe you”. It was not true that we where out of money but this trip was a whole lot more expensive than our regular trips. But then again it was worth it every dime as…

After a second fishing session to the mountain stream we once again spend the afternoon session at the main river. There was a nice spot we wanted to visit that lay just downstream of a reservoir. We stopped at a nearby bridge to see if anybody was fishing the spot we intended to visit. We spotted no fisherman but we did notice that some monster chub and a single large trout where moving about in the water. As usual my…

The morning session took place at a small stream up in the mountains. In the afternoon we would hit the main river again. At the river the water level had gone down quite a bit since the rainfallon Monday. The sun came out in full force, luckily some clouds and a light breeze made it tolerable to be outside. We would visit the same section of the river as we had done the previous day. As expected the fish where…

Day 2 of our fishing trip had arrived. After a good breakfast we headed out to find a new fishing spot for the day. My friend wanted to fish upstream which left me just one direction to go. The water had risen and the river was slightly murky due to the rainfall of the previous day. I could not spot any rising fish although small mayflies where on the water. The first stretch of the river that I fished seemed…
