It was quite cold day with rain in the afternoon and again very windy.The morning was sort of ok and I could spot some dace in the surface anddrop a F-fly in their path resulting in a few hookups.I could not spot any trout and nymphing yielded only a small roach. As I received good intel on the whereabouts of trout I tried the spot I was told about in the late afternoon when the weather had calmed and the…

Quite a different picture than last week as the temperature had dropped 10 degrees and it was raining most of the day.Tried nymphing in the village but got hardly any bites, also could not spot the fish like I did last week.Two small dace where all I could muster and despite trying several locations I could not get the fish to bite. Wind and rain chased me off the open spots into the woods but also had no luck there.I…

Another hot spring day and this time I arrived early on my fishing location.The windy weather continued and there was minimal surface actitivy in the morning. A deep fished nymph yielded several roach from some pools.When the sun was out the dry fly did take some dace but again debrison the surface made the fish picky.Lost one trout on the nymph but sight fished for another and hooked it in the end.Quite a pleasant day to be fishing the stream….

It was a warm and quite windy day with a lot of insect activity .I spotted a lot of grannom and hawthorn flies so I tied on a CDC F-fly and went looking for rising or surface feeding fish.There was a lot of debris on the water and the fish which I spotted whererather picky. I managed to catch a few dace but a lot of offerings where bluntly ignored.There where some larger fish in the slow moving stretch I…

It was pretty cold in the morning, temperature near freezing.The white herons where freezing their backsides off in a pasture on my side of the border … all that white and sunshine was too much for the camera so the pics turned out pretty bad.At the stream it was windy and cold and fish where not active.All I could muster was a small roach and a dace. In the village I spotted some carp in the no fishing section and…

Out and about on this sunny warm en sometimes windy day. The only thing that sucked today was the brook lamprey I encountered at the stream.The decision to fish the urban setting did pay off as I found plenty of fish, just a shame I missed that larger trout that took my indicator. The line kept running so I set the hook hoping the trout had taken the nymph .. appearantly not … i’ll be back.

Fishing wise not that good but for the rest another great day in the outdoors.My botanical knowlegde was extended today as I found out that those smelly plantsI encountered where wild garlic (white flower).I explored one of the feeder streams further than ever before and found a nice new spot allthough no fish where biting.
