Monday. October 23. Fishing is almost over, it's fly-tying time

We are only few days from fishing stop for this season. This means that it is time for tying flies. I have just started to lay out a lot of pattern description, and from the start it will be shrimp flies for use in fresh water. See the first twenty at this page. Shrimpflies for freshwater.

Wednesday. August 16. The fishing weather is back.

After a very hot summer, the weather has become a little more normal. We have had some rain, and because of that, fish in the rivers. There's seatrouts as well as salmons to get. River Skjern aa has been fishing good through summer, down here we have had some rain for the last three weeks, the weed has been cut in many rivers, so now its again interesting to go fishing. It's time for terrestrials, so it's good time for the dryflyfishermen.

Friday 28. July.

News on the site.

Saturday July 1. A salmon at 16 kg (approx. 35 pounds) 119 cm (3½ feet) is caught in River Varde aa today. The smaller river Sneum aa has given some sea trout's up to 5 kg (approx. 10-11 pounds) has been caught the last week.

After the heavy rain earlier this week it's now possible to catch a fresh running fish in the south west coast rivers. Several of my fishing friends tells that they have been in contact with big fish, mostly in River Varde aa, and in the smaller river Gels-aa. A few days ago there were caught some sea trout's up to 12 pounds. Remember that most of the sea trout fishing is done in the night time.

Right now I'm sitting on the island of Laesoe (Lęsų) up here most of the fishing from the shore are for different kind of flatfish and for mullets, but also sea trout's are to be caught at the moment, but also here, the trout fishing is done at the night time.

Thursday 25. may. Mayfly hatching in the rivers.

Today on my fishingtrip to Gels aa, there were both the big mayfly (Ephemera Danica) and the smaller ones (Heptagenia Sulphurea)
on the surface. Even a few fish were in the surface, but the windy weather don't make delicate dryflyfishing easy...
