Buzzers on a 4wt
Monday, 20 April 2015
It's been fun to fish the UK reservoirs again. I do like this sort of fishing; I grew up fly fishing the reservoirs and I have to say they have changed, and for the better. Catch and Release has IMO much improved the fishing. One needs now to fish imitatively and of course the Stillwater scene is different and we are much better anglers in general. Something I have realised and started to take note of, is the benefit of fishing lighter tackle... back in the old days I was fishing "light" with a 7-weight, and then a 6-weight, and later a 5-weight... now however I am a believer in fishing the 4-wt.
Casting and getting it right
Tuesday, 21 April 2015
Okay, so it's time to get serious, and I mean really serious, about my cast. Paul will be the instructor, alongwith numerous videos from the Sexyloops site, but it will involve a lot of practice, videos, frustration, blisters and more frustration to get it right. But we don't plan on stopping at just ordinary... we plan to go beyond and to have me casting at least as well as most men in Australia. That's the plan, at least - just hope I can live up to my instructor's and my hopes. My dream is to get the front position of any boat I go out in (pointed out by Paul after tuna trip).
10 Common Fly Casting Demonstration Faults

During the past weekend we have been on the Danish Fly Festival in Kolding, Denmark. The Danish Fly Festival has always been one of my favorite fly fishing events. It always was well organized to be a great meeting point for lots of expert fly fishermen. Most well known fly fishermen have been on that show!

Being Danish - and Scandinavian, tubeflies have been an intregral part of my flyfishing and flyfishing right from the beginning. Tubeflies are great for a lot of things. I fish them a lot in the river of course, where they offer a lot of advantages. One advantage is that you can control hook placement with the length of the tube. A longer tube places the hook further back, which can be advantageous for sea trout, who often "take short".

The 2015 EWF show near Munich is now history and appears to have been a big success. Over 3500 attendees and it looked to me like a good time was had by all. The beer garden was very busy early both days, the casting ponds were full, vendors very busy....
