Casting Days in Romania
Monday, 29 June 2015
It's been a great weekend gathering again here in Romania and I'm fishing with Tudor, Lasse and a bunch of other good people today. Last year I fished the Romanian rivers here in Transylvania, but this time I'm going to fish one of the lakes, apparently there are some big trout to be caught and we shall see!!!!
Boats and Fishing
Tuesday, 30 June 2015
Something I have noticed on the board is there is not much discussion about boats as being part of a fisherman's arsenal. Am I wrong to assume boats are not that popular for fly fishing in the UK and Europe and other northern hemisphere destinations and that it is mostly places like Australia where boats are used?
Fly Fishing in the Norwegian Fjords
Wednesday, 1 July 2015
Fly fishing in the Norwegian Fjords isn’t much popular yet! Why? Actually I haven’t got a clue. The Norwegian Fjords simply offer fly fishing at its best!

Paul was so kind to invite me to write a bit about fly tying and my approach to it. I will try to keep it simple and easy to understand. In my view every flyfisher should make his own flies. It is about understanding the fish and their prey. I mostly fish dry flies because this is what I come across mostly here in Norway. However, the philosophy behind the tying and the techniques involved should be applicable to other flies as well.
This article is about how to approach the construction of mayfly imitations. I will be out fishing soon so I needed a few more fluffy things imitating what is hatching right now. E. Vulgata is on the menu these days.

This is kind of a mess, a bit of smashed potatoes, with some bacon, fish and music. I've been busier than a three peckered rooster in a hen house. but may have gotten things sorted out. thank you Harps.. and of course thank you to "he who will never shave again"
Danish Fly Casting Championships
Saturday, 27 June 2015
Last weekend, we had the Danish Fly Casting Championships. As usual a very nice event in a good atmosphere and very nice conditions. Not too much wind (and it didn't shift too much during the the day) and weather was very nice.

For me sight fishing is the ultimate element within fly fishing that peaks my enjoyment, creates excitement and what I look forward to most when thinking about going fishing. A little in the same way that dry fly fishing has an extra element, clear water just mesmerizes me. I’ll never forget the first time I saw crystal clear freestone rivers in New Zealand and feeling like my whole world just changed when compared with dark, dirty rivers in the UK. It brings a set of new challenges though as you now have to learn how to spot fish and be even stealthier than normal.
