Back in Hungary
Monday, 18 May 2015
This is a rather late FP that I'm writing. My excuse is of course fishing! I was fishing yesterday on the Croatian Canal that is local to me, catching up with some friends, and then I dropped Ashly off at Zagreb Airport today. And what a great trip that was... the Scottish Meet, fishing the Highlands (photos uploaded this evening) and then a quick drive across Europe to Latohegy, Hungary.

Just back from a weekend of trout fly fishing at a place in Northern NSW called Uncle Billy's Retreat. A beautiful farm that holds sheep and cattle and the odd boar and piglets. I had a crap weekend for reasons I won't go into but the rest of the guys all caught loads of fish from three stocked dams - one large and two smaller ones.

I am sorry to have missed my front page last Wednesday. But I was on a mission: Teaching how to fly fish for Atlantic salmon to a group of beginners. For about one week we fished the Danish Skjern River. We fished in two shifts (4 to 5 hours each) per day: One in the morning and one in the late afternoon.

This evening I fished for trout in a river that is not a trout river, says New York state < they are mostly correct.

When fishing pike, your leader is something that needs a little special attention. With approximately 700 razor sharp teeth in its mouth, even a small pike will sever your fly from the leader easily, so you need either a wire of a fluorocarbon trace.

I've been doing a lot of teaching lately. Most of my students have been good casters who want to teach others and know they aren't very good at it. I know all about that, I wasn't very good at it when I started, but thought I was, of course....
