Rumble in the Jungle Week
Monday, 27 July 2015
This week, to celebrate my successful return to the Jungle and the subsequent capture of a sizeable Snakehead and Jungle Perch, I am running the Sexyloops "Rumble in the Jumble" Week: buy any Hot Torpedo fly rod, and receive absolutely free, one Thunderbolt Flyline of your choice AND a Sexyloops Stealth Master camouflage cap. This is a really fantastic offer, worthy of another magnificent Snakehead, and so if you're thinking about buying the best flyrod in the world, or even if you're not, then this is the time to do so! Just order as per normal and in the notes let us know which flyline you'd like - or drop me an email. (Sexyloops flylines are only currently available in 5 and 6 weights. This fantastic Rumble in the Jungle offer is available for one week!)

My casting progress is not going as well as I had hoped. I am frustrated and feeling useless especially when it comes to the double haul.

Many years ago the editor of the former German fly fishing magazine „Der Fliegenfischer“ published a photo presenting a fly fisherman lying pretty relaxed on the river bank watching a HUGE fish splashing right in the middle of the river. The editor asked what one would see in this picture? Back then I was 20 years old and replied to see a fly fisherman who obviously lost his fire!

Last summer I concentrated on the Børgefjell and Lierne area in the southern part of northern Norway.
I have been fishing there for a while and finally had a chance to spend several weeks. Living and fishing up there feels like «a hundred years ago».
Let's get on with it!! Days 5-10!!

There are more adventures waiting and I have been advised to get on with it !!
Again the time warp got me this is late!!

In Denmark, we have a lot of relatively (and quite) small rivers, which hold sea trout during the season. Some are actually too small to fish in a meaningful way with a fly rod, and some, although small, offer great fishing, beautiful scenery, sea trout - and challenges to the fly fisher!

There's been a bit of talk this week from Bernd and Lars about fishing at dusk and through into the night time. What's really interesting reading there FPs is that they've arrived at similar conclusions whilst going against the general consensus. Note - fish fast! All the talk of night time has reminded me of just how much I enjoy that magical hour just before dark and then the hour or two following.
