Today we have an article from Roland Bachofer on his experiences with Tenkara Fly Fishing. I promised a new beginning to SLTV today with Five Minutes of Fly Fishing and this will certainly happen, but it's going to be later in the week and most probably starting next Monday - I want to start with a bag, but the fish have had different ideas! I've also promised a step-by-step to tying the Vince Loud-Mouth Popper variation that I use - this will happen too, and at the same time no doubt. :) So here it is, Tenkara Flyfishing...
Baitfish From L
Tuesday, 10 January 2017
In trout fishing, drag is often thought of as a bad thing. It can be, but sometimes creating drag, or more precisely, enhancing drag, can be the key to success. This can be especially true when slinging big, "swimmy looking" stuff. A good example of complementing the current to enhance a streamer presentation is a technique that my father has humorously referred to as “The Baitfish from ‘L’”. I've not heard a better name for it, so that's what you get here.

A serious fly fishing adventure is coming up to me right now. Can't wait!

There are a couple of regulars at my local carp lake who, to be honest, are a bit of a pain in the arse. Their friends also know they can be a bit stupid and show them a degree of contempt at times, whilst barely tolerating them generally. You’d think that they’d temper their behaviour in light of their pals disdain but they carry on oblivious, taking delight in spoiling things – especially when they see a fluff chucker on their coarse angling venue. It’s a smallish estate lake and Tracy and I do our best to tuck ourselves away in quiet corners so as not to disturb the bite alarm brigade, however as soon as we hook a fish (and sometimes before) these two are there seeing what we’re up to with our ‘strange’ tackle and typically getting in the way. One’s a duck and the other is a goose.

Håvard Stubø /Jazz & Flyfishing have released another short film. One of these "must see" films. Not only for flyfishers ...
The stuff they produce differs very much from the "car - cast cast cast - some fish - campfire - back in car again" go-pro productions with "the tallest man on earth" type music in the background. OK, they sit in cars too sometimes, but than it´s Volvos ;-)
Anyway - this is proper film-making with humour, a real story to tell. ... see for yourself.

My friend, Daniel D Holm and myself had a trip planned to fish baltic, brackish water pike on Rügen next weekend. Unfortunately we had to cancel as the weather forecast turned and promised subzero temperatures in the week leading up to and over the weekend.
Get Involved in 2017
Sunday, 15 January 2017
Today’s FP includes no fishing tips, fantastic stories, or casting secrets, but the topic, should you choose to participate, may greatly influence your angling and the angling of many others for the better. This FP is merely a call to encourage everyone out there to get involved and participate in the regulatory or political element of your local fisheries management. Consider making “GET INVOLVED” one of your 2017 New Year’s Resolutions.
