Fly Fishing Trips

Bernd Ziesche | Wednesday, 22 June 2016

All year round I am hosting different educational fly fishing trips. Right now we are fly fishing the Norwegian river Glomma and it's tributaries. Grayling, Brown trout, pike and perch are on our list. For me this is a fantastic area to teach fly fishing. Simply a lot of (only wild) fish are available!

The last days we had great fly fishing with the dry fly, the nymph and the streamer as well. We learnt to fly cast and how to present the fly using several different techniques. Moving our new fly casting techniques from the grass to the water many fish directly proved us to have seriously improved our fly fishing techniques. The river Glomma is a perfect basement for a fly fishing teacher.

Many thanks to Hein van Aar and Gudmund Nygaard for supporting us with lots of great information about the Glomma and all the water of the area. If you will ever be fishing these places I recommend to check:
Kvennan Fly Fishing Zone (Hein van Aar) and Fishspot (Gudmund Nygaard) for the perfect information and for excellent support in fly fishing all waters available here.

Glomma mainly holds grayling - lots of them. We caught several excellent graylings between 40 and 50cm. Decent sized fish though. Simply we are having a fantastic fly fishing trip. It couldn't be any better!?

We will fly fish until Saturday and then move directly over to the Norwegian fjord to fly fish the ocean. I can't wait to be at the fjord as well. Right now I will teach to tie proper streamers for Brown trout fishing and then we will chase Brownies of course.

Great week to all of you!

All my best
Bernd

P.s.: It was nice to have our front page writer Thomas Z├╝llich visiting us as well. He is a great fly tier and demoed us his fine dry fly techniques. Thanks a lot, mate!
