To me the fishing always has been the best part of all fly fishing activities - probably the best part of my live. I don't think anything will ever change that!?
Seems like this is the same for Paul. He even had to fish in the middle of his wedding. :) One may think this to be a bit off showing. I know Paul pretty well and it is not. He is just one hell of a crazy fly fisherman who was made to be out fishing.
Besides that HUGE CONGRATS to the both of you, mate. I wish you all the best for your future, filled with lots of great moments together with Ashly!
Last week I have been fishing for pike and Zander in my home town area. Most of my time I am after catching large fish! Now in my home waters there aren't much of them avaliable. I do have plenty of water nearby, but catching large fish is quite difficult after all. Having caught a decent sized pike two days ago indeed was a fantastic start into the new season though. Couldn't have been much better.
Since we are in the middle of winter here right now the days are short and the dark nights are long. That leaves me plenty of room to tie some Tarpon flies for a Tarpon focused trip I am going to have in 2018. Details are not yet decided (different options are still in focus), but the decision to aim for catching Tarpon is made! You may find some of the flies in the pictures below.
In the weekend we will be running fly casting lessons. Lots of people have signed in and we can't wait to get started!
Live treats me well at the moment, thanks a lot for that! ;)
I wish you all some great fly fishing trips and lots of fine fishing moments to come in 2018!
Looking forward to meet as many of you as possible out somewhere along the water.
All my best
Some pictures as always...
