Gotland passes by in a blink of an eye now that we are facing our next hosted fly fishing trips for Atlantic salmon to Skjern river in Denmark and Mörrum river in Sweden. Thanks a lot everyone! We had a hell of a time in great company fly fishing the Swedish island Gotland for Sea trout!
In our last week on Gotland the air temperature increased again. 6 to 8 degrees Celsius was the average during day time. Most days we had sun (and sun only). The water temperature was around 5 to 6 degrees Celsius, which is best for catching a big silver Sea trout. Only these fantastic fish never come in high numbers. ;)
We caught some fine fish during the last week (even a nice pike was included). Most fish we caught on a fly I invented some years back - called Samsökiller. Since then I have caught more than 1000 Sea trout with it. Some serious big Sea trout were included as well. Another one of these fantastic Sea running Brown trout I could land in our last day of the week.
Right now we are back into fly fishing for carp, asp, pike, perch and zander before running a 2 days workshop on fly fishing for coastal Sea trout during the weekend. The week after we will start to the Skjern river in Denmark.
Lots of fly fishing ahead though.
Hopefully you'll have as much fly fishing as Paul, James, Tracy and I have at the moment. Fair to say for Paul and me this moment lasts for quite some time now. ;)
Great week to all of you!
