A 30 min drive from our hood we have “de Maasplassen” at our disposal, with 3000ha of fishable water. These lakes are created due to gravel extraction, mainly in the 20th century. The reason we don’t fish there a lot is because the lakes are very deep: up to 30 meters. Because of the depth, in combination with the large surface, you are lost quickly or you need to get very lucky if you fish without a fishfinder. Read more >>
Time for our second – and last- part of pictures about our trip to Mexico. After fishing in Boca Paila we visited our friends in Cozumel: Nacho and his two sons Alberto and Nacho jr. Read more >>
*Little Mexican’s voice* “He guys!! You wanna see the ladies???” These were the first words we heard after clearing customs at the Cancun airport. Yes! We are back! Here’s part one of our trip to Mexico. Enjoy!
It’s weekend again and we feel the need to fish, so we started a small fire on social media and Whatsapp. Quickly our smoke signals are being picket up by Paulo of The Flyfishing Nation crew. He is in for some fishing with the Dutchies because his partner in crime, Stephan, is fishing Swedish waters for pike. Read more >>
Two weeks ago we did a weekend fishing on Lake Oostvoorne and tried some seabass fishing on “Europoort” near Rotterdam. Seabass fishing was very tough, but there were some nice surprises around the corner…
Last weekend De Ronde Bleek organized an event called “The Evening Rise”. It means fishing from 6PM till you sleep in your bellyboat, and rise and shine at sunrise to fish the morning rise. We were looking for some partners in crime, so we beamed the 0031flyfishing logo into the air. This signal was immediately picked up by the dudes of Flyfishing Nation. Ivan, Paulo and Stephan joined us for the session. Also some cool dudes from Belgium were game.
After fishing together on lake Oostvoorne, Paul and I were talking about Pike fishing. Paul owns a boat and lives near one of best waters for big pike in The Netherlands. Every year a lot of 120cm+ pike are caught, and even some 130cm+ ones. Big pike for sure! I got an invitation from Paul to fish these waters with him. Needless to say, I didn’t hesitate to go fishing with him! Read more >>
