The first sunny days in spring were happening, so we had to go out and look for some new carp waters. The temperature was rising, so the carp would be starting to feed. We were right! The carp weren’t realy active, but somehow we managed to find them. It’s still a little early, but we will be chasing them a lot more next couple of weeks. Read more >>

Wintertime 2

<- Leave a comment

A couple more pictures of our wintertime fishing here in The Netherlands. A few nice fish were caught. Philip caught 2 pike at the same place, both with the same length. We thought they were the same, but they weren’t. They have different markings. Also, Boy caught a nice Pike-Perch, wich ate her belly full for the upcoming winterperiod. Furthermore we caught several nice pike. Not really big ones, but that doesn’t matter. Another place we like to fish is “De Ronde Bleek“. Beautiful good sized rainbows and brownies inhabit the lake.

It’s wintertime in The Netherlands. Almost all water is frozen. But there still remain a couple of places where we can fish. We went fishing yesterday and froze our asses off!!! Sadly with no result, but luckily we had the chance to shoot a couple of nice pictures.

Got teeth?

We love fishing for pike. Pike are agressive, they have some nasty teeth, and they only have one thing on their mind when they see your “fly”: “must… destroy… that… fly!!!”

Suck my Mexican shrimp!


“Look there, 60 feet, 11 o’clock! Nervous water! Wait… Wait… Cast now!! Wait… Wait… Strip, strip!! Set the hook!!! *BANG* Fish on!” These are the words you will be dreaming about after a full day of fishing in Mexico.

Flyfishing in Slovenia


Just imagine your perfect trout stream. What will it be like? Maybe beautiful and clear water? Maybe white sandy bottoms? With some skatered rocks in there? Some nice variation in river structure? Some remote spots where you won’t find anyone else? A lot of insect life? Beautiful surroundings? And to top it all off, some big, beautifull, but difficult to catch fish? Well, look no further and read on!

First barbs of 2014 have tasted our flies!

First 2014 barbel!

Sometimes there’s the odd by-catch… This one is a Gibel Carp or sometimes called Prussian Carp. Funny fish…

First spring days

Finally, some nice spring days here in the Netherlands. For us it meant looking for bows on Lake Oostvoorne. Very difficult day. The wind even made it a bit chilly. Luckily we found some fish after all.
