Carp Beatle

Flyfishing for carp, it’s becoming more and more popular. We’ve written about it in the past. One of my favourite ways fishing for carp is with a dry fly. My favourite dryfly for carp is definately my Carp Beatle. It’s a killer!

DD Pheasant Tail Nymph

Pheasant Tail Nymphs are one of the most popular nymphs in our flyboxes. For this reason these flies count for large numbers of fish being caught. For some reason fish love the three materials that are commonly used in the different pheasant tail variants, these materials are: of course pheasant tail fibers, peacock tail feathers and copper! They have a very fish-attracting “thing” to them. That’s why I love this fly. It has all the ingredients that I believe guarantee to catch some fish.

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.
