Everyone has their own favorite fly. Most of us even have a couple of favorite flies. Some flies simply catch a lot of fish in a lot of different circumstances. When it comes to nymphs my favorite fly is without a doubt the Simon Templer Nymph. When fishing for active trout in lakes and reservoirs I have a different favorite fly. It’s kind of a wet fly. My friends call it the Vincent’s 32. On our “home” trout water “De Ronde Bleek” this fly has accounted for several hundreds of big trout.

Once a year I go salmon fishing in Ireland, on the river Drowes. I haven’t had the luck to land one yet. But every time I have a lot of fun preparing for the trip, hoping this time I’ll catch one of those intriguing wild Atlantic Salmon. The same goes for the flies I tie in preparation of my next trip. With every fly I tie I’m hoping it’ll be the one that catches my fish!

We’re nearing the end of october, that means the winter is kickin’ in. Winter here in the Netherlands means one thing for us as flyfisherman: Pike! This time i’ll tie one of my favourite pike streamers.

This time I’ll tie a streamer made of EP-Fibers (Enrico Puglisi). It’s a wonderful material. Because of it’s hydrofobic nature the fibers won’t stick together when wet, but they stay axactly like they are tied and shaped.

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.
