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!

Some people like it, some people don’t. Some people do it because they’ll probably catch more fish in certain situations, some people don’t do it because it takes away the fun in their flyfishing. I’m talking about fishing with HEAVY nymphs.

The Simon Templer Nymph, it’s without a doubt my favourite nymph! It was developed by Mr. Simon Branse for fishing the Rur in Blens. It’s an easy tie, and it catches a lot of fish all over the world!

Flyfishing for Trout, Grayling and Char in Mittersill Austria


We decide to go fishing in Austria and booked a room in Hotel Bräurup in Mittersill to enjoy a romantic “couple weekend” which means fishing all day long in stinky waders. Mauro has been there a few times in the past and for Daniela it’s the first time. The first weekend of October at f*ck** 5 o’clock in the morning we started our journey in Zürich and drove to Mittersill.

Time for a new fly. I’ve tied a somewhat strange fly. It’s the Chernobyl Ant. This is a very succesful “dry fly”, or better, terrestrial. The main material is foam, so it’s a good floater!

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.

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.
