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…
A quick tie this time. This pattern is very effective where fish are slamming very small baitfish/fry. Very often predatory fish swim trough schools of fry to numb them. The result is some of the fly floating to the surface. After that the fish can take the fry from the surface without worrying about them swimming away.
Old men with busy agenda’s. That’s what we’ve become. That means if we want to go fishing on Lake Oostvoorne (OVM), we have to plan it way ahead. So we planned our weekend and booked a cabin. Only weather conditions made us worry a little bit.
A new fly, every Thursday from now on. Let’s kick this thing off with a killer pattern! Read more >>
At the fly fair in Dronten (the Netherlands) we ran into the dudes from dyckers.com. We had some nice adventures together in the past (like Pike fishing in the “polders” of Utrecht). After a while we found out they had plans for a Lake Oostvoorne trip so we joined up with them.
From “ The Rise flyfishing film festival” in Amsterdam straight to Lake Oostvoorne where we spend the night in a Cabin near the lake so we could get out early. The fishing was tough, misty all day and the water was freezing cold. The fish were hard to find on the shallow waters of the lake. Nearly no sign of fish but Philip was the saviour off the day with a nice healthy Bow! Click the read more for some pictures and a movie.
A big lake (320 hectares brackish water) near the coast of the Netherlands that holds some serieus trout. It’s always a challenge going there because like the locals say “the good old times are over”.
