Floating flame

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.

Likkoe OVM weekend


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 try at Lake Oostvoorne


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”.

First barbs of 2014 have tasted our flies!

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.
