Last weekend De Ronde Bleek organized an event called “The Evening Rise”. It means fishing from 6PM till you sleep in your bellyboat, and rise and shine at sunrise to fish the morning rise. We were looking for some partners in crime, so we beamed the 0031flyfishing logo into the air. This signal was immediately picked up by the dudes of Flyfishing Nation. Ivan, Paulo and Stephan joined us for the session. Also some cool dudes from Belgium were game.
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.
Fooling big trout on a reservoir… It can be very difficult! This fly is specially designed to catch the biggest of them all!
