We got this idea launched, to ask you guys some contribution for making this series complete, we’d like to get fishing stories from all over the world.
We’ve all heard about it over here, but only few went out to give it a try. The reservoir of Meerheuvel – and yes, for once we can call a Belgian reservoir a real lake for fly fishing – opened its doors for our Rodtrip team on a glacial day in January 2017.
Several people contacted our Rodtrip crew, to ask information about the Belgium fishing regulations, and how to procure fishing licences. Despite being a small country , one can easily get confused because of our complicated fishing regulations.
We all seem to get lost a little when we tackle a new river, dries ? nymphs ? streamers ? Which technique will make the fish eat our flies ?
At first we were a little surprised, but then very excited, when we received a message from Fishbone who invited Rodtrip for a two-days assessment with no less than Yannick Rivière, a French professional flyfishing guide.
Since his third place at the WFFC in 2013, Julien Lorquet has become one of the few known fly fishermen in Belgium. Now, two years later, he just joined Planet Fly Fishing as a guide.
In our small flyfishing community, some fishermen stand out of the crowd. One of them is Nicolas Germain.
The world’s fly fishing championship took place in Norway from the 10th to the 17th of August and was extremely difficult.
Bright and colourfull fly rods, a matter of beauty and performance, for those who don’t know him yet, we’re talking about this great custom rod builder, Eddy Scheinpflug.
