As you may have noticed over the last couple of years, we have a special bond with sightfishing the nymph in France, targetting difficult fish at the end of the season. In these conditions, fishing requires lots of precision and discretion if you want to have a chance to catch some trout. Read more “Gold Rush Zebra Trout in France! We’re back!”
After arriving at Castlehamilton late in the evening, it was too late to inflate and arrange our new keeper float tubes.
PIKE ON THE SURFACE !
Whenever a planned trip is getting closer, I become obsessed for tying lots of flies. I’m so thrilled that I tie so many types of flies, that some of them will not even end up at my leader.
The fourth day of our stay, is eternalised in my mind. We decided to fish a bigger lake today, on which we did quite well last year.
Last evening our French friends had some success in this lake, fishing lures from the shore, with a 90+cm mixed in. We decided to give it a try with our flies.
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.
Wether one can call 4 years a tradition or not, targeting Dutch pike at the Polders has become a yearly thing for us at Rodtrip.
Like every year in March, trout fishing starts. We are always very excited to go back to the river and to catch our first fish on the fly.
