For some years now, our pics about pike fishing in the polders were making our French friends from Le Mouching crazy. So last November Jeremy, Romain & Johan took them on a pike journey.Read more “Teaser flyfishing film for pike in the Dutch polders with Rodtrip & Le Mouching.”
Last week I had a day off, and found myself with Nicolas in a new region around Gouda.
The day started quite cold at 3°C, with easter wind, not really what I wished for, but a day fishing is always a good one spent.Read more “Always insist on a spot when you catch a first pike !”
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.
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.
In May 2016, we went back in Ireland for the second time.
We spent a week at Castlehamilton and fished most of the time small lakes with our float tubes.
