What’s going on? …….. I went out for fly fishing and found once more the pure beauty of fly fishing in spring.
Like in Autumn the days offer a immense spectrum of impressions on the water. The mornings are is freezing cold with a frosty landscape and during the day it warms up like in summer. The last two weekends were like crazy. -5 degrees in the morning and +20 degrees during the day. Still the water is super freezing cold. I tried once without a thick fleece body suit and this wasn’t very funny.
The fish are still little shy so early in the year but all of the prime water like the one I’m allowed to fish offer great possibilities and the chance to deceive the really big ones who are hungry after Winter. I can’t await that the mayfly time starts. There you have the realistic possibility to fool them also on the dry fly.
If you don’t mind to catch yourself through the entire age pyramid of trouts also the dry fly now already is very rewarding. In general this is my all year preferred method except for the bigger trouts in the marvelous turquoise deeper pools. Nothing can compete with a rising trout except maybe a bonefish tailing on your fly. But that’s another story that’s coming up soon :)
Long story short I had two very nice weekends with my new fishy friends and I really start enjoy trout fishing more and more. Just see my pictures and maybe it inspires you too. Go out fishing no matter what your wife is saying… Life is too short to not go fishing.
