Carp on the fly


Actually, I just wan­ted to test some new strea­mer and lea­der com­bi­na­ti­ons for the upco­m­ing pre­da­tor sea­son at the River Main, but it became a suc­cess­ful fis­hing day with great fish and my big­gest carp on a fly rod. The carp took a nice orange wet fly, the pike and the roach nai­led a small 4cm long Wooly Bug­ger.

These losses had to be compensated this year by stocking again. Read more about it on Arge Sinntal. […]

Fly fishing for pike at the Kinzig Lake


On Thurs­day it was finally time to fish at the Kin­zig Lake in the Kin­zig Val­ley. Accor­ding to great fis­hing reports I’ve read I star­ted early in the morning to give me a chance to secure the early rising pikes at the lake. The lake is pretty fly-fishing-friendly, since all the hot spots such as reeds and cab­bage fields in shal­low water are acces­si­ble by waders. Howe­ver, the con­di­ti­ons were not the best: the blue-green algae bloom was in full swing, the water was very warm (23° C) and the other­wise fre­quently occur­ring small fish were not seen any­where. So […]

Rainbow trout on the fly at the Main River


The Main River is full of sur­pri­ses, and this 55cm rain­bow trout I caught on a nymph at an estuary of a small creek is beside the gol­den ide my per­so­nal favorite.
