There are several short fishing trips without comments in 2011. Now I have the time to show up all this trips.
july 1st – 3th: Three sunny but cold days at the hashery fish stocked mountains lakes Melchsee-Frutt. There are three lakes for fishing – Blauseeli only for fly fishing and the Melchsee and the Tannensee for every fishing style. We are a small group of fishermens and have had a good time. Relaxing time…
We haven’t caught a lot of fish but we have had a good time.
july the 22th: A short trip to a small and wild mountain river. It was a little bit dangerous trip with deep hanging and dark storm clouds in the valley.
The river runs with and a little bit muddy and swollen water.
The possibility of thunder, lightning and heavy water from above and plenty water in the river – these are not the best feeling conditions. But the brook trout were still hungry. Nymphing in a small mountain river can be very exciting…
Nymphing? Yes, this is my favorite pattern: Brown nymph
August the first: This is my home river – only a five minutes hike far from my home. Ok – today I go a little bit downstream by car. There are other people on the road – in the air – early in the morning:
It was a very sunny day with clear water. I was going to the old bridge ruins with the old bridge tax house
and fishing downstream. It was a beautiful morning!
Intensive summer colors everywhere – full flowering poppy:
August the first: At the evening I was going to another river to fish with the dry fly. But – ouch – there is in high water! This river is regulated by a dam and – flooded…
The water level goes down a little bit but it was too high. It’s like swollen water after a rainstorm – the fish don’t like this water level and current…
Not only the fishs doesn’t hit my fly – my cam won’t work well too. I don’t know what she has. This is tunneling photography without using any special effects:
Last year I was several days fishing on lake Neuenburg. I have a small trolling boat in the harbor of Portalban. We were out for fishing to Whitefish, perch and pike and was more or less successfull.
