Seenplatte Fly fishing

The Mecklenburg Lake Plateau is a well-known place for coarse anglers and we could not find any information about fly fishing. Equipped with belly boat and fly rod we explored the area.

Monster barbel on a fly

2021, the world is still in lockdown, travelling is a far memory. For the addicted to big and strong fish a real curse. So we have to find the challenge close to home. Where and how?

Nera Fly fishing

The river Nera runs in Umbria, in the middle of Italy. This region is one of the most charming in the country. With gorgeous lanscapes,perched on hills middle-age villages and beatiful rivers.

Maldives Fly fishing

The Maldives in the Indian Ocean, a tourist paradise of white sand and turquoise water. Beside the post-card beaches and snorkeling, the flats offer good chances to fly anglers and fantastic opportunities to fly fish for giant trevally.


Large stonefly nymph : Perla marginata

Summer nymph

Despite the name this nymph will cath in spring and fall too. A fly for the alpine stream, white waters or faster currents. In the smaller size it works also well in slower currents. Not everyone may know that this nymph.. 

Tying a Mayfly nymph

The use of mayfly nymph in the un-weighted version is at times under-estimated. During the hatch, the insect that swims to emerge, squirmig and wiggling in the surface film, is often more attractive to the fish than the winged ones.

Crane fly

Crane flies are not typical water insects, but they leave in proximity of the streams and when the wind can send them tumbling into the water.

Barbel wire

This fly has been a constant performer for barbel on my local river. I have not tested yet on trout, but I can imagine it might work well too on alpine streams.

Torrent queen

The torrent queen is designed to imitate the Epeorus nymph and it is a top search pattern overall for white waters and fast currents.

Killer bug

The mytical pattern of Frank Sawyer is an all round great nymph. Here a re-mix with two wool sorts and a tweak to reduce snags.

Gackiña emerger

The Gackiña is tied to work in the 'Limbo' between the submerged water column and the emerged world.
