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.
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?
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
The torrent queen is designed to imitate the Epeorus nymph and it is a top search pattern overall for white waters and fast currents.
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.
The Gackiña is tied to work in the 'Limbo' between the submerged water column and the emerged world.
Sculpin thrive in a wide spectrum of waters, from mountain stream to potamon. For this pattern I employ spoons single hooks
Madness during a hatch of the real mayfly. When Ephemera danica hatches even a 10 Kg trout may rise
Ammarnäs in Sweden, the river Vindel is world-famous for the giant lake trout that run into it.
