It's time to get into the mood of fishing again. For that, the Rise Fly Fishing Film Festival is hosted in most of the big cities in Germany, as well as in Austria, Switzerland and other places around the world.
Two days ago I managed to sneak out and do some pikefishing - simply needed a short break from all the exam stress. I was afraid that the river could be frozen, but it turned out to be perfectly fishable. I didn't catch a single fish, but had some real quality time outdoors.
2016 has been an incredible year for all of us. We experienced some good fishing, shared one or two adventures and met great people. But let's hear what some of our members think about their experiences and future plans:
Those of you, who are fishing for the queen of fish namely the alpine lake trout, know what it takes to catch one. With the trout season closed in Bavaria, flyfishing fanatics are in search of somewhere to escape...
When it comes right down to the question which kind of fishing I liked the most during our trip to Norway, I will answer one thing without hesitation: the salt. Quite a lot of fishing fanatics see the Norwegian coast as some kind of fishing Mekka. Every year thousands of fishermen enjoy the great scenery whilst pulling up big cod, coalfish or halibut from the deep towards their boat, using heavy spin- and baitfishing gear.
My first years of fishing I spend on little ponds with a normal fishing rod, catching stocked trouts and carps. Some years later I read one of the "flyfishing for beginners" articles in a normal fishing magazine. I was directly interested in this "unknown" fishing technique and started watching videos about it.
