November Help the fish, sign for better fishing control
Dear reader of this
page, our national federation of fishermen in Denmark has
started a "sign under "list to the Danish politicians that we
want more fishing control in the waters around Denmark. This is
coursed by a lot of illegal net fishing next to the mouth of the
rivers and fishing along the coast, closer than 100 m. You can
help us by signing at the page of this link
with two stars has to be filled out, name/street/town and post
number. If you have any comments,
please fill in at the box "eventuel kommentar" as are comments,
feel free to write in English. At last you press the button "jeg
skriver under" as mean I'm signing.
Thank you for
September. Another big salmon from Varde aa.
Yesterday, there was
caught a salmon at 14 kg by a local fisherman.
September. EU gives 10 million $ to restore river Varde aa.
105 million danish
kroner or about 17,5 million $ will be used the next four years
to restore the river Varde aa. this means that the original
salmon is here for good. The fish will be able to spawn in 90 km
water. No obstacles at all only highway to the spawning spots.
Thank you Mr. Stavos Dimas from EU.
September. News for fly tiers and fly fishermen.
We are in a quiet
period right now. Water is low and clear and there's long
way between the fish right now. They are there, there's lot of
them, but they have seen so many spinners, lures and flies so
that they don't want anything. We should have some rain soon and
then there will be lots of fish...
I have made some
new tube flies. These are deep divers from Iceland and
originally made with long sheep hair and horse belly hair.
You'll find them

News for fly tiers.
I have joined a Fly
swap at the Virtual Fly Box.
For this I
have made some tubeflies as you can see by clicking at the
picture just below.

Status on southwest fishing
For the last time,
we have had some rain. There has been caught some fish in the
different rivers. The small Sneum aa, has produces a lot of
small salmon (grilse) mainly for the spinning-fishermen, but
also a few fish for the fly fishermen. In Kongeaaen, where I do
lot of fishing it has been hard times, some seatrouts has been
caught, but to few. The water level is at the moment almost
perfect and the rain we had yesterday should bring some new fish
up in the river, when I were last night, I had to takes but no
fish on shore.
trout was 75 cm and 4,4 kg
the river Varde aa, one of my friends lost a salmon after 20
minutes, they saw the fish, and it was a salmon at 18-20 kg.
120+cm long and about 45-55 cm high, a monster, but it's still
river Skjern aa, the fishing is good at the moment, the fish
starts to be coloured, but still there's nice salmon and
seatrouts to be caught.
Tuesday 9. august.
Lots of fish in the rivers.
Since I last make an
update on this page, a lot of fish has been caught. We have a
lot of water in the rivers, and there's a lot of small grilse
and seatrouts coming up from the sea. Most of the grilse are
fish at 62-70 cm but also bigger fish has been caught. There has
been caught some sea trout's about 6 kg.
Friday 29. July.
More rain than in 100 years.
The water has been
good for the rivers. In river Sneum aa the fishing has been
"exploded" the last week. Five salmon up to 5 kg and about ten
seatrouts has been caught. Unfortunally non of them on a fly.
Fishing in river Skjern aa is also very good at the moment, but
the water is very dirty. Use flies containing orange in the
daytime and black flies in the evening.
Today it has
rained more than in one hundred years. Traffic was jammed, roads
was flooded, but I'm, sure that the fishing will be very good
for the next couple of days
Saturday 23. July.
Water in the rivers.
The last week has
been good for the rivers, we have had a lot of rain, as mean
that the rivers has raised again. Lots of clear cool water,
This mean that
the fishing in river Varde aa for seatrouts has begun. Most of
the fish is small summer fish at 2-3 kg, but anyway, very funny
on a fly rod. But be careful, one can be lucky to catch a sea
trout at 10 kg+. In northern Jutland, in river Karup aa, there
has been caught a sea trout at 11,4 kg and lot of fish at about
5-6 kg. River Skjern aa, does also fish and up there its both
sea trout's and salmon as are to be caught. In our corner of the
country is it mainly river Sneum aa as have been given fish the
last few days, but unfortunally only a few. River Kongeaaen is a
disaster this year, but maybe later in the season.
You can find lots
of mullets in the harbour of Esbjerg, as well as in the bay of
Ho and in the rest of the wading sea. so dear fellow fisherman,
welcome to our country, come and try the fishing, you may be
lucky to find a friend you didn't know you had or even a nice
silverfish directly from the sea.
Friday 1. July.
Summertime in DK.
In this corner of
Jutland is it warm and dry. We haven't had rain for very long
time. The water level in the rivers and streams are low but
fishable. One can find seatrouts as well as salmon in our
rivers, and in the smaller ones, there's a good change for a
grayling or a big brown trout. They have to be fished in the
evening. Especially the big brown trout's are to be fished with
a muddler or a streamer. Fishing on the beech is now late night
and very early morning and with very small flies. It's also time
for mullets, especially on the west coast, but in a short time
(with this heat) you can find them all over. In Esbjerg, you can
fish them at the fishing harbour and south of the Power plant,
and in Måde (Maade), next to the old brickyard. you just have to
remember that the wind direction shall be from shore and not
into the shore.
Friday 10. June.
The seatrouts has entered the rivers.
In the start of
this week, the seatrouts entered the river. Tuesday, the first
fish at 6 kg was caught, later the same evening, I lost a nice
fish. One can find seatrouts in most of the rivers now, so
welcome summer we have missed you...

the salmon is running up in the rivers. The last week has given
about 20 salmon. the biggest, 13,2 kg and a lot of heavy fish
also from river Kongeaaen and R. Sneum aa.

The season has just started. The
first day in Varde aa was very good. 10 salmon was caught, the
largest 9 kg. A lot of small seatrouts was caught as well. In
the other rivers, there was caught seatrouts in various sizes +
a few salmons.
In the Danish part, you will find
a lot of different flies, made in step-by-step pictures. The
text is in Danish, but the pictures talk for themselves, so
please have a look. You'll find flies for beginners as well as
flies for trained tiers.
