The summer has been really great, as well for the weather as for the fishing.
But today we have a rainy day, so that's a good day for some updates and nice pictures of the past weeks !
In Juli I went out with Tim and two friends for some river fishing after the zanders. We found some really good spots and caught a lot of nice ones on vertical jigging. Beautiful fish came up, as you can see on the pictures below .
Of course with these temperatures it is very important to release the fish very quickly, so don't keep them up to long. A quick picture, and then safe and healthy back into the waters. And healthy they were for sure !
The beautiful coast is just about one hour driving from here, and you can have good fishing there on sea trout, mackerels and other salt water species.
It's a great experience, and some also taste very well ! :-)
He drove here with a few kayaks, and we went out together with Pascal and Martijn. For us the fishing from a kayak was a whole new but great experience. It's a beautiful way of fishing, you have almost direct contact with the water, wich makes drilling a big fish very exciting. And also the silence around you is something special to enjoy.
We enjoyed it very much, and also learned a lot. Thanks Marco !
But also without al the advanced equipment it's pretty easy at the moment to catch them from shore, with some basic rods and lures you can have big perch, and more important, big fun. For sure ! :-)
As this blog shows, we have had great weather and fantastic summer fishing here in Dalsland ! The weather forecast is again very good for next week, lot's of sun, wich is of course nice for the last summer guests.
But the season is changing slowly into autumn now. Night temperatures go down quickly already. And that means that water temperatures also drop down in the next weeks, and soon the big fish will start their feeding for the winter time.
And that's what we like of course, for the fisherman who booked here for autumn . Wish them already a great time and spectaculair fishing !
Of course we want to thank all the guests that booked our accomodations and services during this lovely Swedish summer . We hope you all enjoyed your staying here, and of course we hope to see you back again. Thanks !
