But now we have a few days off before new guests arrive this weekend. So it's time to update my blog, and i hope you enjoy reading !
We had Marc and Eric here, specialists in Zander- and pike fishing, but their goal for Sweden was to catch pike here only by fly-fishing . And it turned out to surprising fishing ! Later on in this blog more about it.
We also welcomed a group of very close friends of ours, i've fished a lot with them in Holland and in Sweden, and now they were here in Dalsland !
Because the weather was very nice the last weeks we started of with a barbecue and a few drinks here to welcome them in Sweden !
The fish was hard to find but of course everybody managed to catch a few decent pikes, and among them a few nice ones above 1 M.
But a fair count showed that the Swedish guys caught 2 more fish at the end of the day, and also the biggest one.
So congratulations, the trophee here stays in Sweden untill the next battle ! :-)
During their trips they caught hundreds of pikes, medium sized but also real big ones, with tops of 103, 105, 109, 113 and 114 cm !
A few pictures and a short movie below :
Marc and Erik.
Because of the long winter it was sometimes hard to catch them this way, but they hang in there and got what they came for, the pike gave them good sport on the fly rods and the strikes are spectaculair .
But i also adviced them to go out to a lake here wich is know for good trout fishing. So they went up there for a few days, and had so much fun, some days they caught over 13 good sized rainbow trouts !
It was a pleasure for us to have you as our guests, and of course we hope to see you back again here at Sportfishing Dalsland !
