The water temperature at the Swedish west coast has finally dropped the last days. Noticing this, around 18°C, I thought I should stop by one of my spots on the way home this afternoon. And on the first cast this strong searun brown hammered my sandeel fly. Fished for about 2 hours, resulting in around 20 fish in the net of varying size and a few lost, including a real monster, estimated around 70cm. I look forward to the remaining season! 🎣
I walked over a lot of cougar prints to catch this fish, so size does matter sometimes. Capturing the beauty and size of a fish accurately with a sports camera while standing alone in moving water still escapes me...but this was another new PB for me. Laid flat he was a lot more impressive than he is curled up in a deep net basket. Oh well #iswearitsthisbig
Wen't for some early morning fishing today. Fishing was slow and when the tide was as low it can be I was ready to go home. Just a few last casts I thought.
Out with the sandeel fly and home again.
When the fly was as close as it could get to me I wiggled it a little bit. And then, from my right, a flash of light and like a rocket this nice seatrout attacked the fly faster than I could react. After a short fight he was secured in my net.
53cm strong beauty, the golden in this one was brighter than I have ever seen before, even for a trout about to spawn.
You could think that it came from some clearwater river up in the north, but ney. 100% searun brown. A few pictures and then a gentle release. 🎣
