I am a bit slow at the moment but I have a lot of things going on at work, tying seatrout flies and stuff. Well here is a little movie from our last trip and the first one of the year. Fishing buddy Gustav was the lucky one to hook the first bow of the year. A cold day with ice on the lakes but the bows was fighting good in the cold water and we managed to hook 3 each that followed us home for dinner.

Here is a simple and easy shrimp pattern that works and looks really nice.
It has a transparant look in the water and the seatrout loves it.
Oaklind Easy Shrimp
Hook: Partridge YK12ST size 10
Thread: Uni-Thread gray 6/0
Eyes: Shrimp eyes
Antennas: Brown fox tail
Body: EP-Shrimp Dub Brush
Throw the hook in the wise and wrap the shank as in the picture.
Tie in a bunch of fox tail and secure it well.
Tie in the eyes with a figure eight wind.
Tie in a pice of EP-Shrimp dub brush over the eyes and secure it well.
Wind the dub brush forward and fold the fibres backwards. Don´t wrap the brush to tight otherwise you loose the transparant look. Secure the brush with the thread and make a little head. Whip finish and secure with a drop of Loon knot sense. Use an old toothbrush and comb the fibres backwards.
The shrimp is done and will be perfect for seatrout, bonefish, tarpon or other saltwater fishes.

Well .. it was a long time since I posted something on the blog but here I am. I hope you got som fresh gear from santa last year. I got my hands on a new wading jacket (Guideline Kispiox) and a new pair of waders(Guideline Crosswater) , a real bargain.
I also have started to tie up some seatrout flies for the seatroutbox. Here are some candy:

Well .. as the family woke up very early this morning I decided to hit the creek. When I got there the bows had a feeding frenzy. They where everywhere but I had some unfinished business with a big fish that I hooked for a sec last week. I got to the spot where I last saw him and there he was, under all the leaves sucking hatching mosqitos from the surface. I made everything right and after a brutal fight a netted my biggest bow in the creek so far. A 44 cm/17.3 inch wild bow in perfect shape and condition. Did I mentioned that the cigarr tasted extra good that day?
Decided to take a ride to the creek on my lunchbreak, good choice I guess. A nice wild rainbow trout sipped my size 15 mosqito imitation. About 48 cm and great condition. The longest bow I have cought in the creek so far.

My great fishingbuddy Bergstrand and I hooked up at the creek this killer morning. The conditions was perfect and there was feeding bows everywhere.
After we had released his bow another bow started to feed at the same spot. I crawled into position and after a while I hooked a really nice female bow in a killer condition.
|Stunning morning at the creek|
Lovely colors at the moment, yellow, orange and green leaves and sunny wheater .... just perfect! We spotted some feeding fish on the most tricky places and I was very satisfied with my new line, a Guideline Presentation. I could make some perfect cast with that line. It loads with little line outside the rod and it was easy to make roll cast with. I can really recomend that line. Bergstrand didnt bring any rod so he borrowed mine to make a try on a bow that stod pretty bad. He is very skilled and a good caster so he soon hooked that nice bow. A perfect gem of the creek and one of the biggest we have catched there.

|Love these fishes|
It is kind of funny though. In the early season and under the summetime, we have only cought smaller bows, but now they are bigger than before. It seems like the bigger ones are getting in position to feed on mosqitos before the winter time. In the summer you dont see these fishes at all. I think they only feed at the evening/night and they are after bigger preys like frogs etc.
Well .. we had a great morning and I got some nice tips from Bergstrand. It is always nice to fish with a great buddy and I learn a lot from you guys, thanks!
