Mitt i i ordningställandet inför "Master Class" veckan i kharlovka som börjar på lördag dimper det ner ett häftigt mail i mailboxen. Skånske pågen (och SSC medlemmen) Anders Eklöv har slagit till i danska Skjernå.

Kolla länken - snygg fisk!

Grattis Anders - den var du värd!

Skjern å
2011-05-31  05:29

Startade dagens fiske i några fina svängar, hård vind snett nerifrån. Äntligen fick jag chansen att prova fiske efter den berömda Skjern å laxen, känd för att bli riktigt stor, danskt rekord 26,5 kg (1954).

Startade med en Phatakorva, vad annars.. I första svingen kände jag en dragning, den hungriga laxnerven var tänd och kasten löpte fint.

Efter lunch fiskade vi uppströms Borriskrog bro, just på den sträcka där den danska rekordlaxen fångades. Började med en pilsner i gräset med min danske vän Gerhard, efter en stund kom laxnerven i dallring, en känsla om hugg.

Jag reste mig upp, tog spö och sade till Gerhard nu ska jag ta en lax... Efter några få kast, där det kändes som giftigast, sög det i rejält. Jag hade bytt till en Willie Gun Puzzy, en av Frödins makalösa flugor till att fånga fisk.

Laxen rusade långt, allt för långt då flera stor alar hindrade mig att följa efter. Laxen kom till slut in och första titten gav besked, det var en stor lax långt över metern. Leif Persson, min fiskebroder, landade fisken med ett rejält tag under gällocket... 121 cm och 16 kg, inte dåligt för den första danska laxen.

butiksbindning i Skellefteå
2011-05-23  20:22

idag var det full rulle i butiken hos Tommy. Bindning helka dagen och fick ihop en del farliga flies! Ganska bra intresse för det mesta - men kanske var det Pahtakorva som stod högst i kurs - imorgon hemåt och dags för att börja packa för Ryssland. Allt ser bra ut där - ganska tidig vår med bra värme!
på Lördag drar först gänget!

Skellefteå - Jippo med Cykel & Fiske
2011-05-22  19:53

Idag var det årets sedvanliga jippo i Skellefteå- strålande sol och kanonväder gjorde att det tyvärr var färre som hittade ut till ön och älven. Det var dock bra ett par hundra man på plats som kastade älven randig. Reactionserien och de nya 3D linorna med sjunk 2 spets var nog det av Guidelines sortiment som tog störst uppmärksamhet!

i morgon är det dags för demo hos Tommy i butiken - då blir det flugbindning med SSS, Fits och massor av tips och trix!





Gäddtävlingen - Umeå Pike Open
2011-05-22  19:17

Andra dagen i Umeå. Mats Johansson "Guideline Power team member" och jag skulle visa Guideline utrustning, skarva linor och binda flugor i sammanband med den årliga gäddtävlingen. hmmm - Frödin på gäddtävling hörde jag det viskas... och visst jag kände mig lite missanpassad - inte gillar jag att det tävlas i fiske och gäddor är väl inte min favofisk heller - även om en schysst popper gädda kan vara nog så trevligt.

Dagens behållning blev istället kvällens laxfisketimmar vid Byske. "slakteriets" fantastiskt spännande nacke, bra laxljug och flera av älvens riktiga profiler gav en skön mix och mersmak!

Inga nya laxar än ..men de kan bara vara timmar borta nu...

vackert och spännande - Byske!



Blixt i Umeå!
2011-05-22  18:47

Strålande väder och glada norrlänningar mötte upp. Flera av leverantörerna var på plats och dagen avlöpte smidigt och fint. Vi var några flugbindare som broderligt delade tältet utanför butiken.

Mitt på dagen blev det taxifärd till SVT s radiohus och en halvtimmes medverkan i programmet "Äntligen Fredag" ett schysst samtal om laxar, flugor och min brokiga bana... Jag fick dock in ett par inlägg om galenskapen i svensk laxpolitik, fredningsområden fulla av nät och fällor och den enorma potential som bara sakta men säkert förstörs!


hmmm kan mössan gömma en annan frisyr än min kanske...

Lindström i Zonker tagen

Lite bra rysslandsflugopr och " Den vanlige" i turbospecialutförande blev dagen skörd.

Umeå!
2011-05-19  19:17

Då var man på plats i Umeå! Imorgon blir det demo och flugbindning hos Blixtsport från ca kl 11.00. Jag har med mina privata Reactionprylar för den som är sugen att prova.

Skönt att vara i Västerbotten under fiskesäsong! Nu ska de första laxarna tas vilken dag som helst....kanske blir det i Byske på Lördag - då är jag på plats!

The Atlantic Salmon’s Dangerous World.
2011-05-13  09:37

The Atlantic Salmon’s Dangerous World.

NASF’s latest depiction of the world of the Atlantic salmon shows the safe areas for salmon where the fish are protected by agreements with commercial fishermen. Unfortunately, there are also red spots on the map. These show the areas where mixed-stock fisheries continue to endanger wild salmon.

There is also a shaded area. This indicates the large segment of the ocean where industrial fishing takes place. These fisheries, operating principally in the North Sea and the NE Atlantic, harvest very large quantities of sand eels and capelin to be made into feed for fish farms and livestock. They also sometimes target mackerel and herring. Many fear these vessels remove much of the baby sand eel and capelin stocks on which juvenile salmon depend and that the fishery also results in a by-catch of adult and juvenile salmon.

Meanwhile, the salmon farming industry continues to spread its disease and sea lice to wild salmon stocks. Large-scale escapes of domesticated farm salmon bred for a life in captivity continue to threaten the genetic makeup of wild stocks that have evolved to make migrations that may take them thousands of miles.

In many regions of Norway, the west coast of Scotland and in Ireland and Canada the damage inflicted by the negative effects of salmon farms has ruined many wild salmon rivers. A destructive combination of commercial over-fishing and a huge fish farming industry riding roughshod over conservation efforts have made Norway the North Atlantic’s most dangerous place for wild salmon.

Both these industries enjoy the strong backing of the Norwegian government and sadly the Norwegians are able to spread the damaging effects of their fish farms around the globe. In Scotland, Norwegian operators use attractive ‘Scottish’ names to promote and market their products — but consumers should not be fooled. The juvenile stock is imported from Norway, there is a high number of foreign staff, the ownership of the farms is Norwegian and their financial operations depend on Norwegian and Ukrainian banks.

The North Atlantic Salmon Fund, NASF, is an international coalition of voluntary private sector conservation groups who have come together to restore stocks of wild Atlantic salmon to their historic abundance. – nasf@vortex.is – www.nasfworldwide.com


Aktivitetsbidrag Sportfiskarna

Sportfiskarna

Sportfiskarna delar ut 300 000 kr till lokal verksamhet
Sportfiskarna - 2011-05-12 09:04
Aktivitetsbidraget 2011 på totalt 300 000 kr har nu fördelats till föreningar och distrikt anslutna till Sportfiskarna. Bidraget skall skapa mer lokal verksamhet för bland annat ungdomar och kvinnor.

Aktivitetsbidraget har delats ut av Sportfiskarna sedan 2008 och består i nuläget av en pott på 300 000 kr som föreningar och distrikt kan söka medel ur för verksamhet inom de prioriterade områdena ungdom, kvinnors fiske och integration. Principen är först till kvarn och varje förening kunde söka för upp till två aktiviteter. Övervägande del av de 72 ansökningarna var för ungdomsaktiviteter och totalt inkom ansökningar motsvarande 375 000 kr.
– Det här är till stor hjälp för oss i vår verksamhet. Vi tar ut väldigt mycket ungdomar från Rosengård på bland annat båtfiske i Öresund och behöver allt ekonomiskt stöd vi kan få, säger Milutin Petrovic, från fiskeklubben Vocifer i Malmö som beviljats 6000 kronor till två fiskedagar i Öresund.
Totalt beviljades 65 aktiviteter bidrag i storleken 3 000 eller 6 000 kr beroende på aktiviteternas omfattning och behov. Henrik Helde, föreningskonsulent hos Sportfiskarna, anser att bidraget årligen generar väldigt mycket bra lokal verksamhet bland anslutna klubbar.
– I kombination med föreningarnas ideella insatser uppnår vi väldigt mycket aktivitet för pengarna.

The Park Trophy
2011-05-05  06:11

The Park Trophy, for the biggest salmon caught on the fly on the River Dee, which is verified and returned to the river, was launched autumn 2009. The first winning recipient was Jim Coates, who had landed a 32 lb salmon from Park Estates in August 2009, which delighted Park Estates proprietor John Foster. The biggest verified salmon caught on the River Dee during 2010, was landed by visiting angler Jesper Holm Nielsen from Denmark at Lower Dess. The fish, which measured 45 inches and was a male fish, was estimated to be around 32 lbs by two Ghillies Eoin Smith and Colin Simpson, arguably the most experienced Ghillies on the River Dee.

River Dee rapport 2 maj
2011-05-05  06:04

Recent Catches

Another excellent weeks fishing for visiting anglers to the River Dee with FishDee beats reporting 242 for the week up to this point; there may be later catches still to be added. Ballogie reported 29 salmon for the week, which was an excellent return, Dinnet and Deecastle reported 27 salmon, with Monaltrie and Lower Invercauld reporting 25 salmon as did Park beats. Given the difficult conditions with low water levels and very bright skies, this is a remarkable achievement from anglers and River Dee Ghillies. The reports filtering through are plenty of fish about, however many will not take the fly well and many hook-ups are tentative at times with fish being lost early into the fight. There are fish distributed well throughout the catchment now and anglers should be covering fish wherever they are fishing. I should also mention that experienced anglers are doing well with anglers used to fishing these difficult conditions, fishing with the right tackle and delicate presentation making the bulk of catches.

I am grateful to Sean Stanton, Ballogie Estates Head Ghillie who reported ’Hi Ken Just a quick note to tell you about the great catches last week, both Ballogie and Carlogie broke 50 fish for the month with Ballogie finishing on 64. Peter Terndrup’s party at Ballogie had 29 salmon for their week, up to 16lb with peter himself landing 18 salmon, this was a huge achievement considering the average catch for the month as a whole is just over 30 fish. Mike Wrightson’s party at Carlogie had 12 and celebrated breaking 50 for the month, Mike was delighted to have the honour of catching the 50th fish, pretty good for a party whose average age was 82 years old, and long may they continue to catch fish.’ Peter Terndrup commented to me via Facebook ’It was amazing fishing. We had 29 salmon in total for the party despite the low water conditions. The pools were full of fish and they liked our small tubes.’ I was delighted to meet Mike and his friends for lunch at Carlogie during the week and they were having a very enjoyable time-thanks for the kind invitation.

I was also delighted to receive an in depth report from regular Dee angler and PGA golf professional Sam Jarman who reported ’Hi Ken, Hope all good with you. Just a quick run through of our time with Archie Hay at Crathie last week. It was great to find him back on form after his illness last year. It makes such a difference when conditions are tricky to have someone as knowledgeable and enthusiastic to offer advice and encouragement. As you know the weather wasn’t helpful, with temperatures as low as minus 5 overnight and clear blue skies during the day. The river level fell away towards the end of the week and fishing early and late was the order of the day. Despite this we managed a few fish, highlight of the week being a first salmon for Pete Swinfen, a superb 17lb hen from McLaren on Tuesday morning after a really good scrap. Pete commented that there was no way he would have landed it without Archie being there to advise and assist and eventually net it. The fish was safely returned.

The rest of the party had some good sport, I had 4 fish, with 2 in 3 casts from Garland on Tuesday, Phil Roberts managed his first Dee salmon from Queens on Saturday morning, and John Fyfe was unlucky to only land one fish, losing half a dozen more. This was to be a common occurrence with everyone having at least one long range release story to tell. We were seeing salmon in nearly every pool, but takes were tentative and even fish which seemed well hooked were finding ways of getting off. First time salmon fisher Chris McKirgan had an exciting but frustrating day on Monday, hooking three fish and playing them all for a few minutes, but unfortunately not managing to get one to the net. I’m pretty sure he will be back.All the fish came to small flies, Stoats Tails, Silver Shrimps and Crathies being the popular choices. I had a lot of fun raising a number of fish to a small hitched Collie Dog, such an exciting way of fishing in these conditions. Another very enjoyable week on Deeside. After the cold temperatures and high water of the last two years it was very pleasant to be fishing in shirt sleeves and to see so many fish in the pools. Fingers crossed for some rain in the next few days to keep them moving through. All the best for the rest of the season, speak to you soon, Sam’ I am also very grateful to Ian Murray for his report from Monaltrie and Lower Invercauld this morning who advised ’It was a good week for our beats with Michael Cook having his first ever salmon after a number of years trying, and Charlie Barton also catching his first salmon. We were using small flies and micro tubes and we are still catching sea liced fish. We are fortunate that our beats fish in all water heights.’ Dave Walker kindly wrote and commented ’Just a short note, I had the good fortune to fish Lower Woodend last Thursday 21st. I was shown round the beat the evening before by Rory Cooper, the setting beautiful and so quiet. Arrived with expectation at 8.00 am the next morning and started fishing around 9.15. Fifth cast of the day delivered an 11lber on a lightly dressed stoat’s tail as advised by Rory. All the better that three guys at the opposite hut witnessed it. As you know, I am relatively new to salmon fishing and this represents the biggest fish I have caught to date. I will be back at Lower Woodend, availability permitting.’ Congratulations to David for his success at the delightful Lower Woodend.

If you have been fortunate enough to land a prized Springer this week then please send me an image of the fish being returned to the River for the FishDee website. You may also want a memento from your trip to Deeside and toast your success. I can recommend the new Dalmore Dee Dram which is on sale at George Strachan’s shop in Aboyne and a number of the hotels in the valley; it is now available in London at Friarwood Fine Wine, 26 New Kings Road, London, and Tel 020 7736 2628. It can be purchased online at this link A significant contribution from each bottle sold will go to the River Dee Trust to help fund obstacle removal and other important salmon conservation work programmes currently underway. Please write to me, Ken Reid, with any news or reports of success to ken@riverdee.org and tight lines to all. Copyright FishDee Ltd May 2011.
Prospects
I remarked last week that it could be tricky to advise how the prospects would be given the weather forecast and low river levels. We had the best weeks fishing for the season so perhaps I should tempt fate and suggest that this week’s conditions make predicting prospects difficult. Advice received from Ghillies is always worth heeding and I am grateful to the Ghillies for their feedback. The current high pressure and prevailing conditions look like continuing for the next week albeit there are some weather forecasters providing a glimmer of hope for some much needed rainfall later this week. The local website www.ballogieweather.com comments that it has been probably the driest April on record. I would expect to see a continuation of warm bright days and cold nights, with potential for frosts and coastal haar to progress upriver. This will burn off in the mornings, and as the air warms up it will draw cool easterly breezes from the sea upriver. Many anglers will then forsake angling during the bright afternoons and return to fish hard during the evenings into the night. The maritime forecast is indicating that tides will rise daily until Tuesday and stabilise and then drop back on Saturday. This could encourage some new fish to come forward. Will it rain to any great extent on Friday? I will watch the skies with interest and fingers crossed we will hopefully receive much needed rainfall in the valley.

I always advise anglers should consult their ghillies and heed their wise advice and I would urge the same this week. Anglers should bring light and strong tackle to the river to ensure that they can use the lightest fly lines they have, preferably sea trout lines of 7/8 weight with small double handed rods, or single handed rods and leaders around 10 lbs breaking strain. The River Dee Ghillies have been studying the runs of fish and locations where fish are stopping in their beats so are best placed to provide you with invaluable information. One Ghillie reported watching a shoal of around 50 salmon swimming past him in very shallow water last week. Fly sizes utilised will be around sizes 10-16 with lightly dressed flies being favoured by Ghillies. Small bright patterns like the Park shrimp, Cascade, Allys shrimp, as well as Stoats tail variants and Crathie fly are doing well just at the moment. Small hitched tubes, micro flies and hitched monkeys may encourage a highly visual take in the necks of pools. The tiny Frances patterns are also well worth a go, with Ghillies like Sean Stanton favouring these in low water. There is still plenty of fishing availability on FishDee so if you are able to visit the river and fish then please do.

Anglers are requested to report any suspicious activity on the river bank to the River Office hotline on 013398 80411 where there is 24 hour cover from our Bailiff patrols. I was delighted to hear that Mr Neil Rae, the new owner of the excellent Raemoir House Hotel, Scottish Country house Hotel of the year award winner 2011, which is beside Banchory, have fantastic packages for visiting angers with special rates from £50 per night for bed and breakfast for groups of 3 or more staying for 3 nights or more. Anglers looking to secure accommodation should call Mr Rae in the first instance on 01330 824884. There are similar offers from the super Tor Na Coille hotel who can be contacted on 01330 822242. The Loch Kinord Hotel at Dinnet also has angler’s special packages and proprietor Andrew Cox advised ’We do have special nightly offers for fishermen, and 7 night stays from £250pp B&B. Also self catering lodges behind the hotel with a lodge sleeping 4 from £75pp for 7 nights! (£300pw) with the benefit of the hotel bar & restaurant on your doorstep serving excellent meals.’ These hotels are offering great value and have really high standards of comfort, cuisine and service.
