    Keith,

    I don't know if the ides are on the fins in April, but I'd think so. We usually see them later in the season on the Baltic coasts, but my guess is that they are in the Odense Aa all year. You can give them a try if catching lost of sea trout gets too boring...

    great article! I love Ide and have caught them in Sweden, Karlstad. I am coming to Fyn in April, would there be any Ide around that early? I believe the river running through Odense has Ide, would that be a good place to try? We will be sea trout fishing but I would like to try for ide as well.

    Spelling mistakes happen, were not all perfect. I personally have always been bad at spelling and language, so it happens more with me then most. Sorry to all the grammar natzis out there... haha!

    Some people are good at language, others at math, etc... you might be good at English, and language in general. Maybe your also good at math, not sure. We just aren't all the same. I was doing advanced algebra at 4 years old, however couldn't pass English classes to save my life. I don't think negatively about people who can't do math, because I rejoice in their strengths not their weaknesses. I hope those who have a problem with misspelling can understand that as well.

    Jeff,

    If their/there/they're, too/two, it's/its and lose/loose is your battle, you are basically bound to lose (pun intended).

    Even I, as a non-native English speaker, find these errors all the time, and even though they do bother me, they don't take much away from my appreciation of the fact that people actually make great content (like this video) that I can read and watch for free. Sure it would be nice if everything was spelled perfectly, but that's not the case I'm afraid. And the errors are becoming more and more common. That's part of how language develops.

    I'm sure the spelling control simply convinces people that all is OK - and that time will roll over us ant *beep*'ers as many of the "alternative" spellings eventually will be allowed and finally the norm.

    Dame Juliana spelled the title of her book "A treatyse of fysshynge wyth an angle". She would probably roll over in her grave if she saw it written "A treatise of fishing with a rod" as we would do it today.

    Just curious, why did you spell lose- loose? I see this all the time, do you not know better or why exactly? thanks

    Robb,

    The eyes are usually made out of metal, lead, tungsten or brass. These are painted, which is sometimes available, but can be fixed with some nail polish if you can't find them painted. Size depends on hook size, but these seem to be about 2.5 mm or maybe 3 mm in diameter. It's probably not critical.
