Just wanted to share couple pictures of fishing in the new year. Kyle's bone was 27 inches and mines was 29 inches. Hopefully fishing stays this good the whole year.

My first fish of the year was a handsome male Bluegill taken on a soft hackle. I can't imagine a better fly for sunfish. My second was a Largemouth Bass.

I envy you guys in several ways:

- I didn't catch my first fish this year yet. Haven't even fished actually...
- I've rarely seen such huge bones. Dare I ask where they were caught? Hawaii?
- I wish I had sunfish and bluegill in my back yard. I'd be out there every day with a small rod.

Happy new year!

Martin

I am just returning from a fishing trip in Mauritius with Dominique Thevenau (Fishing and Hunting Safaris in Mauritius) and this is my first fish caught on the fly for 07: a nice GT caught in Mauritius' warm water, huge crashing waves and a great fight! We also lost two very large GT's (80 to 100 pounders ! ) on poppers and manage to catch Yellow fin tuna also on popper.

This is a warm change from sea trout fishing in DK, but I can't wait to come to Fynn in April!!!
Tight lines,

Let's see how many "first fish of the year" we can get in 2007.

This is my first fish. Released just after this photo taken by Henning Eskol.

Do not comment the black thing on top of my head.

Nice hat. I saw one a minute ago on Marge Simpson. But seriously, folks. For a fish like that I would wear the hat.............briefly.

Bob,

I wonder what you would wear (or take off!) for the second or third fish Kasper got. He is probably too modest to post it himself:



And notice: Kasper is a big guy. The fish probably about 90 centimetres or close to 3 feet! Even though it's a kelt, that is one strong fish!

I did have my doubts about the hat in question and after my own detailed investigation I found out the truth.
Marge is Kasper and Kasper is Marge.
Several Duff beer cans were found on the beach suggesting that Homer took the pictures...
Doooooh!

Martin, I would do just about anything in the fashion department to catch that fish. I already dress like a hobo when I fish. What difference could a funky hat make? That is one sensational fish. Is Kasper a friendly ghost? I hope so.

I am surpised you figured out that Marge inspired me the way she did.

Even though it eas a kelt it was a nice and strong one. Hopefully the wind will go down within a week or two, so we can go fishing for some silver bars.

So that's why I never get the big fish, I've just got a small modest hat. And there was me thinking it was my fishing techniques.........just shows you how worng one can really be Laughing

The only way of compensating for not having a hat like mine, is to get one of the new GFF caps. That will improve the size of your catches...in general.

Better late than never. Confused

Braving the cold, a broken finger, I finally felt a tug at the end of the line on February 25th. Surprised

I hope you Danes have enjoyed the snow you had in the last several days. Wink
