After this year's failed attempt to come over to Denmark and visit Fyn and the Fly Fishing fair, I hope that next spring shall be different.

I'm in the initial planning stages of my trip and would really like to visit Fyn and Ripley von Twinkletoes, the Fly fishing Fair then onto Bornholm to catch a big Sea Trout.

Has anyone any good websites, contacts, prices, anything I can use to find as much out before hand, so that I can start saving and have a well planned trip?

You are welcome to visit me and my fishing domain Wink and share my booty of sea trout.
You can stay at my friends B&B = Dkr 150 per night and that's just 1km away from Wedellsborg area and 700m from my house.

I am not sure if the fly fishing fair is on for 2008? It seems to come around every 2 years but I may be mistaken there.
O well, that's an extra weekends fishing for you then?

What more is there to say?

Just let me know time and duration and it's sorted. ripleydavenport@mail.com

Regards
Ripley

Thanks Ripley, I really appreciate the offer.

I pretty flexible as regards when I can travel, but obviously I want to experience the 'optimal' periods as opposed to throwing away my time, not that fish is ever a waste of time (god forgive me for thinking such a thought!).

Obviously cheaper the better, but I'm not going to be so tight that my fishing is going to be affected Wink

If there is no fly fair this year, I can basically come over whenever. I've been discussing the trip with a few friends, but they seem a bit poor and would like to wait till nearer the time. So I'm a bit sceptical as to whether they'd come at all. We'll see.

When's the best time to fish where you are? Also on Bornholm? Though with that said, I may have to fly so it'd only be a trip to your fine self.

Remember that there is no fly fair in Denmark. It's every second year in Denmark alternating with The Netherlands. This year it's in the lowlands.

And fishing on Bornholm in May where the Fair is, is not the best time of year for the rocky island. March and April are better choices - even February.

When's the best time to fish fyn? Can this be easily combined with the best period for fishing on Bornholm?

I've understood that the summer is optimal mullet (multe) time, but when do they start appearing in significant numbers along the danish coast?

As regards the fly fair, maybe that's something that can experienced in the future. Another thing to look forward to Smile

Sure. Springtime will be equally good on both islands. March and April are generally good months for sea trout. Bornholm fishing will usually slow down in May and not really get going before September and October again.

Mullet have been very abundant during the late summer and early autum, but unfortunately their numbers aren't as high as they used to be. We still see large schools, but just a few years ago they were a very common sight almost on all trips. The latest years have been a lot slower.

The fair alternates between Denmark and The Netherlands, so 2008 is Dutch while 2009 is Danish. The Dutch Fly Fair will be described here in due time: http://www.flyfair.nl/flyfair-english.html
