Finaly! After a really busy spring (and autumn) with atleast 10cancelled trips and a couple skunked ones it all finaly wen't in the right direction.

The water in "my lake" has finaly cleared up enough to have around 35cm of sight and the spawning is running a bit low due to the cold weather last week.
Did it go well? Oh yes, the ordinary pike in the area is between 0,5 and 2kg, not big and the fishing started of with a couple of small fish just aroung the 1kg mark, altough several of them had bitemarks as from crocodiles all across their backs and my hope for a grand lady started to rise. Then the rain came...
For 4hours it poured down as if someone was taking a leak from the sky but it turned into one of those calm and magic springevenings when the rain finaly ended and the sky cleared up.

We concentrated our fishing around the margins and to the area around a small creek that is the lakes major inlet. The boat slowly drifted along the shore and just when we passed a small peak of lilybeds all hell broke loose. My 10# rod bent deep in the handle and the boat rocked heavily as the fly stopped as a bullet hits a brick wall.

After 10min of my knees playing maracas and arms feeling like overboiled spagetti i landed my to this date best pike on a fly, 95,5cm from a lake with topofraphy like a saladbowl.

Thats a real nice fish, congrats! Can't wait till the season opens up here in The Netherlands (it's closed season now until the end of May due to spawning period Evil or Very Mad )

Well that means that i should be open again now then!
I think that more countries should have closed season during the spawning. The swedish arcipelago could win a lot from it.

It's midsummer feast in sweden now and the fishing is running slow due to high temperatures but im going out to do some night fishing next week.
