This nice sea trout took the fly while I was fishing for garfish a bright sunny day in Oeresund close to Copenhagen.
Chasing the chub
Chasing the chub
In our effort to catch a chub (Leuciscus cephalus - European Chub) we ventured to Kasper's almost-home water in Sweden and cast for hours to known, chubby spots. But to no avail. Kasper has landed fish in the 2-3 kilo range here before and has taken chub on dries and nymphs.
Clear water

Water like this makes spotting fish easy as long as it is calm and sunny. You can see a lot even without polarizing glasses.

The beauty of the rough fjordland in Norway is amazing.
Grayling

This small grayling swallowed a hefty Klinkenhamer - a fly known to be popular with grayling.

Kasper casting
Kasper casting
The fish are located in the calm water between these trees and branches - or at least that is what Kasper says. Casting in there is not that difficult, and I only lost a couple of flies to the tree gods. I had one hookup, but lost the fish before I saw it.
Red Tag
Red Tag
This grayling took a Red Tag fished in the very classic downstream swing. After having tried dries in vain for a while, I referred to this old trick, only to experience some excellent fishing.
Resting

Kasper is resting in a break in the non-catching of chub in the beautiful stream.

Resting
The breaks are one of the most important parts of fishing - in many respects more important than the catch. That is at least what we say when we relax with coffee and chocolate after not having caught for a couple of hours.
Sweet Gale
Sweet Gale
The bush on the left is a Sweet Gale (Myrica Gale), which releases its aromatic smell all over the stream. The leaves are used in Denmark to produce a delicious snaps by the same name as the bush in Danish - porse.
Tent
Tent
Our fabulous Helsport tent withstood a lot of rain and rough weather. A perfect tent for three or four people.

The old bridge
The old bridge
The sturdy stone bridge gives this stretch of the stream a special ambience and beauty. The fish are usually located in the slower stretches both above and below the bridge.
The Plipper
The Plipper
One of the ugliest and most effective pike flies I ever tied: The Plipper - thusly named because it is a Popper with a Lip.
Valley

We stayed for a few days in this magnificent valley where the footpath and a small stream ran in the bottom.
