This episode
A trip to the Danish coast in May means garfish. This particular day was quite windy but sunny and nice most of the time. It started off as an orgy with so many fish that we lost count. Once it settled a bit I started recording to talk about these entertaining and easily caught fish, which run in the millions every spring.

PS: We didn't catch or even see 1000 garfish, but it was the name I gave the folder with the pictures on my computer, and it stuck.

Images for this day's podcast
Hooked - This garfish was hooked on a fairly large sea trout fly rather than the very efficient smaller flies we usually use for this long and slender fish
Green scales - Garfish have green scales and green bones

Dances with garfish - The garfish is a very energetic fighter

Good weather, great fun - Garfish are most active when the sun is shining and there\'s a decent wind blowing. That makes for some really convenient days on the water.

The box - Not many garfish flies in here, but they will try to take anything you throw at them anyway.
