During the sea bass season of 2014 I carried along my camera and tripod and tried to capture as many moments as I could. For me fly fishing for sea bass is the pinnacle of fishing. You fish the rough seas, have to scale walls and climb rocks. Tides and weather are key aspects, they can be in your favor but also close the window of opportunity. It is hard on your gear, leaky waders, broken rods, loosing flies all part of the game. It is hard it is a challenge....that is why I do it.
My playground is the Port of Rotterdam, the Maasvlakte. It is a beautifully contrasted arena where nature flows over into industry. Nature thrives in all different shapes and sizes, from the tiniest moss to seals hunting between the ships. I hope to show you some of the wonderful moments I captured during my outings to sea. And yes the shots with the hunting fish are seatrout! We do have them and they are steadily on the incline.
Have fun watching and if you fish for sea bass please practice Catch and Release, there is to much commercial netting in the port already.
