fly fishing in Poland

Autumn beauty

October 17th, 2007

Absolutely beautiful weather, with little frost at night, but full sunshine all day long. The wind wasn’t helping us with quite hard fishing, still we cannot complain about the results. Looks like the good weather is going to end soon. I hope anyhow to have a few more brilliant fishing days this year.

Friends group

October 10th, 2007

What a week! Along with a group of friends including Barry Unwin from Fulling Mill, Pat Stevens from Flytek, Jeremy Lucas and Paul Procter we fished the San. Each one of us had the best fishing this year. The amount of fish caught was unbelivable, even that the fish were active for no more than 3-4 hours during each day. It was almost all about dry flies and spiders. The trout are very active preparing for spawning, so you can’t avoid catching them. Water is low and clear, although we had few showers during that week. When sun sets the temperature falls very quickly and we even get some frost in the mountains.

Autumn rain

October 3rd, 2007

Heavy rain since early morning spoiled the lovely weather we had for past few days. River got slightly tinted at it’s minimal level, probably there might be a water drop soon. Look what splendind colours the autumn brought to our region!

Lucky day

September 28th, 2007

I was driving close to the no-kill, luckily had a rod and waders in the car. Stopped for a while and found myself in the middle of the usual fish madness just before the storm, which was coming. Got 20 fish in 30 minutes on dry, then all stopped and I had to run back to the car because of rain.

Good fishing

September 26th, 2007

Water got lower and clearer. Good hours to fish are between 11am – 4 pm. I had a short session this afternoon: got 45 cm rainbow (which is rare in San river) then grayling started to take dries so I had around 12 fish with a tiny cdc nothing-at-all fly. 2 of them were over 40 cm. Good day.

Difficult

September 24th, 2007

Nice weather continues, up to 21 degrees today. Fishing is not at its best, but possibly because of another water level change. I managed to convince one lovely 40 cm grayling to have my nymph, then insisting on dry I was ignored by rarely rising fish. Well, tomorrow is a new day… Oh, just read that they anounce snow around half October!

High water continues

September 21st, 2007

Beautifull weather since yesterday, the level slightly dropped making fishing possible only in few places, yet dangerous. There is however quite a big activity in the afternoon on dries.

Water rise

September 19th, 2007

After all night rain the river is high again and even more heavily coloured. No fishing.

Weather swing

September 17th, 2007

Water level dropped to average, however it is still coloured. We have a weather swing – from 20 degrees and beautifull sunshine to heavy rain. You can anyway spot fish taking dries…

Overflows opened

September 12th, 2007

Overflows were opened on the Myczkowce lake – no way to fish. Still raining….
