Seatrout in Denmark 2015

p1170879 I has been thinking about a trip to Denmark for sea-trout for many times. This year I was invited by Rob, Ludwig and Richard to join them for a week in Denmark in April and therefore I asked for some info my good friend Aleš, who is experienced sea trout angler, he has been fishing in Denmark maybe for fifty times. I finally found out that I could not go with my German and Dutch friends as the week was to busy for me, but Aleš offered me a place in his gang leaving already in March. Aleš was in every-day-contact with many Danish fishermen so he had the best info. The best thing for me was that I had to organise nothing, my job was only to come to Prague at midnight. The other members of our crew, Tono and Jarin, were very friendly and communicative, so the 12 hours journey passed without problem and at lunch time we were at the see coast. I wished at least one fish, I knew, that there is really no problem to blank here. Aleš chose for us an peninsula north of the Fyn Island.

I was a little late in preparation and my friends were already fishing, so I watched a little their actions, and finally I found a nice spot between them, walked about 30 metres to the water and cast my line to the wast surface of the Baltic sea. First pull and the line became heavy and on the hook was my first ever sea trout. Not big, but it was real fish caught in the sea.

p1170832 In our three days, we caught over 80 trouts, Jarin get the biggest fish of 62 cm , I caught 23 fish, majority of size between 30-40 cm, but I get three fish over 50 cm, every evening we had a meal from raw trout (sushi, Tatar-steak) and I brought two fish home, what a fantastic trip, Aleš is really good guide.

For me was the most important and almost spiritual experience the feeling that you cast to the vast space and you have to really believe to luckiness, it was like mediation, I felt almost like the old man and the sea. Another great thing is, that all fish are wild and you can meet really big fish. And this is real “hardcore” fishing, you can be tottering in cold waves and casting again cold wind for three hours without any contact and in next fifteen minutes you can get 15 trouts including one of 55 and one of 62 cm. And it really happened to me, Aleš and Jarin (the only detail was, that I was working hard with Aleš, whilst Jarin was sleeping in the car and after the three hours he came and get the biggest fish :-) .

I found out, that the most important thing is not a fly-pattern (we get majority of fish on Aleš´s fly called  ”shit on the hook” – brown tail, brown body, game cock hackle, hook Kamasan B175 sice 4), but selection of spot and constant movement, as much water you cover, as big are your chances to meet a fish. Number of fish depends on the “rod-hours”.

I fished all three days with a prototype sea-trout rod from Franta Hanák, Airflo 40+ slow intermediate line and 5 meter long leader from fluorocarbon HC 0,24 mm. My friends, who have already had an experience with a big fish, used 0,27 mm :-) . Next year I´m definitely back.
