Merry Christmas

Since my return to Germany last week I haven't been out fishing a single time. After a half year abroad there are so many other things you like to do. Now on Christmas the landscape is beautifully covered in snow and ice. Time to give the fishes a little rest.

   Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year to all of you!

arctic char

The Bergsgården “ice fishing - army” proved a more or less unknown lake in the woodlands of south eastern Värmland. None of us went home without catching at least one arctic char. For me and some others these were even the first arctic char ever. “Rödingblänke” and maggot proved to be the most successful method. Although I was a little sceptical referring my tackle I did quite well with 4 fish.


The biggest of almost 2 kilos was taken by the “gubbe” Johan.


 The char varied a lot in colour. Some of them with beautiful shining red bellies...


others appearing in dark colours. But the majority was more pale in colour. Air temperature around -2 °C and occasional snowfall made fishing quite comfortable.

is providing you regularly with the latest news on my fishing activities in Forshaga, Sweden and the rest of Europe. Some of the activities are related to my studies at “Forshaga Sportfiske Akademin”. 
This blogg represents up to date sport fishing. Therefore a great value is set on C&R respectively selective harvesting practices.

Tight lines & skitt fiske!
