Flyfishing in Germany

In the river, the brown trout dominates but you also find grayling, wild carps, chubs, pikes, perchs, rainbow trouts and European eels. The stretch, my friends and I exclusively fish is about three kilometres. The water is producing about 200 kilos of brown trout per kilometre every year. The reason is that there is such an amount of food especially insects. The top time of the year are the first days of June when the may fly is coming up to the surface of the water. The fish are eating so much that they look like pregnant. On dryfly I love a line with weight number 4 for exemple my Loomis while on bigger flys the Orbis with a weight 5 line is my first choice. Sometimes I even use a handmade old little Brunner splitcane rod which I dry after fishing by hand just to keep it in good shape. It is up to the liking of my friends how they handle the catch and release procedure.
