Ooooh 2017

Ach, ist schon wieder Schnee von gestern, so lange liegt die Prüfung zurück – ich habe im November letzten Jahres das SRC erhalten. Kein Bild zur Hand, auch so ne Bundes-Fleppe mit nem schicken Adler drauf. Jetzt darf ich also funken, wenn ich Fischi fangen bin. Ahoi. Alles Gute für 2017.

A day on the baltic coast

Last Sunday I have been fishing. I didn’t meet with Marco, he was busy. So I got invited to join Peter and he fetched me by car on Sunday morning. We left heading north towards the vast shores of Wagria. After one hour continuous driving we were already almost there. Just a final stop to buy another candy bar on the gas station and then it was only a few more minutes to reach the beach. We there met some more friends and had six hours of excessive fly fishing. Unfortunately no fish, though.

Altogether it was nontheless a nice day on the coast and we had plenty of fun.

When I arrived at home I expected something like “Oh where’s the fish?”. I prayed to the gods we would at least have some fish fingers in the fridge. But it was alright without fish as everyone at home knew I had a good day.

Building another fly rod part 2

Due to given circumstances I have not been able to kick off this project earlier. On the 23rd of February we had a great handwork evening at home – Sarah was tailoring next to me and I was glueing the grip and wrapping the guides onto the fly rod blank.

I bought my parts from the US and Germany. The main reason for this is plain simple. In Germany I haven’t found any dealer for the stripping guides.

  • Loop Green Line series blank  in 9′3″ and the specified line class is #6-7
  • Cork Fly Rod Grip Reverse Half Wells – supreme quality
  • Fuji Concept Stripping Guides – SiC ring in 16 and 12 /w Chrome finish
  • Struble Fly Rod Reel Seat – Standard Uplocking U-3 – Polished Alum. /Cocobolo
  • Pacific Bay Snake Guides in 2,2,2,2,3,4,5 Chrome finish
  • Pacific Bay Fly Rod Tip Top – Chrome finish / Std. loop / size 5 tube
  • Pacific Bay Aluminum Winding Check – TiCH finish / 0.342 in. I.D.

On Sunday I am going to take it with me to the coast. I am already very excited.

March 2009

Oh no, it’s already march?! Being so busy seems to quicken the days passing by. Nontheless, tomorrow my younger brother has his 29th birthday (Hey hey (: )  and today in the evening is parents’ evening in the kindergarten (first time for me). On Saturday we are going by to buy a new table, chairs and stuff for the kitchen and leaving the boys in my mums’ care. A few hours exclusive free time. And last but not least this Sunday I am finally going to have a day on the coast to test my new self built fly rod. I am going to meet there with Marco, a friend of mine.  Sarah expects me to catch at least one seatrout for dinner. Pretty much expections….
