De naam van deze vlieg is bedacht door de bekende hengelsportjournalist, Bertus Rozemeijer. Wij visten toen veel op de Duitse riviertjes zoals de Lenne en de Kyll en vingen ons werkelijk te pletter met deze vlieg.Het vliegje is eigenlijk een afgeleide van de Quill Gordon, maar dan met andere kleuren. Het is een vliegje dat mij nooit in de steek heeft gelaten, want ook op andere rivieren deed hij het meer dan prima. Ook toen ik voor het eerst op de Engelse kalkriviertjes viste was dit dé vlieg.

Zelfs wanneer er niet of nauwelijks enige activiteit op het water was te bespeuren, werd deze vlieg van het wateroppervlak gepakt. Het...

The first thing is to figure out is were to go? There are so many options, Bahamas, Mexico, Belize, Los Roques, The Keys, Cuba... It will depend on both your budget and preferred way to fish. Some places offer miles of wadable flats, while others solely offer fishing from a boat. I would suggest contacting a reliable travel agency specialized in Fly Fishing trips or whenever possible, ask someone from your local flyshop. Maybe they have fished some places and can offer you some good advise on both locations and the right tackle to take with you. 

Flats fishing is one of my favorite things to do in the whole world. But you have to...

Are good polarized sunglasses really necessary for fly fishing? We can be brief about that ... YES!

Many fly fishermen think they don't need a pair of good quality fly-fishing glasses. Good polarized sunglasses are indispensable for almost any type of fly fishing. Whether it's spotting a Trout in a river, a Bonefish on the flats or a Salmon in a pool ... when you can see the fish properly you are able to fish better and more effectively. A good pair of polarized sunglasses are even indispensable for many forms of fly fishing.

Toen ik begon met vliegbinden waren de materialen nog lang niet zo geavanceerd als tegenwoordig. Genetisch gemanipuleerde skins waren niet of nauwelijks verkrijgbaar.Veel kleiner dan op #16 binden kon eigenlijk niet en ik zocht dan ook naarstig naar manieren om toch die goed vangende vliegen te kunnen binden op haakje 18 en 20, wat soms voor de schuwe vlagzalmen op de Lenne noodzakelijk was.

Het vliegje dat ik jullie deze week wil laten zien is er zo eentje die in deze periode is ontstaan. Een doodsimpel vliegje van Struis, waar je binnen de kortste keren een behoorlijk aantal van...

The amount of Fly Lines out on the market today is huge. No wonder many of us are struggling to find out which line is best. The balance between a rod and line is vital! A fly fishing line can make or break a set after all!

It is difficult to buy and test 'all' lines as fly fisherman, but also the financial aspect of purchasing a whole bunch of different lines comes into play. Reading this article is not only interesting for anyone who wants to know more about lines and flycasting. But it will save you money in the long run!

A lot has changed when it comes to fly lines in recent years. The Tapers have become more and more...

This video is about fly tying a Cinnamon Caddis, sedge pattern for fly fishing This Sedge pattern is my favorite fly for fishing for trout in Germany and Slovenia. I alway's use the Daiichi 1220 in sizes 16 and 14. It has the perfect profile to imitate Sedges and because it floats low on the water it will attract even the most educated trout. Floats like a cork fishes wel and looks cool... the perfect Sedge pattern.

Vandaag wil ik jullie graag laten zien hoe je op een eenvoudige wijze een Sedge kunt binden. Sedges -ook wel caddisfly genoemd of in goed Nederlands: een Kokerjuffer- komen overal ter wereld voor en staan hoog op het verlanglijstje van de diverse vissoorten waar wij zo graag op vissen, zowel in de nymph-uitvoering als droge vlieg. In dit geval betreft het de versie van een droge vlieg.

Wanneer je ergens nieuw aan een rivier staat is een Sedge vaak een goede keuze om mee te beginnen; zeker in de avonduren. Pas uitgekomen Sedges doen dan vaak pogingen om wat onbeholpen zwemmend de oever...

Van de redactie:

Onze nieuwe gastbinder mag zo langzamerhand wel de nestor van het Nederlandse vliegbinden genoemd worden. Het gaat namelijk om Kees Pootjes!Kees vliegvist al vanaf 1973 en bindt sinds die tijd ook zijn eigen vliegen. Hij werd daarin, binnen zeer korte tijd, heel bedreven en was dan ook vanaf de eerste FlyFair een van de vaste gastbinders en is daarnaast te gast geweest op veel vliegvisclubs en vliegvis-evenementen in binnen- en buitenland.

Misschien dat zijn werk als fijn-instumentmaker hem wel geholpen heeft om dit zo snel onder de knie te krijgen want ook in daar moet je beschikken over een goed oog-hand...

Yes! a very large selection of Whiting Farms Capes and Saddles is on it's way to Europe. On a side note... only a few people know that the Q in Qflyshop actually stands for Quality. We only offer quality flyfishing gear and materials that we would like to fish and tie flies with ourselfs. All Whiting products are of exceptional quality so we are happy to become a dealer.
 
We have been comparing Capes and Saddles from many companies lately, in search of the best feathers for you! Now to be honest, there are cheaper options available. But sometimes spending a little more on a product means that in the long run, it is a cheaper...
