Fly fishing – obere Argen

Yesterday afternoon a friend of mine invited me to go fly fishing at the “obere Argen”. This was my 4th time and slowly I’m able to throw the line/fly where I want it to be and it does not look like I’m training lions at the circus. It’s a lot of things to memorize at the beginning but it will go by heart soon (I hope). But this makes fly fishing challenging, there is always new stuff to learn, like “reading” the river. To know where are the likely spots where the fish are, imitating the natural move of a fly … (tying knots, for flies who got caught in a tree)

The rainbow trout will be barbecued today, just with a bit of salt, pepper and butter.
That’s it, just kept simple for the full flavor of a fresh catch.
