FLYFISHING SCHOOL - RIVER SKJERN 
 

      FLY FISHING TOURS - RIVER SKJERN

     The river Skjern is probably the most famous Danish salmon stream
     and this reputation is well deserved. More than 1,000 salmons were
     caught last year and with an average weight above 5,0 kg this
     ranks the river Skjern on top of the line.
    
     The river is easily fished with one-hand as well as two-hand rods
     at most places and tube flies as well as double and single hook flies
     are in use by the river. Patterns such as the Beiss fly, T&L, Jock Scott,
     Chillimps, Green Highlander are used extensively as well as local
     variations.
    
     The river has a steady flow of water often with a brownish tan to it.
     Stretches varies between flat lands and more sloping areas at the
     upper stretches of the river. Water level can move up and down a
     bit, but the river is neither affected by tidal water nor rain to really
     seriously jeopardize fishing possibilities.
 
     Best periods are the first two weeks when the season opens and
     when it closes. Last year more than 60 salmons were caught on  
     the opening day. As always actual catches can vary during the 
     year. 
 
     This river is certainly worth a try if you want to fish in wonderfull
     surroundings by a river that holds salmons throughout the season.
    Please remember that only barbless hooks are allowed and that you
    will have to have a special salmon permit when fishing this river (costs
    DKK 100,-).

       RIVER SKJERN SALMON ON A FLY -

     Fly fishing is the most widely used method for getting in
     touch with the river Skjerb salmon and with good reason -
     most places the river is easily fished with a fly and often
     the salmon seems to be more interested in a fly than in
     other dishes served in front of him.
   
     The video to your right shows a salmon fight during one of
     of the first days in the sesaon (16. April - 15. October).
     When figheting salmons it is paramount to let the fish  
     "loose" the first minutes. You cannot force a grown salmon
     without risking loosing it during the first part of the fight.
     Later on when it gets more tired you stand better chances
     of controlling what is to happen...!
