Hello Fred,

My home river Dill is about 80km north west of Frankfurt (Germany), the village name is Werdorf. Try to find that village on Google Earth maybe that there are some more pictures.

I love that river, but it is not comparable with your fantastic rivers and streams in North America

Ahhhh, not to worry about the size of the fish, you adjust your 'gear' accordingly. Pacific Northwest is a total hoot as to what is the 'appropriate' rod size. Where are you, what are you fishing for and you could be from a 1wt (6' Baby Boo) rod to a 10. Home water is the Rogue River (Southern Oregon) and we have several runs of Pacific Salmon, and those can go to 50+ pounds. Upper river? Trout at a half pound, and everything in between the two.

You just 'gear up' as appropriate. Interesting to hook a Pacific King Salmon on a 3wt rod .... NO CONTEST!

Damned things will take the same small flies you'd use for "half pounders" as we call them on the Rogue. Whole thing take less than 20 seconds or you've got a 4 piece rod into far more bits and pieces .......

Edit: The 1wt will be where the Kings/Steelhead can't get. A 5wt? ... lots of guys, me to, will 'go there' for Summer run Steelhead with low water fishing conditions. Not at the moment for me, but that's what 'Fishing Pard' uses in all but the most extreme flows. But Rich has this small bit of water 'wired.' If 'there's a Steelhead, he'll probably hook same.

Would take very little attitude adjustment to learn how to 'hate' this guy. He/this bit of water (and I do mean 30 Meters) is 'wired in.' He knows every bump on the bottom like he ... well, lets not go there .. Porno stuff.

Hi Fred,

You have one big advantage, a big salmon could break your rod. For that experience I have to step on my rod by myself here in Germany

Hello Thorsten,

I am welcoming you to the forum and placing this link for you; http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...to-bucket.html

I hope you can translate it well enough for it to be of help. If you open a Photo Bucket account the posting of pictures is very easy. Other photo services may be easy also but this is what I use.

Willkommen im Forum,

Ard

Hi Thorsten. From Australia Guten Morgen und willkommen.

Good morning and Welcome as it's 12.08 am over here.
A few German words I remember from friends I've worked with & had as neighbours.
A nice Brown Trout
Cheers.
Brian.
