The season of 2016 was off to a good start, and the River Karup had already delivered a huge amount of nice fish. So on the 8th of July I decided to visit some of the beautiful stretches of water, in the areas of Vormstrup and Resen. Being an avid night angler, I was off […]

Maybe tonight… maybe!

I was alone on the stretch of river, and enjoyed a cup of coffee by the car while I inspected the silhouette on my new “Squidro” night fly, up against the sunset. It was, as always, a beautiful sight when the day’s last rays of light, really captures the sky.

Karup River – One special morning

By Jan Snejbjerg Jensen comment No Comments

Saturday October 1st I was woken by the sound of my phone. A glance confirmed my expectation. It was already 4.30 am. since I the day before had decided that I wanted to go fishing this Saturday morning. There were several reasons for choosing this day: I had an arrangement at “the red holiday cottage” around […]

Guidelines for river fishing.

By Allan Nørskov Johansen comment No Comments

There is a set of “unwritten rules” which should be taken into account when fishing the River Karup. It is important to be considerate of others and their fishing, and thereby making an effort to treat others along the river, as you yourself wish to be treated.

This debate is, not surprisingly, also present by the River […]

The fish we do not catch.

By Peter Nyhuus Jacobsen comment No Comments

At last, it was time for another trip back to the river. I left my home in Kerteminde around 6pm and had promised my wife and the kids that I would return before my wife had to leave for work at 8am. It is going to be a tough trip.

Slow versus fast.

By Henrik Johansen comment No Comments

In connection with the KÅS competition in 2010, I seriously began Fly-fishing. I started with copying other fly fishers’ techniques. The fishing was primarily during the night, and it was done completely traditionally: with a 45 degree throw toward the opposite bank, big black flies, occasional use of the nymph fly, 2 steps forward, and […]

“Nieren”. A classic fly pattern from River Karup.

By Henrik Kure Nielsen comment No Comments

The local anglers at the legendary River Karup, have through several decades supported a wide range of good and effective sea trout flies. Flies like Klods Hans, Torp, Resen, and especially the fly with the most distinctive name, Den Tropiske Gråspurv, has through my time as a sea trout angler been a great inspiration. However, […]
