FLYFISHING SCHOOL - RIVER KARUP
 

   FLY FISHING COURSE - RIVER KARUP

     River Karup is probably the most famous Danish river due to its
     excellent seatrout fishing. At one time the World record belonged
     to river Karup with a giant seatrout of 14,4 kg.  Nowadays, seatrouts
     of +10 kg are taken each year in the little magnificent river.
    
     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 Red Tag Palmer, Simple
     Blue Man, Johannes, T & L, Nieren as well as other local variants
     of well known patterns are all in use by the river...
    
     The river is clear/brownish and most often the water level is about
     1-2 meters in depth. The river is a comparable small river, which makes
     it easy to fish with one-hand as well as two-hand rods. Most places the
     river is easily fished without vegetation to disturb casting if doing
     overhead casts.
 
     The seatrout normally begins to enter the river in late April-mid May
     and then continues to run during most of the season. In July you will
     often see good runs that within a day or two will be way up the river.

   SEATROUT FISHING - RIVER KARUP 

 
     Seatrout fishing is an exciting endavour - the wave before
     the fish when it is about to take, the misty mornings, the
     draw in the line when the seatrout takes a "stroll" down 
     the river, the exciting moments when you know that the
     fish are in the mood for some serious engagements... 
 
     This video captures some of these magic moments and 
     although in Danish you will probably acknowledge the 
     moods, the river, the weather.. 
 
     The video is captured from the lower/middle part of the 
     river - enjoy...! 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Your weather just got better.
   TEMPERATURES
 
     Temperatures do affect the seatrouts willingness to hook
     on a fly or take to a spinner. Water temperatures are to
     99% affected by air temperature so it might be good idea
     to check prevailing conditions beforehand. 
 
     If the water temperature is too cold or too warm the seatrouts
     behavior will exhibit a state of inactivity and only when
     temperatures rise or fall will behavior change...
