Fishing For Chub At Noon

20150621_133334-1

I didn’t got a lot of time today, but I was able to drive at noon for an hour to the river to look for the chubs. On the 5th or 6th cast, I hooked a really nice fish. It fought very hard, like it was on steroids… I was sure, that the chub ruined the pool, but after some minutes I caught some more fish. A really nice short trip. The nymph I’ve used was tied 20 minutes befor I went to the river. ;-)

A perfect big chub in top condition! Flawless! It doesn’t have to be trout or grayling all the time. Sometimes, the big chubs are harder to catch than trouts!

Martin Rudin’s Leftover Nymph

This is my first try on Martin Rudin’s very nice “Leftover Nymph”. It looks very realistic und is not as complicated to tie, as you may think.

Martin did a nice step by step tutorial on his website. It’s in swedish, but you can see clearly how he ties his fly.

Here is the direct link:

There you will find also other nice patterns! It’s worth to check them out!
