LEIVONMÄKI National Park, Finland

It was basically a family vacation.
the place we were looked like an endless forest with plenty of lakes around.
Fishing was a bit slow, the temperature was up to 29 degrees Celsius for last two weeks.
The was was like warm tea tea. Anyway I have managed to get some Pike on my flies.

This season on Jordan river.

The season never actually ended, the were no many rain this winter and we fished it right through.
The river is very low now, though fishing is very very good.

September trip to Lough Mask, Mayo, Ireland

A little late about our trip to Ireland in September.
We were based at Lough Mask, Mobile Homes. This is in Mayo county.
The first two days we were fishing traditional Irish style with wet flies from the boat.
I can tell you it was real hard work. We had plenty takes and few nice fish.
On the third day we went to check river Robe, despite everyone telling us that the water level is too low.
Right on the first spot I got a small trout. At the next spot we noticed plenty Daddy Longlegs at the grass, while walking to the water. So we switched to dry flies, and the action was just fantastic.
The next days we spent there, we've checked the Castelbar river, it was very similar to the one we were fishing.
Fishing was fantastic in Ireland, even though we did not really catch any trophy fish.
