Come with me to "enjoy" a real dog day while fishing for stillwater rainbow trout on a smaller Czech reservoir, which is managed in a trout regime for the purposes of commercial fly and spin fishing! See how I did when fishing from the bank!
"On The Water" - Weekly Fishing Blog: A Typical "Dog Day" On Still Water
Hot summer dog day on my favorite small stillwater within my holiday! ☀🐶😥
12 hours on the water 😲, every strike was an exceptional affair you definitely don't want to waste! 🤯🎣
Here is a list of my all-day efforts regularly accompanied by strong swearing! 🤬😅
❎ Fishing small attractors with fast retrieving on intermediate & hover fly lines...
✅ Small spiders with extremely slow retrieving on subsurface Hover fly line! ✊
In my report mosaic you can see the most successful flies:
👍 AR Hot Head Peacock Spider & AR Badger Green Tag Stick Fly 👌
Finaly... Every fishing day is a beautiful day full of new experiences and knowledge to next trips! 🧠🌊😍
I wish you a nice summer days & tight lines! 🤘☯
A beautiful sunny day, the clouds are still hiding behind the forest and there are only slight ripples on the surface. Today it definitely doesn't look like a succesful fishing day !!
After all possible tested methods and fishing tactics, a nice rainbow took my fly and here is in my net. This fish means motivation for my further efforts!

Face to face with a pretty spotted rainbow. In such weather, fish are usually in worse condition, if you catch & release, do it as soon as possible! If you want to take them, do not hesitate! ;-)
In the hot summer weather, when the occasional activity of fish on the surface is visible, I like to catch with the "Washing Line" method with indeterminate patterns of small Hare's Ears nymphs!
The curious visitor crawled to look at my actions. Small snails are also a rich part of trout food on still waters!
In the end, I didn't go home empty-handed. I like to keep nice fish from private waters and with no remorse. As uncle Bob would write: "The summer fish at this type of fishery are of good quality and ideal for the smoker"! :-))
I will be looking forward to seeing you in the next episode of "On The Water". Something tells me I'll have to come back here for revenge! ;-) Tight lines, Aleš
