On the 2Wt mostly roach and all the species that are related to them.
I'm sorry but i don't know the english names for the other fish..

You won't find any trout or grayling in the streams, altough there have been some projects on trying to keep those species...
Since our streams don't have a gravel bottom but a sandy bottom those species don't spawn...

But we catch rainbow trouts in reservoirs, mostly a boring form of flyfishing wich i seldom practice..the roach and all the species that come with them give good sport, besides that there's the sport on locating them and practicing stealth fishery, wich i really like, besides, it helped me spot bonefish and succesfully catch them on my first ever non-guided trip...

On the bigger rivers a newly discovered sportfish is an aspius aspius(latin name) (again, i don't know the english name..), once in a while ( most people do not report the catch of a salmon, i guess they take em home and frie em...one of the reasons there's not a kept record on those captures) )some salmon is hooked, but not on a regular basis, i guess there's enough to do round here...

So..i pays to sneak up to our local fish...

I'd be happy to post some on this kind of flyfishing, spring and summer is coming..


The lack of finding trout is compensated by travelling to belgium ( a 2 hour drive) where there are some small trout and grayling to be caught, no big fish however...

A popular species is a form a bass, to be caught nearby the sea and in harbours, besides that compared to the power of a bonefish or another high-rated sportfish there's not much to do round here, in terms of heavily fisghting fish that is..

Wintertime is for flyfishing for pike, tying flies and travelling to tropical destinations...and spitting trough forums like these to find new DIY destinations for bonefishing....
