    FLY FISHING for Sea Trout: Float Tube/Pontoon Boat Fishing on Gotland | FLY TV – Gotland Silver

    September 12, 2019


    – My name is Steffan Jensen.
    – And I am Robert Hansson. You are watching FLY TV.
    Today, we are doing this: Sea trout fishing is
    my biggest passion in life. I have fished in so many
    different places around the world. The amazing thing about sea trout fishing
    is that you never know what you will get. Sometimes you got a perfect day,
    but no takes. Then you get loads of action
    when the conditions are quite bad. It is the variety of
    this type of fishing that amazes me. We are in the south of Sweden today,
    on an island called Gotland. This may be the most beautiful spot
    I have ever fished. The nature is just magnificent here. We will not wade fish as we normally do.
    As you have seen us do before. We will target the sea trout from
    float tubes and pontoon boats. We will fish further out and
    hopefully get into some really good action. My name is Robert Hansson and
    I work as a fishing guide on Gotland. I pretty much know every rock
    and every inch of the coastline. It will be exciting to fish from
    pontoon boats further out. It is quite windy today
    and partly cloudy with some sunshine. I think we have a good opportunity
    to get some good action today. Nice! Let’s get some trout. The water is nice and clear today.
    We will start fishing in shallow water. We will work our way further out to
    quite deep water with big rocks. We will be much more exposed
    to the wind out there. – It is going to be exciting.
    – And really good. The variation of the bottom is amazing.
    It is not too calm in here though. We will probably get
    some heavy wind later on. I have fished a lot for sea trout
    from a float tube or a pontoon boat. But I have not fished from
    the water here on Gotland before. This is very exciting. The spot we are fishing is a big area
    with good bottom variation. It is very deep where we are right now,
    you cannot wade here. I would not be able to get
    a fly line or a fly out to here. It is not like a drop-off at the shoreline,
    it is slowly descending into deeper water. This spot has a good bottom all over,
    the fish could be more or less everywhere. We need to fish it fast
    and see if we can locate the fish. When we want to cover
    a big area like this- -it is good that the pontoon boat
    has oars so we can move quickly. You can cover much more water. You do not have to be afraid
    if you end up further out. You can always put the oars in
    the water and row back in. And you still got control of the fins. Every time you fish you can always
    steer the pontoon with the fins. It is like the best of a float tube
    combined with the best of a rowing boat. You get the best of two worlds. The fish hopefully thinks the same. I pretty much always fish
    for sea trout with two flies. To always have
    a second option for them. This is my go-to set-up
    that I feel very confident using. It is a jiggy fly in the back
    and a pink shrimp further up on the leader. This is one of my two basic set-ups. I use this one when
    the water is getting a bit warmer. I prefer using a shrimp here instead
    in early spring and during winter. Maybe a small gammarus.
    That is a good set-up for colder water. He caught a fish.
    Really? Awesome! Nice, Steffan! This baby just took
    my Magic Minnow orange and pink fly. Good, Steffan! I think he is more or less done. A little slim,
    but still a beauiful fish. Just make a quick release
    into the water. Let’s see if there is another one home. A nice start here in the…. We are going to change spot now.
    Just 650 feet or so. We had a nice start here,
    but we will hit the oars now. When you are fishing from
    a float tube or a pontoon boat- -you should always think about safety. Always wear some kind of life jacket.
    I am wearing float underwear. It is also very good to fish
    together with someone. If something should happen,
    the other one can always help you. It is a very good thing to have
    some means of communication. It is often enough with a phone,
    but otherwise a radio might be good. You do not need any GPS connection
    or network for your phone. This will always work. Buy one that is waterproof,
    that is a good advice. The last but most important thing,
    when talking about safety,- -is to not ever go out
    if you feel uncomfortable. It does not matter if it is
    a small lake or a big ocean. If you do not feel comfortable,
    then just skip it. Do not be stupid, be smart. And take care. Even though you see me with
    my rod under my arm- -I do not fish steady as many may think. Just steady roly-poly with
    a lot of variations. Give it a good pause. I just had a bite when
    I let the fly drop for a long while. This is a nice way to keep tension
    in the line all the time. You are still in control of the fly.
    It also helps me relax my shoulders. When fishing for many days,
    things like that can really help. It might have taken a dropper.
    It is a nice fish coming towards me. No, it is nicely hooked in the mouth.
    I thought it was foul-hooked. It just swallowed that fly. What happened here?
    I think it took both flies. That is cool. First, I had a strike
    and then a slack line. I think it actually went
    for both flies. We will have a closer look at it.
    I can assure you that it is well-hooked. This is so strange.
    It took both flies. I had a strike and tried to set the hook,
    but it was just a slack line. Then all of a sudden,
    I had another bite. It felt weird.
    The reason was that it took both flies. Let’s see if we can have a look at her. Look!
    Two flies. It happens more often that
    I get two fish at once. This has never happened to me.
    Two flies. Another nice silver.
    Man, this is life. Gorgeous. Steffan, what do you say?
    Time for lunch? Yeah, sounds good.
    Let’s go in. We will change location again. We will go further away this time,
    so we will load our stuff in the car. A new location.
    It looks really amazing. Loads of structure and
    very cool rocks. Robert, what do you call these? These are rauks.
    That is what they are called. It is a very soft rock material.
    The inner core is what is still standing. It looks like we are
    on the moon or something. Let’s see if there is
    any moon fish at home. Oh man, that is a nice fish. I am so happy that I have
    this bonus fly on my leader. – It took the dropper?
    – Yeah, the big pink one. Beautiful fish. I placed the fly in here,
    I saw the fish moving in the surface. The fish was chasing the fly,
    but it took so long before it took it. I thought I was doing something wrong,
    but there it was all of a sudden. Super cool!
    Great, man! Wow, look at this gorgeous silver.
    It just smashed the dropper. – Man, what a nice fish!
    – Great! –Well done.
    – Thanks. Let’s get another one. It took this pink shrimp.
    I always like to present another option. If I would only choose one,
    I would fish this one. But I am happy to always
    have a second option for them. Maybe I would not have
    caught it at all otherwise. I am really happy about it. Fish on! That is a good fish.
    It is very very windy. I saw the birds diving in here.
    They are having a feast on small fish. I thought that they might not be alone,
    so I took a chance and got closer. This baby came and ate my fly.
    It is quite angry. It is a good fish.
    Come on, baby! – Get in the net now!
    – I am trying! Come on! I will get in the net. Beautiful. – Nice fish, Steffan!
    – Thanks. The water was a bit coloured,
    so I changed to a pink and orange fly. I chose one with a magic head
    to push some water. That pink and orange fly worked perfectly.
    Let’s put it back. We are in for
    a short coffee break. Hopefully before the evening bite. We thought we would show you
    what kind of equipment we are using. First of all, the rods. I am using a 7 weight Merisuola rod. It can handle big flies and a lot of wind. If the flies are extremely weighted,
    I like to use an 8 weight. Merisuola actually means sea salt,
    so it is made for salt water fishing. A good reel,
    in this case a Kust reel. With quite big capacity,
    if you hit one of the big guys. In this case,
    it is a slow-mo shooting head. You like using a full length line? I like the full length line.
    The XO line and Kust Sink 2. What about the flies, Robert?
    Any special patterns for Gotland? I have a few ones to choose from. You do not have a girlfriend, do you? Shut up. I recommend my guests a lot of
    dumbbell eyes flies for the movement. This is a brown fly with dumbbells. I use it as a quite effective
    eelpout pattern. I fish it quite slow and jiggy.
    It is one of my favourites. It is a great allround fly. Especially when you see
    a lot of baitfish in the water. As you have seen today,
    I like to use two flies. A pink fly like this
    with some rabbit. Easy shrimp bison and chenille. It is kind of a shrimp imitation. A great option for
    a fly further up on the leader. Further down on the leader,
    I use many different flies. I have been using this jiggy fly today. I get a lot of inspiration from my guests.
    A Norwegian guest introduced me to this. Like a good sand eel imitation
    or a baitfish imitation? We actually have a TIE TV episode with
    simple sand eel and baitfish imitations. Have a look! That is a great fly. I would like to add one thing.
    I never leave home without shrimp flies. This is my go-to shrimp.
    It looks quite natural. But it still got these fluorescent colours,
    as you know I love. It has a nice movement.
    It is a bit of everything more or less. This is usually the only
    shrimp imitation you need. It looks really nice. I like this pattern. You can watch a TIE TV episode
    on how to tie this fly. Last but not least,
    the fly I have been fishing today. I actually do not know
    what it is supposed to imitate. This is a kind of pink and orange
    fluorescent thing that moves. It moves because of the magic head. This is a very good attractor fly
    and it actually worked today. I caught all of my fish on it.
    It is really good in murky waters. Where the visibility is low. This head pushes a lot of water. Sometimes it is a very good go-to fly,
    and other times it is just too much. But today it worked. The last thing I think we should show you
    is what kind of leaders we are using. – What length are you using?
    – A bit longer than the rod. I use a 9 foot tapered leader. Then a piece of
    straight fluorocarbon, about 0.30. I want you to remember something
    if you are fishing fluorocarbon. Always bring every single piece of
    fluorocarbon back home. Every single piece that you cut off,
    as it will never decompose in the nature. Bring it back. The coffee break is over and
    the sun is about to set. I think it is trout time again.
    Let’s go out and give it a last go. Okay, so I got a double hook-up. The only problem is that
    these are not sea trouts. Let’s see if I can handle it. Come on! They look like identical twins.
    I have never done that before. I am fishing this tandem rig with
    two flies on the leader at the same time. I got one on each fly,
    but it was the wrong species. I would rather catch one trout
    than two ide. At least it is good fun
    when something is pulling your line. Let’s put it back. One took the dropper fly,
    which is a nymph thing. The head fly is a Magic Minnow. Man, I really thought
    it was a good sea trout. That messed me up. Let’s try and catch a sea trout. A strong one. I will try to turn it
    around a bit. Again on the magic head. A bar of silver. Robert, a great day has come to an end. – Thank you.
    – Thank you, it has been great. We hope you guys enjoyed it. If you want to see more,
