    KP Tour 2016 // Dry Fly Fishing

    December 7, 2019


    Yeah, yeah, yeah. We’re there. 10 days. 10 days. Finally home. Just enough for tonight. Howdy folks! No welcoming committee outside? Well, we didn’t get the time. You just jumped out of the car and came running in. Good to see you buddy. You too! This is awesome – check it out! Aaaaahhh!!! There is a trout just below me. It’s very close to the bank. I can see the fish. I will tell you if it takes the fly. You are 2 meters short. That should be a good cast. Leave the fly there. It takes the fly!! YEAH, YEAH, YEAH!!!! It’s a pretty nice fish. Oh yeah! My legs fell asleep big time. It took me 45 minutes to get on my feet! It’s time to land the fish. No!! Where is it? Haha – well done! Alright! Øksa is bringing home the bacon! Oh my it’s pretty! Ready for the release? Yes, I’m ready. Come on. Ahhhh beautiful! Goodbye. Yes, I can see the fly. Oh yeah! That’s awesome! “..freakin’ awesome, man..” That’s a pretty one. Mr. steamfisher! Real naughty fishing, there. Show it to me. Then the release. It went back to the bank. Don’t go that way little buddy. You have to go this way… …back to where you belong. Yeah, yeah. That is a rising trout. Now the fish is really close… Yep!! I’ve got it! Oh, this a good fish. It is going downstream. Coming down towards you. “Lamson reels. Never lets you down.” Haha…Wow!!! This fish is… Nice netting!! Oh my! What a fish! So pretty. Just let it go. So, how was yesterday? Good, good. All good… Hehehe – damn good! Lots of fun. Huge hatch. Nothing happened. Loads of green drakes… …insane amounts of green drakes. Loads of rises and big trout… …nothing happened. Right next to your fly!!! My behind is pretty sore.. I think mine is the sorest… …I managed to break a rod too. So that is perfect in every way. Yesterday evening we tied up some new flies. Some green drake imitations… …which we hope will lead to some better results today. There was a rise by the opposite bank. Looks like a good fish. Yeah, yeah! That is art! Øksa, the net! Pay attention! Nice one. Quite nice indeed. Damn…very nice actually! Maximum pressure – straight in the net. Took the fly on the first cast. Smack! “You’re on the mic with Mike.” Funny to see those “small trout” actually being of that size… Hehe.. yeah, they’re supposedly small, but they are really not. Yeah, that is a beautiful cast. It is a bit further upstream now. Oh yeah… Yes! That’s so well done. Awesome. Well, the fly is working great. Tied it myself and everything. Ok! This is getting serious? Damn, that was hard work! Well, then it’s… ..”adios amigo”. Brew and loose snus (tobacco)… This was very well deserved. And what kind of fly did the fish take..? Klinkhammer! Size… 16! 16…really?! No, actually 17. Of course, 17. Ok…where is the fish? Here it comes! Took something quite big. There is a caddis fly right over him. He goes for it. If you manage to present your fly in front of him… …he will take it. He took it!!! WHAT!?!?!?! He is still there. It didn’t bother him at all. …ok, deep breaths… …as you know, I’m totally cool here. Jez… There it is rising again. Probably took a caddis. The fly is going to pass right over his head. Don’t pull… right above him now. Takes it!! Yeah, yeah, yeah! Yeah, yeah, yeah! Yeah, yeah! Oh, this is a nice one. Here he goes. Damn, he’s fat! One in the right… Oh yeah? Ahh.. one in each leg. I need one more in my casting arm! Cool if it takes the fly… YEAH! F%#!! What happened? Well… Perfect strike.. Someone else go catch a fish….damn. So the fish went for it? The fly? No, the leader! Yes, this is… …NOOOO!!! There is going to be a bad mood back at the cabin. Yes it will… …because the leader snapped. It broke? Yes, it snapped. One should never snap the leader! The mood is great here back at the cabin! Just one evening left after this one. Damn – just one left! A drop came out, actually! Alright! KP Tour 2016 Let it go, let it go. Come on… We can confidently change that fly. I don’t know if he saw it. I’m pretty sure that fish is seeing everything going past. In the Jez… There! Come on! Right over him. Yeah! …darn! Looks like he’s still there. Lucky bastard! He looked at the fly again! [screaming for assistance] This one is big! Shit! He does not like me. Look at you. Is it big? That was a lot of work! Look at this! It’s so freakin’ fat! That was awesome. It’s still got power. Ok, now he’s going back. That’s beautiful. Yes, that is so pretty. And it’s wide as a barn door. Here he goes…bye, bye. I’ve got a nice fish! It has already made a couple of runs downstream. Wow! Good fish, right? Yes, that’s a damn good fish. On the light, 3-weight rod. Always that rod catching the big ones. Look at the rod bending like a straw. Be careful! What a feeling! Ahhh, check this out! This is bigger than the one last year. Freakin’ hell this is pretty! During our last hours in the river. That’s the way it is. [International fly fishing language] Check it out, mate! Check…it…OUT! Just get some life back into him and he’ll be off. Look at pretty Miss Piggy! …maybe not a pig, but still a nice fish. It’s healthy, it wants to go. Yeah…yeah, yeah, yeah! Oh, it’s a nice one. Hey! Don’t go into that rock! F#&$! So, I’ll just net it. Awesome job! Haha.

    Powder Mill Pond BASS FISHING – PART 1 HUGE BLOW UP Top water

    December 3, 2019


    Ahhhhhh. That was a nice one. That was a real nice one. It was probably 2 pounds. It kinda knocked it it didn’t. (Got one on.) Mine jumped the water and missed it. Oh I got one on… I didn’t I didn’t see. There you go. You good. You got it. Oh man, oh man. This is a huge one. (I was off on a lure but..) That’s a fat one to it look that. Two and a half that’s close to… perfect. We have it on video someplace. That was exciting. Yes, not and it’s my second bait caster topwater. It basically did what I wanted to. It was about two and a half pounds lighter than the one I was predicted but. Mine’s not huge… it’s a crappie no wonder it hit it so weird. Wow it’s a big crappie. It was so weird. And I foul hooked him. Can you hand me that? thank you Nice crappie that’s a fat one. If we had a bucket I take it home and eat it. I bet that’s what was just popping yours because he didn’t he didn’t eat it, he popped it that did you see how when it uh when I got hooked it was like on like… It it snagged itself because that the hook was on the outside. Yeah I was gonna say the way it hit it feels like a pickerel. I was just thinking the same thing. I feel like it’s dangerous or the river current. Might not be difficult but it might not be safe. Oh you know what let me check my… I think this is also a pickerel. Ah no it’s a pickerel. Alright enough of this.

    Florida Travel: Stunning Sunsets and Fishing in Keaton Beach, Taylor County

    November 29, 2019


    (lively piano music) – [Narrator] Serene. Perfect. Sunsets. Relaxing. (lively piano music) Keaton Beach is located an hour and a half southeast of Tallahassee
    on the Gulf Coast. – [Narrator] We’ve got the longest undeveloped coastline in the entire state which is pretty rare now in Florida. Secret to our fishing is
    we’re the nursery of Florida we’re where all the fish
    come to spawn because we got the unspoiled grass flats where they come and lay their eggs every year. It just makes our fishing tremendous. – The waters here in the Taylor County and off of Keaton Beach are absolutely terrific for fishing. We have these shallow,
    crystal clear grass flats that might be more like
    what you’d expect in parts of the Everglades or inside
    of the Keys, that I’m in. It’s us and one other boat as
    far as you can see right now. I think if more people learned about it they’d make their vacation plans here. – [Narrator] This is a perfect getaway in the spring or the fall to come and to enjoy some of our just beautiful stops
    along our coastline. On such as this year Hagen’s Cove there’s five or six other spots, you can just stop, get
    out and make a day of it. Pop in, pop out bring your RV, you can actually camp or rent a place. But this is a great
    place to bring the kids and sort of get back in nature. – I’ve traveled everywhere. I can’t name a place where
    I’ve been that feels like this. It brought back these incredible memories that I had of growing up. When you look forward to
    having that glass of wine and everybody watching the sunset. That’s an event for us every night. I’ve found this piece of paradise and this feeling of complete tranquility and calmness. I think one week-end
    that you would come here with your family absolutely
    would change your life. (lively piano music) (lively piano music)

    River Walleye Fishing and Redhorse in the Wisconsin Dells

    November 28, 2019


    Oh! No way! No way! NO! I got here a little early. that’s my car beeping because the headlights are on. Yeah. I’ve got to walk to the spot in the river and it’s really dark. And, I’m kind of scared! Oh I got a fish! Oh, I got a fish. Alright, I got a fish. I didn’t think it was, but now I know, I got a fish. Yeah! It’s a walleye baby! Yeah! Whoo! New species. Look, it’s a walleye. Yes. They took the bottom rig. Look at that. That’s so cool. Yeah, a walleye. Whoo! All
    right let’s get this off. Look a those sharp little choppers on that guy. All right,
    let’s let him go. It’s a good decent size fish. Get out of the way of these other poles. Oh, no way! No way! No, you can’t get off. No way! Oh, yes. No way! This is a redhorse sucker. Oh, no way! Look at this guy.
    Species 26, this big. Holy cow! Wow. Wow look at this guy. Holy cow. Just caught it on a bottom rig, a worm on the bottom. Man, these things are huge. All right, everybody. Let’s talk about how I’ve caught these fish. The walleye I was on a bottom rig and it had a little bit of minnow and worm on it and it was just
    sitting there and when I saw my line or my line or my rod just tap tap tap tap then I reeled in caught the walleye. This that redhorse sucker, man that was a big fish. That was on a slip sinker rig. See the slip sinker here it is it goes up and down
    and then I’ve got another sinker to stop it. So that’s what I was using for that
    and at the end of it is just a little worm, and if you can feel a sucker hit,
    you’re something. Let me tell you. I was reeling it, and reeling it slow and it
    didn’t you know bounce like it normally does off the bottom when it’s rolling
    you know and then I’m like oh man there’s something there and then when
    the sucker realized it was on. Then it pulled hard. That was a big fish. Those red horses get big. The walleye it wasn’t that big, but it was still awesome. Man, two different species. The first two fish, two different species. Yeah! Let’s see if I see if I can catch some more Whoo! Smallmouth! They fight awesome. That was fun. Wow. Three fish. This is some kind of day,
    yeah, this is my day. Yes! Look at this guy. That’s a pretty fish. All right, let’s let you go. You’re probably going to get out of here fast Well, overall, I gotta say it was a good day. Caught three fish, two of them are new! A walleye, and then the redhorse sucker.
    That sucker was big. Those things get big. That was cool. I’m gonna go out again some other time and try and catch a walleye a different
    time we’ll call this the redhorse sucker trip. All right, give me a number
    one, you’re number one. Thanks for watching. I’m 25 and 26 species caught
    while filming here in my home state of Wisconsin. Yes! Make sure you push
    all the good buttons keep following me as I try to catch all these different
    kinds of fish here and Wisconsin. YEAH! Give me a number one. You’re number one. YEAH! See these. These are not flowers. These are the spawn of Satan. Ragweed. I hate you! I shouldn’t get that
    close. I better go. I’m gonna stop filming because in about three seconds I’m gonna have an allergy attack.

    Decisions, decisions, decisions…who wants to make decisions when they’re on vacation? Should you helicopter to the bottom of the Grand
    Canyon? Or walk on the Grand Canyon Skywalk… …on your Las Vegas Grand Canyon West Tour? That decision was

    Scenic Grand Canyon Airlines’ newest tour package… …where you can see and do everything that makes Grand
    Canyon West unique without blowing your whole day! Your adventure begins when Scenic Grand Canyon Airlines picks
    you up in a van or motorcoach… …and transports you to their exclusive terminal at the Boulder City Municipal Airport (61B). Then you’re up and away, over the austere
    yet dramatic visuals of the Mojave Desert… …the colossal Hoover Dam, and the gravity defying Colorado River Bypass Bridge! You’ll get the ultimate bird’s eye view of not only the Dam and Bridge,
    but Lake Mead, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world. As lake turns to river, the Grand Wash Cliffs rise up before you as if
    a mighty hand has punched a hole in the very crust of the Earth. Up ahead is the Grand Canyon! Your plane touches down
    at Grand Canyon West, a Native American Tribal Park… …owned and operated by the Hualapai Indian Nation. Next
    stop: the bottom of the Grand Canyon! At Grand Canyon West, getting to the bottom of the Grand Canyon
    is easy: an exhilarating helicopter flight to the canyon floor! You’ll get up close and personal with the Grand Canyon’s rugged
    cliffs and majestic spires before touching down at the bottom… …where a pontoon boat will take you on a
    leisurely cruise up the Colorado River and back. After your river ride, it’s time to reboard your helicopter and
    fly back to the rimside, where motorcoaches are ready… …to begin your tour of Grand Canyon West! Your next stop is Eagle Point, site of Arizona’s newest
    and most exciting attraction: the Grand Canyon Skywalk! This glass platform juts 70 feet (24 metres) past

    of feet above the bottom of the Grand Canyon! Here you can also learn more about the Native people of
    the Southwest by touring replicas of their traditional dwellings… …or enjoying a dance or cultural program at the Amphitheatre. A hearty barbecue lunch is served at Guano Point, where every
    single table has a view of the Grand Canyon! Named for a now defunct mine from the 1950’s, after
    lunch you can walk around the promontory… …to view the old tram line and other implements that still remain. Eventually it’s time to head back to Las Vegas, and the beauty of this tour
