Electro-fishing for stock analysis of trout in a small creek down in Hylte.



Is it stormy, it is... and you may fish what is offered ... in this case a rainbow trout ...
... why the rod looks like it is doing is an entire different story and not an issue to discuss here ...:-)



Some "little ones" when our Polish reseller was out for a short trip.

Stefan and Uwe visited us with their families during the summer.
Believe it or not, but even then they looked at some lovely ladies!








Heavens ... what happened this year then??? Besides all the lovely pikes we also got such big pike-perches in a way
that we never thought was true! The largest pike this year was 118 cm and the largest pike-perch 98 cm!

insight into what happens during the 4 days we are out.




From time to time, we are also working with different fish conservation missions. Here we were in the river
Sämån for electrofishing and compare of the brown trout insertion has given some results.
The largest brown trout we got was at 40 cm.

2009-05-14 - 2009-05-24 GONE FISHING 2009 TOUR

10 days “hard core fishing"(out at 07.00, back when it was dark)
with the Askari gang. During these 10 days were caught at least
500 pikes, of which 9 pieces over the meter! Click on the image to
see a selection of the fine specimens
(all C & R of course).


"The big five" - expectant looking out over one of the lakes to
"plow through” during the 10 days in May. But when we arrived at
the lake Åsunden the fishing police Enar Hemmings was already
waiting upon us ...


A little insight into the equipment used in the "Gone FISHING 2009 Tour".


To the left, Stefan Dast, Askari, Germany who got bite on almost
everything he threw in the water. To the right Sassi Wemmer, tour
operator from Sassis Resor 7-Härad - even he had his part in the
Tour. We will return to the GONE FISHING 2010 Tour!


Click on the picture to see a slideshow on how to release a big pike.

Catch and release is a practice within recreational fishing
intended as a technique of conservation. After capture, the fish
are unhooked and returned to the water before experiencing
serious exhaustion or injury. Using barbless hooks, it is often
possible to release the fish without removing it from the water.

Once again the "Kärnåsen Gang" (Sassi Wemmer, Dag Zeller,
Mikael Bernlo and Anders Sjölander) took a fishing tour. This
time, the target was a small lake in Hultafors, explored with the
float-tubes. About 20 smaller pikes were catched (C&R) during
the morning trip.



Some nice pikes catched (C&R) by Claes Bellini during a float-tube trip.



Henrik and Håkan on a coarse fishing weekend at lake Simmesjön.
Henrik with a tench weighing 1.3 kg caught with a "cocktail" of
worm & maize. Håkan with a bream of 0.8 kg.
Henry's report:
"Just want to report that the weekend's fishing ended with 4
landed tench (the others at about 0,85-0,95 kg), a couple of fine
bream, some small roach and pikes, both on spinning and angling
(all C & R). And as a bonus a nice tan. Everything has been great,
cottage, lake, guide Pär had done everything very well and was
with us over the weekend, really pleased with everything".

2009-03-06 - 2009-03-08

During 3 days 10 "lads" were in the forest around Hyssna on a
winter camp. 50 km hikeing, building tent huts in 2 places,
building a sauna and spa, large fires, bathing in a hole in the
ice, cooking good food ... after those days you felt every
single muscle in your body. Click on the image above to see
how the construction of the hut was.

"Fire & Ice" - 2 elements playing a major role in the winter camp.

For the first time in her life Anna from Söderköping was fishing from a float-tube.
She got a bite immediately of a pike (C&R) in the Lake Lillesjö.
Thank you Henrik (fishing guide) for a wonderful experience she proudly let us know!

Even Dieter Maurer, Sersheim, Germany couldn’t give a miss sneaking back to Sjuhärad.
A pike 96 cm caught in Lake Åsunden.


A perch, 43 cm, 1,2 kg and a pike-perch, 70 cm, were
some of Dieters catches in the Lake Åsunden.


Fishing is not everything…there was time for a canoeing tour on the river Jälmån
as well as a crayfish party at the fishing guide Enars’ house. The crayfishes were
fished the day before in the Lake Yttre Åsunden.



"Chris the Jerk" Schneider, Stuttgart, Germany is back in Sjuhärad with firmness!

2008-05-08 – 2008-05-12

4 days in the beginning of May, 25 degrees, 17 degrees
in the water, blue sky, burning sun and a light windy blow
from south-east. These were the conditions when the
three German test fishermen Stefan Dast, Chris Schneider
and Dieter Maurer from the leading mail order company
for sport fishing equipment “Askari” decided to have a
little closer look to our pikes in Sjuhärad. Don’t hesitate
to visit the homepage from Askari here .


Day 1, lake 1: Chris got the fist pike over one meter.    Neither Stephan needed to “work” for a long time before
                                                                               landing the first “meter-pike”.


Day 2: Float-tube fishing and some more big pikes…


Aren’t there some similarities?


Day 3: A day-trip to the sea, resulting in 7 different species
Among these some more unusual and coloured Ballan wrasses.


Right, Dieter was with us as well. But this time he just was looking for some small fishes.


Oooops a perch as well! And even at the fourth day some small pikes!
All together we landed about 90 pikes between 75 and 116 cm during these days.
All pikes were released again (C&R) so even others can enjoy these.


Johan Johansson, Fristad with a trout, 1,6 kg,
caught close to Holmens Gård, Ulricehamn.

There was no missing of enthusiasm when the German
test fishing group from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern was
out fishing in the small lakes around Roasjö. The
group was invited to Sjuhärad to test our fishing
