First fly fishing session in may with dry flies at our home stream. No raising trouts yet, but 2 graylings hooked in the main current.
Water level of the Wupper River was way too low with 40cm. Partly sunny, mostly overcast sky at around 18°C.

There’s a reason for the saying “Montana, The Last Best Place.” Whether it’s true or not, Montana is surely a special place. For 6 days we would be fly fishing in remote locations along the expansive wilderness found in Northwest Montana. The fishing was awesome, and the backdrop for it all second to none. To top it all off we legally could fish for bull trout. We had an amazing time and got some beautiful shots which we are stoked to share with everyone. Enjoy!

This spot is called “Wipperkotten” and its located in the Bergisch Land between Solingen and Leichlingen in the middle of my 30km fly fishing track:
The Wipperkotten in the Bergisch Land was built as a grindery in about 1605 and it is the last existing twin building of formerly 26 grinding sheds at the lower river Wupper.
It was private initiative which brought this grindery plant with its water weir under historical protection in 1955. Like in former times, two undershot waterwheels are spinning between both of these historical buildings. The land bound house is still used as grindery.

BOZEMAN, Montana — What will they think of next?
For Simms Fishing Products, there’s a long and eye-opening answer to that, but attendees at this week’s International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST) show in Orlando, Fla., will get to see first-hand as Simms pulls back the curtain to reveal the 2013 product line.
How’s this for starters? The world’s most technologically advanced GORE-TEX® waders. A bomber rain suit designed for all fishing conditions. A light, breathable rain jacket that’s as fashionable as it is functional. An expanded line of sun protective sportswear. New offerings in women-specific fishing clothes, and new vests, caps and accessories.
“What we’re showing to retailers and media at ICAST represents breadth and depth, innovation and forward-thinking for all types of anglers,” said Simms president K.C. Walsh.
High atop anglers’ wish list will be Simms new G4Z and G4 Pro waders featuring a new 5-layer GORE-TEX® waterproof membrane that’s 25 percent more breathable than anything on the market. As the only manufacturer making GORE-TEX® waders in the U.S.A., Simms has been able to award-winning, craft feature-rich waders that hold up to the rigors of the most demanding users. The G4Z, with a retail price of $799.95 represent the standard for which all other waders will be measured.
Also turning heads is Simms’ new Contender GORE-TEX® jacket and bibs. Close descendants of the award-wining ProDry® GORE-TEX® rain suit that was perfected (and now used extensively) on professional angling circuits, the 3-layer GORE-TEX® Performance Shell Contender products are 100% waterproof, windproof, lightweight, durable and breathable. Designed to provide long-lasting performance in a wide range of conditions, the Contender jacket has a MSRP of $349.95 and the bibs come in at $299.95.
In three stylish colors, the new Hyalite Rain Shell ($149.95) is destined to become a favorite. Weighing less than 14 ounces, the Hyalite is the perfect jacket for storing in a backpack, under the bow or even under the seat of the truck and will deliver on keeping anglers dry when the time comes.
Building upon its relationship with the Skin Cancer Foundation, Simms is debuting a number of new sportswear items with a UPF rating of 30 or higher. The new Guide Pant, for instance, has a UPF 50 rating and the eye-catching Morada shirts ($59.95 long sleeve and $49.95 short sleeve) check in with a UPF 30.
