    Jørgen Walter with a 6 kg sea trout
    It was on one of our annual fishing trips in FLS Sportsfiskerforening where there really was catches. It is myself, who went "bananas" with a nice sea trout in "spawning suit" at 6.0 kg caught in zone 4 downstream Hagebro at the " 22 Apple Tree " at October, 6. 2001. It was caught at 11:30 in fully sunshine on a blank Droppen 3 Spinner with black dots. It was actually the time when we discovered that small lively Spinner really turn on the fish and where it all started, we made these Spinner ourselves. The trout was in good condition and gave the match to its limit, so I had to go into the water to land the fish. I was alone at the time and fishing without catching nets. My good friend and fishing buddy Bent had run "home" to warm the red wine and cover up for lunch.

    The pictures to the right are from spring 1991, when my son Flemming and I was in Karup Creek for test fishing before, we were fishing with KSF in the autumn. This tour can be found under "Club News" Køge Sportsfiskerforening. As far as I remember, all trout caught on worm. All met the minumum size of course, but perhaps one or another should be released because there were some "spawned fish" among them. Please help with the correct word for "udleget fisk" eller "nedgænger".

    No picture of the catch, but a picture of a good fishing water in Køge Creek, where I often catch brown trout or sea trout in the season. Sea trout are usually released, since most are caught in the spring, and therefore "spawned out fish" Please help with the correct word for game fish.

    The stretch lies upstream of Old Railway in Køge Ås and the stretch is fly water. You must be a member of KØGE SPORTSFISKERFORENING to fish in that stretch. You can obtain more information on membership in the following e-mail address: You can also sign up to the association at the addresses here:

    I have been active hunter for several years, but now I have not the heart to shoot my four deer, which go in my backyard. Nor should one shoot in his backyard. They have held for several years in a small fence between two fields adjacent to my backyard. Every morning and evening they come out to the fields to eat grass, which grows on the ground in winter time.

    It started with a couple who had two lambs two years ago, and this family is still together. I think it has to be two females, the male would probably hunt another male away when this male was an adult. It will be interesting to see how many it will be in May or June 2006. Since the hunting season began in October, came a fifth deer from a nearby forest, but this was not accepted and is now back in the forest.

    On the stretch from "Prambroen" to the floodgate you find some good positions for both trout and perch. Try taking the spot at the high willow tree on the opposite side. In the curve just before the floodgate, there is a large stone, and often there is also a trout, if there have not been too many on the spot before you. See map here: Map No. 1

    Another good place is upstream "Prambroen" in the first curve right after the big willow tree that hangs beyond the river. Here are often trout, perch and pike, depending on season.

    The gate at Tryggevælde Creek
    In May 2013, the entire forest area at Odden was cut down - read defaced. Now there is no more shelter from the west wind at the gate

    Other good stretchs are upstream Varpelev road bridge (members only). January, 22. 2002, I had a trout of 8 kg. The fish was in good condition, but it was a female, who had been up to spawn, and the whole tail piece was worn by the gravel and stone, so it was released. Hope to see it again in the autumn.

    Wednesday March, 13. 2002 I was again in "Trygge" and I caught a male sea trout of 6 kg and 84 cm. This is the tenth big sea trout that I caught this year. However, only kept two because of bleeding from the gills.

    There has never been so many trout in "Trygge", which is in this year. But on the other hand, there is "no" perch. I personally believe it has something to do with the trout taking over the perch spawning grounds. So in the future Tryggevælde Creek will being known for a "Sea trout Creek" instead of a "Perch Creek".

    A patch for the "no" perch: It has been caught perch, but almost exclusively on live fjord shrimp.

    All trout caught at home made Spinner from Webmaster. The Spinner is really efficient and inexpensive, costing around 15 kroner per peach. I use the type "Out-line" size 3, in the colors: Fluo Orange Fluo Yellow, Green, pearl and Glow in Dark. Remember just the tool: Wire Stik to 200.00 kr. Price depends on the number of spin and U.S. dollar exchange rate.

    Fishing license to "Trygge" you can buy here. See also Catch Reports.

    Trout caught at the Pram Bridge
    Saturday February, 1. 2002 was a colleague and I in "Trygge" to try our fishing luck. We started at 10:00 o'clock downstream "Prambroen" and came to the curve before the floodgate just after 11:00 o'clock. My fish colleague had thrown a couple of times in addition to the aforementioned rock, bang, and then sat on the hook a big "krabat". It was a big male sea trout at 5.5 kg and 82 cm. unfortunately a "spawned out fish" so it was released. Conditioning Factor 1.00, not bad indeed.

    After having consumed coffee and Danish pastry on the bench at "Prambroen", we should just try a few cast before we went home. So we decided the curve upstream "Prambroen" by willow tree. Some cast upstream, only the bottom chop because of the strong flow in the water, so I pointed my cast downstream incline towards the opposite cliff. And THEN, there was chopping. A female trout in the nice position of 5 kg and 79 cm. That must be the "fish lift". They swim in and out of the river this spring. Conditioning Factor 1.01, not bad indeed.

    However, it is absolutely fantastic with "Trygge" this year. March, 20. 2002 I was back in the river to try my luck fishing on my usual "Hot Spots". The first cast gave a little shiny sea trout of 1.6 kg and 53 cm. A few cast later knocked a "giant" of 3.5 kg and 70 cm on my Spinner and took three flights into the air before I got the rod tip into the water. I saw the fish in strong backlit and the fish sparkled in the strong sun. Just hold the line, because the fish were bright and full of good, powerful forces. The trout was a female with the roe. To not be a lie, I ended with a sea trout at 2.65 kg and 64 cm. Conditioning factor: 1.07, 1.02 and 1.01.

    After having a break in 2003 in "Trygge", I have resumed fishing. Unfortunately I could not participate January, 17. 2004 where Køge Sportsfiskerforening held trout competition in Tryggevælde Creek. At one of the images above Per Henriksen is seen with today's biggest male sea trout at 6.75 kg caught at "Prambroen" in Tryggevælde Creek. The season represents perhaps a good thing it's just about getting to the river with the fishing rod.

    Fishing in Tryggevælde Creek in 2009 has been a disaster. Several times I have gone in vain to the creek to find some water to fish in. The first time I was at the sluice in early September, I saw that booms by Prambroen was blown to one side, so all aquatic plants had gathered at the sluice. There was so much that you could almost walk on water.

    After it was repaired again, all aquatic plants collect now by Prambroen and fishing upstream bridge can not be done. See image to the left. Is that what Køge Sportsfiskerforening offers its members and anglers with one day license? Or perhaps I should say: Is that what the municipality offers Køge Sportsfiskerforening? I do not think I am getting value for my membership and therefore plans to announce me out of Køge Sportsfiskerforening in 2010.

    I think the Board should explain this problem with aquatic plants to the authorities in the municipality, so we again can get a good fishing water in Tryggevælde Creek.

    Hvis man venter, bliver det nok godt igen. Her en beretning fra min fiskekammerat:

    Jeg gik en tur i "Tryggen" få dage efter premieren 2017 - fredag den 20. januar. Vejret var skønt, solen skinnede fra en skyfri himmel og det var helt vindstille.

    Startede med at fiske "Svinget" ved slusen. Efter et par kast, så jeg en skygge, der fulgte efter min hjemmelavede spinner - Meps 2. Troede først, at det var en gedde. Kastede igen samme sted helt ovre til kanten på modsatte bred. Så kom hugget. Adrenalinen steg et par grader, og efter en 10 minutters tid fik jeg bæstet i land.

    En farvet havørred på 2,9 kg og 72 cm - konditionsfaktor 0.78. Smagte i øvrigt godt, selv om det var en nedgænger. Havde i øvrigt også en del lus. Det var nok en "elevator" fisk. Det er dem der går op og ned mellem hav og å. Fortsatte fiskeriet opstrøms Prambroen, men det blev ved den ene ørred.

    Solrød Sport Fishing Club "Regnbuen" bearings fishing rights in that crystal clear Put and Take Lake of Forest and Nature Agency. The lake is created by a factory having broken limestone in nearly 150 years. The last owner Aalborg Portland stopped digging limestone in 1975 and the lake was then well protected behind fence for some years.

    In 1979, Solrød Sport Fishing Club "Regnbuen" was founded, and so there began to be activities around the lake. Today, all can fish in the lake with a valid fishing permits, but take good care of nature because there are many wildlife in and around the lake. Visit the lake and take a brochure home and read more about the place, and particularly about the fossils found in the limestone layer.

    A platform is erected for wheelchair users at the southern end of the lake, where the car park at Silovej is the only parking option for members of "Regnbuen". A path connection down the slopes towards this platform is erected in the north end of Lake by Højagervej know where it is illegal to park for members of "Regnbuen". A somewhat cumbersome approach to the fishing grounds for disabled wheelchair user. One solution would be to eliminate the "red beam" by Højagervej and equip a parking space for disabled people.

    Fishing license can be purchased to the lake, but note the General Rules for fishing in the lake, they differ much from other "ordinary" Put and Take lakes. Remember also to hand over fishing report in the green mailbox, located at the entrance to the stairs.

    Club Championship 2002
    Sunday September, 1. Number of anglers who attended was small, less than 100 members. Today's catch was also a few fish, but of good quality.
    Today's catch was small
    The largest was 5.4 kg. Click on the images to come to the "Club News". But remember, it requires that you have obtained a username and password.
    I have been a member of the "Rainbow" for 10 years - from 1999 to 2009. In the beginning, I think it was the best sports fishing association for several reasons: One caught always a good fish, got a nice fish chat with other members, or if there was no one to fish, one simply walked around and enjoyed the lovely and pure nature. As time passed idyll changed significantly, it was necessary to have P-guard on the car on Silovej and bring a bodyguard with around the lake. Some issues in 2009 meant that I signed out of the club. It can be read here.

    NEWSBAR: I have moved and have therefore got new fishing waters. I have signed up for VSF and will be fishing in Varde Creek, Grindsted Creek and Holme Creek. Maybe also Skjern Creek and Sneum Creek.

Tina has a cod on the hook
    FLS Sportsfiskerforening sailed on the good ship MS "Tina" from Helsingør. The ship lay at anchor in Helsingør Nordhavn at the middle pier. There was room for 38 persons and galley below deck was really good and warm in the winter cold. Skipper could serve almost anything if you just phoned ahead and ordered. Otherwise, one could buy beer, water, coffee and sausages as well as any gear if we were missing something. Oh yes! It was in the god old days. Now the ship is sold and called MS Lovis Moland. The last information says she is gone bankrupt in the autumn of 2004. The ship has again been given new ownership and sailing again, but under a different concept.

    FLS Sportsfiskerforening now has a permanent agreement with the good ship MS HAVLIT and sailing now once a month with this ship from Helsingør. Are you a friend of "Heavens Bird" or related to a FLS'er try to make a trip when there is space. Try FLS Sportsfiskerforening website.

    My grandfather Rudolph Nielsen and my father Walter Nielsen with "Varde Creek salmon" from 1928. There is no official weight of the salmon, but the salmon measured approx. 120 cm and was stone bold. Another Varde Creek salmon from 1938, unfortunately no data over the salmon. The salmon can be seen beside a girl of 5 years. Behind, there is again a salmon from 1950; we see that they become smaller with the time. And there were also fewer salmon as pollution progressed.

    I even lived as a child 300 meters from Varde Creek, and I remember from the time when the money was small, my father went to the river for an hour and came home with dinner. It was also the time when "fæstekarlene = peasant" on farms along Varde Creek refused to eat salmon more than three times a week. Later in the 50s and 60s the river were destroyed by the industry, erected along the river. The wastewater was discharged directly into the river, so the fish smell and taste of carbol = phenol. Now the river again has been clean and also placed in the old river bed, so you can again catch salmon and trout.

    Note that the salmon is completely protected for three years from 2001 to 2003 to preserve the local strain. But for what use, when Karlsgårde Waterfalls stops for salmon spawning grounds upstream the waterfalls. Many salmon and trout swim confused around the outlet of the waterfalls, and die due to stress in the warm water. The lucky ones who find salmon stairs again exposed to danger when they jump from chamber to chamber. They jump over the pool edge and end up on land, for finally ending up as mink food or fox food.

    See Henning's "Varde Creek Salmon" anno 2000 by running the cursor over the image. It is really a nice fish. Henning caught his "Varde Creek salmon", May, 2. 2000. The weight stopped at 16.4 kg and measured 121 cm, conditioning factor 0.93. It was caught with a spoon blanks, they say that it was one of the cheap Korea spoon. Good that the spoon kept the power, because I have even tried them and split rings can extend itself. A big congratulations, you must have.

    To read more about Henning's catch and the big salmon in Varde Creek, I recommend that you enter the Danmarks Sportsfiskerforbund website and find No. 5 from 2000.

    Anno 2012: Above is written a lot about the deplorable conditions in Varde River has been experiencing for the past 50 years, but now it goes fast forward with new initiatives, which the river has undergone. It's something the new generation of anglers will appreciate and I also hope to catch a Varde Laks in the caliber that my parents and grandparents got hooked.

    Anno 2016: Here comes a fishing report from 2016 with two good fishing buddies from my home town Varde. Bumle and Brem I met several years ago at Langå Camping, where we fished in Gudenåen. It turned out that we had common ancestors in Varde, and ever since we met in Varde to premiere in Varde creek.

    It is not because we have emptied the river for fish, for the only thing we have caught so far are a few sea trout and some pike. Maybe a grayling that I lost last year - 2015. I hope we can keep the tradition alive, because we have a lot of fun by the river - the fire and the hot soup. Bumble and Brem I will be back next year.

    Anno 2017: In 2017 I returned to Varde creek and my 2 fishing friends, but this time it was in September where both salmon and trout are found in large quantities. The salmon quota was exhausted while I was there, so two days later I caught a nice salmon of 70 cm. Salmon to be released must not be weighed and one do not see that you take pictures of them as they immediately must be released into the river. It was a male salmon (with hook) and in the initial playing suit. A 70 cm salmon weighs according to Fulton's formula 3,500 kg, giving a conditional factor of 1.0.

    Anno 2021: As mentioned above, I was born in Varde, and in 2021 I moved back to Varde and started fishing in Varde Creek and in the surrounding waters seriously. That's why Varde Å has got its own page under "Club news" and "Varde Creek". The page requires "Username" and "Password". You can get it here.

    NEWSBAR: On 13 September 2021, VSF announced that two fish farms at Varde Creek had been affected by the fish disease IHN. This has the effect on the fishing in Varde Creek that all anglers must disinfect their gear before fishing in the river. Good luck!

    Langå Camping Information
Kiosk and grocery.
Palm Garden with Grill location
    It is time to plan my summer fishing trip in August 2004. Since I have harbored great desire to get back to Jutland to fish and particularly in Gudenåen the choice was very simple - camp at LANGÅ CAMPING. Camp chief Ervin has invited me on a 4-day fish stay in one of the huts at the camping site, as to write an article about fishing in Gudenåen here on my website.

    LANGÅ CAMPING is a calm and cozy three-star family campsite, located in protected forest middle of an attractive natural area with good fishing opportunities. There are tent facilities and rental cottage next to Gudenå. The camp is open all year, great playground, new toilets and kitchen facilities, and disability friendly. Kiosk leads all groceries and fishing gear.
    I can not even produce some catching results, but click into LANGÅ CAMPING website and see the results of last year's catch. If you are interested, you can sign up for the "Newsletter on Fisheries" and Ervin will send you a repport on a periodic basis.

    I visited Langå Camping in weeks 35 and fished for three days at the campground fish stretch but without success, so I can not produce some good pictures of my catch from Gudenåen. I can recommend the site anyway, campsite is beautiful and well maintained, and there is everything you needs. You may just choose another date for sea trout May - June, and for salmon September to October.

    You can also read about Langå Sportsfiskerforening by visiting their website. Or have a look at the Giant Salmon at 21 kg.

    Hvert år til Skt. Hans afholdes der en "Grisefest" med helstegt gris over bål i en kæmpe grill. Se billedet tv. Festkomiteen sørger for opsætning af et kæmpe telt med plads til 130 personer samt musikken og dansegulv.

    I år (2016) var vi omkring 120 deltager og fortærede en gris på 80 kg ledsaget af over 10 forskellige salat anretninger. Lejerchefens egen importerede rødvin kunne købes i teltet til en meget rimelig pris. God rødvin til 65,00 kr. finder man ikke mange steder.

    Midt under middagen åbnede himlens porte sig, uvejret brød løs med lyn og torden samt regn, der stod ned i "stænger". Godt, at vi var i et telt, som kunne modstå regnen oppefra. Det kneb med, at græsplænen kunne opsuge alt vand, så der blev gravet en kanal for at lede vandet væk. NÅ! fisker har vel gummistøvler, så problemet blev løst.

    Jan with a brown trout to release.
Bert with a 1.2 kg brown trout
    Jan loosening the hook on a small brown trout.
    Bert was lucky to get one of 1.2 kg.
    Summer 2005 is devoted to fishing in Jutland in some of the best Jyske "rivers". Camp chief Allan has invited me on a fishing week in one of the huts on Kongeå Camping Plads for writing an article on fishing in Kongeåen here.

    Kongeåen has its origins in Vamdrup and run for 50 km through the melt-water valley caused by the Ice Age and flow into the Wadden Sea south of Fanø. Part of the river until 1920 formed the border with Germany. Kongeåen is one of the most beautiful river routes in Denmark. The winding river has clear water with luxuriant vegetation. And from ancient times - when I was a child - known as the best grayling waters in West Jutland. Unfortunately, it happened with Kongeåen, like so many other rivers, the river was polluted by industry and agriculture. Thus disappeared grayling from Kongeåen.

    Grayling population is restored after the authorities and sport fishing associations took control of pollution in the'80s.
    Finally came the day when we had to take off to Kongeåen Camping. It was the middle of May and the weather seems to be with us. The weather was not too hot or too cold, and almost without rain. Grayling season had just entered, so we expected to catch some of them. Since there was no fish "calling" to the thousands of May flies who flew over the river, we decided to test first with a small spinner fishing upstream. There were not many cast, before the first brown trout sat on the hook. But we realized quick that the fish was sitting loose on the hook and that most were under size. The two largest had to be taken because they could not be released, was 32 cm and 33 cm. The result was 20 lost and released brown trout, 4 pike between 40 cm and 50 cm and a small perch. Do you fancy a fishing trip after grayling and trout of course, you can visit this site Kongeå Camping and get more information about fishing. Here, you can also find accommodation in cottages, in a now good and renovated camping place.

    Fishing license for Kongeåen may be purchased here.

    6 kg silvery sea trout from Køge Bay
    Catch site available here
    This beautiful, shiny sea trout at 6.00 kg and 79 cm were caught on May, 8. 1994 in Køge Bugt at Strøby Ladeplads. It was one of the real good warm May evenings when I really took off after garfish with light gear and no fishing nets. After a few cast out of 70 meters my lure was taken when it hit the water, and I naturally thought I hit a shoal of garfish on breeding-ground. But no! after a back stroke took a certain "Master" by the trout, and pulled at least 100 meters line of the fishing reels. Well I had 240 meters 0.24 line on my Shimano fishing reels, and the brake was properly set.

    My very long fight with the fish attracted the other angler on the spot. He came with a fishing net and helped me getting the fish on land. An incredibly beautiful fish with a conditioning factor of 1.20. Hooked at 20.10 ashore at 21.00 photographed at 22.00.
    Blank seatrout 46 cm and 1 kg from Køge Bugt
    Catch site available here
    It is May, 3. 2007, and the fishing place is Køge Bay. This is the time when the garfish arrives in the Bay. So it was garfish I went for. The first fish I got on the hook was a little trout of 30 cm. Over the next several cast, I felt more smaller chop on my lure. It appeared that there were put out smolt in Køge Bay and this smolt went for my lure. I switched fishing ground and then got a nice garfish. My fish friend got the fish with him home. Finally came the chop and I felt an obvious trout behavior in the water. The fish was not large, with 1 kg and 46 cm with a conditioning factor of 1.03, should be a good eating fish. After a few cast, I got a trout on the hook again. When I was going to net the fish, it happened, which may not happen. The hook put themselves in the fishing nets before the fish were inboard. It was given its freedom again. The size was perhaps a little over 50 cm as trout showed at the picture to the left.

    Roskilde Fjord between Eskilsø and Østskov
    A good garfish water in May is Roskilde Fjord between Eskilsø and Østskov. May 15. 2008, I took a trip to the fjord to try if the luck was with me. There were plenty of garfish out on the southern point of the isthmus, which appears to the left of the picture. Unfortunately they were not very big, but 10 garfish fillets were more than enough for 4 people. You may be lucky to catch a trout here if you come in April or early May. I have even tried to get two trout on the hook a few years ago. The picture is taken from the shore road for cable ferry to Eskilsø against Østskov.

    Deep sea fishing on the Yellow Reef with M/S Bonito

    June 1. 2009, 10 stalwart fishermen took on the Yellow Reef with M/S Bonito to try the luck with the big fish. The weather was with us, quiet and calm winds, high sun and the day before each fisherman had taken more than 100 kg of fish.

    Here ends the good fishing story. All but one got fish, the nine others got between 4 and 8 good cod from 4 to 5 kg. I was the lucky winner of a ling of 8 kg and a smaller ling of 4 kg and a few small cod. We fished over wrecks, so the fish should be there, and many of us lost more lures on the bottom. Well! but a good trip it was, and it must of course be repeated next year.

    1. Image upstream bridge requires fish license.
2. Image downstream bridge free fishing

    Fishing license to Henne Mill Creek can be purchased here.
    There are probably not many who know Henne Mill Creek or see it for a good fishing water. Nevertheless, there are fish in the river. I would of course try the river again after 40 years absence. As a child I fished in the river and the lake - Filsø - as the river drains. There are two areas on the river piece, the part which goes upstream the footbridge, here you must have fishing license, since it belongs to landowners. Downstream the footbridge is open to the public and does not require fishing license. Only the mandatory danish fishing license you must have.

    Henne Mill Creek leading to the sea just south of Henne Strand and you can drive by car directly to the footbridge and park at Henne Mill Creek Seaside Resort. I used again the Danish Spinner and the first fish I caught was a pike. Then I got 4 smolt and 6 small perch. All fish were of course released. Coming in the period May - July and fishing with worms, you can catch flatfish in large quantities as they go up the river at this time. Early spring you can be lucky to catch a "small blank trout" also called a "Greenlanders".

    I went back to Henne Mill Creek again in 2012 to try fishing. In the first throw I got a good "hug" and it turned out to be a "small" silvery trout of 35 cm. It was quickly taken of the hook in the water. I used the homemade spinner, but this time I had put hooks without barbs on. Why? Yes! I would fish in Varde Creek, 16. april 2012, and there are new fishing rules in 2012, and I wanted to test my spinner - The Danish Spinner - before the premiere. I went fishing a few hours without a single "hug" - not even from the small smolt, which otherwise tend to "hug" to everything. Just before I would drive home, I got a very strong "hug" and a trout jumped out of the water and landed in the river about 4 meter away from me without the spinner in the mouth. I estimated the fish to be 50 cm. There are trout in Henne Mill Creek, but keep tight line when fishing with hooks without barbs.

    Søvig Fishing Lake at Henne Stationsby

    Søvig Fishing Lake at Henne Stationsby
    When you are at Henne Strand and do not catch anything in Henne Mølle Creek, you should visit the lovely - but small Put & Take lake - at Henne Stationsby. There are beautiful surroundings and always shelter for the west wind. The new owner always puts out good fish and it is rare with a 0 day.

    In 2019 I was again at Henne Strand and caught nothing in Henne Mølle Creek nor in Varde Creek, so I took a trip to Søvig Fiskesø, now the lake is called. Please note that the lake has received bad criticism before 2018, but the new owner has made every effort to correct this. When I arrived, there was just put rainbow trout from 3 kg to 6 kg in the lake and you could see several rainbow trout in the shallows, which was still a little "dizzy" after a tour in fish car.

    In my experience, these trout do not bite the hook, so I went to the opposite end of the lake. After a few throws I got a huge rush in the rod and I had to fight for several minutes with my 7 foot spinning rod. It was a 6.5 kg rainbow, it could just be in the hotel's deep freezer.

    After fifteen minutes I got a huge rush again, but just before I was going to net the fish, he jumped out of the water, releasing the hook. Well! there was also no more space in the hotel's deep freezer.

    Coming 28. - 30. April 2017

    It is here in the port of Hvide Sande, Herring Festival is held the last week-end of April. In 2017, unfortunately I can not attend, having come a week before, to attend the premiere in Varde River on 16 April. I might take a trip to Hvide Sande to fish herring before the festival. In this case, I make a report and fresh images of the fishery.

    I've obviously been to herring festival before, where I took a lot of pictures of the event, but it turned out that my digital camera was broken. I discovered it only when I got home and had to up-load pictures to my PC. All 200 pictures were so overexposed that they could not be used.

    The fishing takes place naturally in locks canal to Ringkøbing Fjord and not inside the fishing port. Click on the local site and read more about the event:

    The ultimate decision for fishing in 2021 and onwards will be Varde Creek. We move to Varde - Henne, and I join Varde Sportsfiskerforening.
