I had a meeting at one of German fishing syndicates Saturday evening and picked up license nr.1 for this year.

 

The following day I collected license nr.2 from my other German syndicate and actually did a little fishing.
The weather was awfull, chilly and rain so hopes where not that great.

 

Shiners where not to be found so after a while I switched from nymphs to a streamer and probed the stream.
I got a good tug at the pool way in front of the fish passage which was off limits untill the trout season 
opened on March 16th.

Turned out to be a pike ... my gill grip was a bit rusty so blood was spilled ... mine :-)
