Skjern Au Denmark

Hi everybody!

Im going to fish the skjern au in denmark for 5 days by the end of this month.
Though I have fished the river for a couple of times for 3-4 hours (when on vacation with the family), I cant say that I`m experienced. The guys at the local fly shop recommend to fish intermediate heads and rather small tubes, many fishermen use heavier heads and bigger flies.
I would appreciate any input and suggestions about appropriate gear and tactics.

Thank you

No idea about this river. Dont even know where it is. But as with anywhere, the lower the water the smaller the fly and shallower you should fish.

Flies and lines

Hi Stefan

I don't have very much experience with Skjern , but I would highly recommend you to visit Korsholm (fly, hunting- and sportsshop) in the town of Skjern.

You can find direction/adress on

Ask for Jimmy or Henrik. Both guys know their way around the river and will certainly be able to tell you which lines and flies that will increase your chance of a hookup.

If you want to be prepared you can also email them through their website.

Another option is to ask on one of the major forums in Denmark.

I'm sure there are people on this site that can point you in the right direction.

Last thing - be sure to purchase the different needed licenses (you can do that at Korsholm). They also have the latest updated rules regarding the fishing.

Petri heil
