I didn’t know this but I found out that you can go fishing in the Czech Republic! Start point: Prague, Czechia’s capital and biggest city in the country, which happens to be a place that I’ve been to before so I’m familiar with the place. But just not the fishing. I’m sure that if I went in the past, then I could go catch some fish that I’ve done before: trout, carp, pike, perch, etc. Or perhaps a fish species that I have not yet caught before. The most important part about this trip was that I’d get a chance to go fishing for the first time in a landlocked country such as the Czech Republic. So forget about the famous Czech beer and all that tourist crap – I’m going fishing! I’m going to take the path less traveled…. again! I needed this trip after watching FC Barcelona falter in Champions League. Something to dull the pain and stop the bleeding of suffering in misery…. luckily, salvation was here in Czechia!
My guide tried to get me hooked onto a sturgeon which was the intended species but knowing how tough it is to actually hook one, I know that the chances of having one bite would be very difficult. I tried back in California to hook and land one but it never happened as it was just striped bass and halibut. Still, the day continued to bring in more and bigger fish… including a big carp that was probably bigger than the one I caught fly fishing in the UK!
In this landlocked country full of mountains and rivers, I was glad to get a chance to try my skills at fishing this place. Like fishing in Germany and in Slovenia, you have to look hard to get that opportunity and looks as if I found my golden chance to do so.
