Freshwater fishing on Bornholm

Freshwater fishing

Pole fishing on Bornholm

A lot of people start their angler carreer with pole fishing. On Bornholm you’ll find plenty of lakes with good stocks of tench, carp and roach, and coarse fishing is  easily accessible to everyone – young and old.

Pole fishing – with natural bait

Pole fishing means in all its simplicity fishing with natural bait such as worms, corn, maggots, dough, bread or baitfish. All fish can be caught with some sort of natural bait, and in contrast to jigs, spinning and fly fishing it is not a question of “imitations”, which have to copy prey. In coarse fishing baits are the “real thing” – something that can be seen, smelled and eaten. Pole fishing offers a wealth of different fishing methods, but you do not need to know a lot about food, fishing rods etc. or to invest in a lot of special gear to enjoy a lovely day at one of Bornholms beautiful marshes or lakes.
