My motive

My name is Ruud. Since my childhood, fishing is an essential part of my life. It has always been there, and was naturally my biggest hobby.

I love to share this passion with others. In 2009, I put the first steps to set up my own business "A Day Fishing".

Since 2014 A Days Fishing is alive and kicking!

Pikeperch and other fish

Fishing on the pikeperch (walleye)

The waters of Amsterdam are filled with beautiful pikeperch, pike and perch.

The pikeperch (or walleye) is taken around 1900 by the Germans from Asia, and from the Rhine, the fish swam to the Netherlands. The perch feels at ease in Amsterdam. Thus Amsterdam the Mecca of pikeperch.

Other fish and waters

April and May

From 1 April to the last Saturday in May we fish on walleye and predator fish using worms as bait.

The fish is put back 

Catch and release. The fish caught after taking a picture is put back in the water alive. Here is no exception possible.

Supplies for a fishing trip

During a day of fishing, it is important that you are dressed warmly and that you are carrying a lunch. A fish pass is required and is available on board. 

We can moor at a deli, but there is less time to fish. In concert we can eat and drink for your care, on board or ashore. 

Coffee, tea and biscuits we have on board.

Fishing rods and equipment 

Our fishing rods are an Abu Garcia Veritas, Next Generation.

And our fishing reels are Shimano, the Exage 1000FD.

What is a typical workshop or fishing trip out?

A standard workshop or fishing trip takes about eight hours. During this workshop the basic techniques of vertical and drop shot fishing are explained and practiced. You can decide whether you want to quit before. 

You step on a prearranged place. The place where you left is generally also the place where you go ashore. 

We start with a brief explanation of the use of fishing equipment, fishing techniques and on how to deal with the stuff.
