Finally some fishy stuff…

Me and my fishing buddy went up in the local mountains to fish a beautiful lake. The wind was pretty strong, but we saw a few fish rising. There were both mayflies, damsels and caddis in the bushes. The fishing started great and we fished through the evening until the bugs got to intense.
This is a fantastic place just an hour away from my home. Definately going up there again very soon…

Going fishing…

I’m tying for a little trip to the local mountains. This will be my first trip of the year. I find tying interesting and motivating again. Hopefully there will be som photos, both of fish and nature. Here’s some of flies that will be fished.
A bit scruffy after a long break, but the fish will like them…

Grey Norway – a few shots from this weekend…

FemundenThis weekend me and Espen went to one of my favourite places in Norway.  This lake is the starting point of one of the largest rivers up here and it is full of grayling. The conditions were not the best, with cold water and air as well as rain. After sort of an extreme spring the season up here is delayed almost a month. Due to the amounts of rain the water level has changed to often, making the fish uneasy at times.

Despite the bad conditions we managed to catch close to fifty graylings of about 300-600 grams in size. The pattern from the previous post was the best working fly on this trip.

Fish

DanesOne always meets other fly fishermen when staying over a few days. Here are two nice danish anglers who came by one day. At one point three anglers was playing fish at the same time…

CaddisThere were lots of insects around, but they never hit the water. I´m going back here very soon…
