This 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.
The snake was very active. It warmed itself in the sun and then took a swim to cool down. It´s a grass snake (Buorm,Natrix natrix).
