Norra Bunn

What a weekend! New fishing water, no clue where to go but fish anyway. The weight was from roughly 7 kilos down to around 4 kilos for the top three. Fishing on my own - the landing net lying at home - made the measuring and photographing pretty difficult. Bloody fingers and a mess in the boat. A 94 cm fish and also an elk swimming through the lake did not make it to the camera. You can't have everything...

After all the flyfishing in Norway we finally decided to spent two relaxed days at Södrasjön before driving home. I' ve never seen the water level so low the years before. Water clarity of more than 5 meters and lots of sunshine made the fishing really slow. Only a few pike could be convinced to try our lures. We caught fish on jerkbait, jig and wobbler.
        beautiful weather - too beautiful for good fishing

       too much fishing? never ever!! just a power-nap :)

grayling in Norway

Four years ago we tried some fly fishing for grayling in river Storån and Grövlan, northern Dalarna. The fishing that time proved to be really poor so that we decided to test a new water this autumn - the Glomma in Norway. In six and a half fishing days we caught between 80 to 100 grayling alltogether. Unfortunately we had to invest lots of time in finding good fishing spots. The spots close to the official car parks face continious fishing pressure by lazy fishermen. Legal fishing methods are also spinning and float fishing with maggot, worm and other. But nevertheless the river still holds a good stock of grayling. And 250 NOK for a week are not bad either.

        one fish made it finally to the dinner table
        can there be a more beautiful scenery to play a fish?
        despite a very low water level wading can be extremely dangerous
        time for a quick snack
        checking the insect life
         yes, netted!
        45 +  well done

Skåne & Värmland

It is meanwhile 3 weeks ago that I fished together with Robban in Skåne. The Sunday morning session with only one jack pike for my fishing friend was quite slow. The next day at lake Tydingen I had the chance to take the lead in our small fishing competition but failed to hook 2 fish. After a fish in the afternoon Robban took three pike in a row on his spinnerbait and let no doubt about who would have to pay the pizza that day. Last but not least thanks a lot for accomodation during our fishing trip.

Two days later I already met with Gustaf for a quick fishing trip to Nysockensjön. The result after 7 hours of fishing was much better than I would have expected before. All in all 2 perch (top at 1.04kg), 5 zander and 6 pike (top at 99 cm). The funny thing was that Gustaf not only took the biggest fishes but also the most. But by the end of the day I finally recognized that I got probably beaten by his jigging technique. The last 20 minutes with the proper technique I managed to take 2 small zander in a row. Thanks for the fishing lesson :)
