Wonderful evening

The 2011 fly fishing season has begun! A few days ago, Øystein Økter and I went sea trout fishing in Tjøme, a beautiful spot on the Vestfold coast. Apart from a 1 lb fish that followed my shrimp fly a couple of times, we didn’t see or feel any sea trouts. But what a beautiful … Continue reading »
