Gullkroken er uten tvil årets sportsfiskefest i Norge. Prisutdelingen ble i år arrangert for tredje gang, og omlag 500 mer eller mindre ivrige sportsfiskere var lørdag kveld samlet i Christiania Teater for å hylle noen av årets sportsfiskeprofiler.

Det er ikke så ofte jeg tipser om andre fluefiskeblogger og -nettsteder, selv om jeg absolutt burde det. For det er definitvt mange dyktige og morsomme stangsvingere der ute.

A different fishing season

Almost six months have passed, since I had to put my faithful fishing companion and our family’s dog, Maja, to sleep. One of the most difficult, but at the same time easiest decisions I’ve had to make. We all miss her greatly, and it’s strange to go fishing without her. Me and Maja, May 2010 … Continue reading »

Sea trout time!

Spent a couple of hours checking out the conditions in my local fjord this afternoon. The ice is more or less gone and the water is slowly, but surely warming up. In other words: It’s sea trout time! Didn’t see any fish splashing around, but I know a few sea trouts have been landed the … Continue reading »
