Autumn glory

After two years of pandemic and travel restrictions, it was nice to once again fly over to Scotland to round up the salmon fishing season.  I fell in love with the wonderful little Spey tributary named Avon (pronounced A’an) years ago.

Boka om lakselordene kommer i 2023

Etter over 20 år med research-arbeid, er boka om “Lakselordene i Lågendalen” i ferd med å ta form. Fra å være en historie som knapt var dokumentert, har jeg funnet en stor mengde informasjon, dagbøker, utstyr, illustrasjoner og fotografier, som jeg gleder meg til å dele med dere.

Stay safe. We’ll return!

Fishermen are privileged. We get to see beautiful places, meet wonderful people and, every now and then, our efforts with rod and line are rewarded. This spring, everything is different. Something we can’t see, hear or smell, has changed our world. We can’t travel, we can’t meet and we can’t pursue our favorite sport. All due … Continue reading »

Guiding 2020

  Just three more months – and the salmon fishing season in my local river, the Lågen, begins! Can’t wait.  Even though the Lågen is rather unknown outside Norway, it is one of our best salmon rivers. When the famous giants fail, the Lågen continues to provide us with excellent sport!  If you want to … Continue reading »
