There are so many lakes around... here are some pics from October-November trips. Still some mushrooms and if I am lucky, a trout... hopefully the ice will come soon!
V srpnu jsme se s Ferym loucili na Orkle a ja doufal, ze pristi rok znovu dorazi a chyti si konecne toho sveho lososa. To jsem netusil, ze to bylo louceni posledni... Kdyz jsme se potkali v roce 2011 na Devadesatce pri rozhovorech o Krasu, mel jsem z nej solidni respekt. Legendarni horolezec, "objevitel" Krasu, proste frajer. Postupem casu jsme se hodne sblizili. Hodne nam pomohl se Sedmikraskami, a kdyz jsem se pozdeji premistil do Norska, stal se mym (nejen) rybarskym guru. Zjistil jsem, ze nejenze zna v Krasu kazdou turu a hodiny, ale ze zna i kazdou zatoku v Norsku. Venoval mi nespocet ruznych trpytek a prutu, radil mi kde a jak na pstruhy ci tresky, a sdileli jsme spolecnou vasen v neuspesnem lovu lososu. Psal jsem mu o kazde vyprave a doufal, ze za mnou dorazi na sever. V lete 2019 jsme stravili tyden na Orkle, klasicky bez uspechu, ale byl to krasny cas. Od te doby je na Orkle jedna velka tun znama pod nazvem Feryho tun - tam sedaval a pozoroval mohutneho lososa. Stareho, moudreho lososa. Budou mi chybet vsechny ty spolecne chvile. Moc.
Tynset and Tolga districts are our favourite areas in Trøndelag. Autumn gives a special feeling to the landscape and it is really magical period here. Birch forests become yellow and mountains show all the colors. We found a lovely cabin in Gammeldalen and explored the area. Farmland in the valley, hunting season up in the mountains. On Saturday, we made an amazing 25km round-hike, starting from Bjørkkjølvangan and continued around Storjønna, Eidsætra and Klettsætra, meeting just 3 hunters along the way. On Sunday, we drove to Hodalen, a complex of clear lakes full of grayling and got a few for the grill. Must come again!
"The salmon-trout drifts in the stream,
The soul of the salmon-trout floats over the stream
Like a little wafer of light."
|After the trip to Orkla, I was looking forward to meeting KarlHeinz on Mandalselva. Before that, I took a short trip to a small river called Lierelva. This river is just 30 minutes drive from Oslo and is known for seatrout and small salmon fishing. |
|After 15 minutes, I got this male 1kg salmon hiding behind a stone in this small pool in Grøttedammen. I was using the same spinner as on Orkla, just little bit smaller. Hmm, I was really surprised. |
|On Friday, I finally arrived to Villmarkscamp and met KarlHeinz, who has already been fishing on the south for a few days. |
|In the next 3 days we fished in Zone 3 and KarlHeinz was guiding me in an amazing style, as he knows the river very well and is always positive. Purely enjoying the possiblity to fish on this beautifull place.|
|Here is KarlHeinz fishing under the cables in The cable pool. Tricky place to cast. |
|Fishing was not very successfull, KarlHeinz had a couple of bites on his fly and that was all for the whole Saturday. But there were so many fish in the water and I have never seen so many big fish jumping around like in some magical salmonarium. This photo is from one of our favourite places - Finsdal. |
|Getting a fish meant that we finished this beautifull day with great dinner.|
|We hiked 28km in 2 days, connecting Renndalen with Innerdalen. This route is marked as an extra difficult hike. |
|It starts with a steep section (from 250m to 1100m) along some nice waterfalls, from Renndølsetra to Renndalen.|
|We had a little foggy Renndalen just for ourselves.|
|The valley ends with a steep section leading to Langvatnet. First snow encountered here.|
|Crossing the water above the waterfall from Langvatnet. |
|The waterfall from Langvatnet into Renndalen.|
|Langvatnet was foggy, with lot of flies and some ice in the lake! No fishing...|
|The original plan was to camp next to the lake ... well, it was not possible|
|So we continued, ... escaped from the fog and found a great place to put a tent,|
|with some amazing views all around.|
|Our camp in the evening|
|and in the morning. No fog!|
|But more snow:)|
|Around lunchtime, we reached the entry gate into Innerdalen, with amazing landscape everywhere around and no people at all.|
|The Innerdalen valley looks nice and easy, but it was a long walk down to the car...|
|I especially enjoyed the endless muddy section through Lusmyra.|
|Beside the mud, it offers great views as well|
|but it takes a lot of energy from an old man to walk in the mud.|
