Ytre Sonvatnet

Short cabin trip near Ytre Sonvatnet with nice international company.
Sona river starts in Ytre Sonvatnet.
Ytre Sonvatnet under very windy condition (14m/s). Not a good day for fishing.
"Partial" hike towards Storskarven mountain (1171m). Good tip for a full day hike.
Trippy clouds on our way back to the car.


A few pics from last 14 days...

A conference on sustainable urban mobility plans in city of Trebic was hold in hotel ATOM and nearby restaurant MOLEKULA. Wifi password REAKTOR...Riding bike was strange there - no cycle infrastructure and drivers were too fast to feel nice on the bike...
Home office in Brno. Great weather, good opportunity to play tennis with Mara in the evenings and also vote in local election. Brno impressions - nice "downtown", but... so many cars everywhere. And no hope for a change. So different from other comparable cities in Europe. Cycling there was so bad compare to Trondheim. Really sad to see all the opportunities that are hidden there...
Home office in Hranice. Great to be in smaller city, no stress, close to nature.
A weekend trip to Valassko region. Amazing autumn landscape. We loved it there.
Touching a local sandstone after many years...hmm, I missed that
and mushrooms!
and forest!
and steaks!
After 32 km hike on Saturday, we managed to pick muschrooms on Sunday morning.
Monday - visiting my fishing guru. Great time:) and Fery made me a fishing rode!
On Tuesday I moved to Gothenburg. We presented a poster on urban freight conference...and we won the prize! Lisa presented it really well.
Going from conference dinner, waiting for free ferry.
Autumn colours in Sweden
Attending the session on autonomous vehicles, sitting in VOLVO truck
Gothenburg - Trondheim. 15 hours journey with nice stop in Oslo.
Morning from the train
and back in Norway....

Autumn in Sylan

Inspired by fishing guide for Tydal area, Emilio and I drove to Stugudalen and hiked up to Viglsjøen. We hoped in some nice fish... however, got "nothing", just another great weekend outdoor. 
Our first camp near Møsjøen.
Saturday morning at Møsjøen.
Hiking along Møsjøen, more 10 km ahead...
After a few hours, finally Viglsjøen showed up.
Cold night at the Viglsjøen. Some fresh snow already on the tops of the mountains around.
While fishing...
Autumn in full power...
On the way back.
Møsjøen lake again.

Moåå river between Møsjøen and Stugusjøen.

Top 6

Each catch of salmon (and seatrout) must be registred in Norway. Detailed statistics for some rivers in Trøndelag can be found here. For example in Namsen, 6911 fish were caught (total weight of 24 tuns), in Gaula it was 5505 fish (25t) and in Orkla 4250 fish (19,8t).  Following pictures show some of the biggest salmon caught this season in each river (pictures taken from laksebø

Byelva, 14.5kg, fly
Gaula, 18.5kg, worms
Namsen, 23kg, wobbler
Orkla, 21.1 kg, worms
Surna, 16.3kg. lure
Verdal, 12.5kg, flue


Variability is the key to enjoy an activy in its comlexity. For example, to really enjoy climbing, it is good to combine bouldering, sandstone traditional routes, multipitch routes in mountains, strange historical routes in Suchy and Pusty, sport routes in Holstejn... Of course, specialisation to just one discipline is also a possible approach, but I leave that to professionals. Fishing is variable as well and  I like its different styles (however, still not dare to try fly fishing). In order to improve, it is necessary to fish a lot in different places and to learn from others. This weekend was very educational and entertaining. I combined salmon, sea and fresh water fishing and it was great.

End of salmon season. Finally:)
I ended the season on Orkla river, together with Emilio.

Orkla in the morning. I am already looking to coming back next year.
We saw many salmon jumping, but did not hook any. We met a guy from Oslo, who explained us some tricks (he got 6 fish there), so we are ready for next year.
Instead of salmon, we got many boletes.
Lets move to fjords in Aure region.
Calm day in the air, but the water was boiling.
Together with Albert, we went after makrels, lyr, sea trout...great day, several locations, many fish on the hooks.
And on Sunday afternoon, I drove to Selbusjøen to put Palava on the water. Big trout escaped...
Fjord or lake?
