Salmon fishing is very challenging activity. It requires patience, right timing and a lot of luck, as there are so many variables involved. This season I have decided to focus on one river only - Orkla, and one particular section only - Svinsøyen (more info here). The strategy was clear - to get to know the section well instead of just driving around Norway and hope to get a salmon in some river. The bonus is that Orkla is beautiful river surrounded by nice nature and it is only 50 km far from our house. This weekend, I have been there for the second time this year, accompanied by Emilio.

|There are several of these shelters (called "gapahuk") along the section|
|The signs of salmon everywhere, you can see them jumping in the river... but to get them seems hopeless. However, this time it was different...|
On the way back to car, we observed Karlheinz from Germany, landing nice salmon. It was amazing to observe his technique.
|and just 15 minutes before our licence ended, Emilio got one as well... not so big, but nice one as well.|
