Northern water

Surfing back in time, into the summer, with photos from Stepanka Papuchalkova. The topic - water and fishing.

those lakes in Øvre Pasvik national park are full of pike, graylink and bass. We did not know that bass are good to eat (they are supposed to be delicious) so we were putting them back
weather was absolutly amazing all the time there...except a small storm, that confused us so much, that we made circles on the lake, arriving into the same spot after 30 minutes of paddling into different spot:)

this was amazing lunch spot

with fish jumping directly on the grill

a huge pike lives here. Stepanka almost got it. Around 1 meter long. Superkoma jumping into the lake to get it. It escapes.
Bass each cast. Almost boring. Superkoma performing a superaction
that was really wild nature lovers' dream
more on the north, we got some char in the stream from Syltevikvatnet
amazing fishing destination

Syltevikvatnet - big char live  here and we got two of them. They were like submarines cruising in shallow water.
Senja, dream island

yes, this is Norway
we did some sea/salmon/trout fishing here, lot of fish everywhere
me trying luck in Norddalsvatnet

Ice fishing

Cold weather is here, so I spent couple of hours on the ice.

Bymarka is frozen
Estenstaddammen (here), perfect condition for skating

I got just one bekkerøya here (mixture of trout and char)
Holstdammen (here), ice 10-15cm, just perfect
I got 8 trout there, a few of them around 0,6-0,7kg. Exciting feeling to fight them with tiny icefishing equipment

Autumn travelling

A few pics from last couple of weeks...

Estenstaddammen in Trondheim, small lake full of trout
it was time to visit the Czech republic for a few days
to check Master's Hammer
and friends

to learn some new mushrooms
to see the autumn in Hranice

and in Brno

go back to Trondheim to jump on the train back south to Oslo

We loved that 7 hours train journey. Somewhere around Støren

somewhere behind Oppdal

in the fog

and more fog
out of fog

into Mjøsa lake, the biggest one in Norway with 20 kg trout living there

closer to Oslo

Oslo was amazing

and quickly to Hague for a conference
and enjoy almost the summer again
and back to Trondheim...


Windy weekend in Silermoen, next to Forra river. Autumn colors, hunters, feeling of wilderness.
3,6 km long wooden path goes  from Risvolan parking to Vigdvatnet
from Vigdvatnet it is 3 km to reach Forra river 
Forra river - calm and clear beauty, should be full of big trout. We must come again to get them.  I encountered a pair of big moose here...they jumped into the river in front of my boat and swam over. Alaska moment...
