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.|
