River Glomma October 19th.2009:
Calm, sunny day, but very cold, air temperature +2 degrees C. The water temperature
Czech nymphing was the technique to hook several nice
graylings. Didn't see any rises.
River Glomma October 10th.2009:
Calm, sunny day, but cold. The waters temperature has now
dropped to 5 degrees C.
Very few insects about, but in the middle of day some milk
chocolate coloured caddis started show.
Deer hair imitations on size 14 hook matched the real thing
and hooked a good number of very fine grayling.
Melancholic thoughts that this was the last day this season
for bike&dry fly...........
River Glomma October 2nd. 2009:
Very cold night, -7 degrees C, but in the
middle of day sunny weather and a few insects on the surface.
Calm conditions and good dry dry fishing. I was determined to
fish this day because the weather forecast for tomorrow is
snow and heavy wind!
Before the grayling start to rise, a good technique is to
use a small, but very good floating dry fly and fish it
downstream. Twitch the line occasionally to make movement to
the fly and fish throughout the "swing". This way you often
tempt the grayling up to surface. If the grayling or you miss,
it doesn't matter; you now know where to make your next cast
that should be dead drift right to target.
River Glomma week 38 2009:
River Rynda, river Orkla, great rivers, big salmon and good fishing, but
still; unbeatable fishing days at my home river Glomma. God
waterlevel and perfect weather. Clear
crisp air, sun, silent solitude and grayling rising! A lot
of good size grayling landed on dry fly. Small caddis and
High, but clear water; it's 130cm deep here
River Rynda experience 2009,
29th. of August - 5th. of September:
Glorious prolific river with pocket water fishing and great
pools. Packed with salmon in non taking mood due to low and
warm water. Yet some landed;
for me on Bomber and micro hitching tube as most satisfying
Drifting the river Trysil, 22nd.
interesting experience, drifting in a ClackaCraft drift boat
down middle parts of river Trysil. Hard fishing due to weather
and water conditions, but a few good ones landed! Friends

river Orkla, end of June 2009:
is not much to say, just view the pictures and you probably
recognise the stunning fishing I had!
One rod, one reel, one line and one fly, landed them all!
Is it possible to feel better?
7,5kg, hen salmon released
6,5kg cock salmon
10,5kg, what a fight!

River Rena mid-summer 2009
Combining two hobbies!
Pike on popper!
in the wilderness forest; good small rivers witch offers good
sport on light pike gear.
Small popper on hook size 6-8 will do and gear AFTM7.
Simple small poppers (hook Bass size 8) are far the best.
Giving impression for pike of much bigger prey.
first grayling trip this year; 1st. of April
weather, 8-9 degrees in air, but only 2 degrees Celsius in
river Glomma. Good number of various
mosquitoes(buzzers) and stoneflies;
Capnia pymea and Taeniopteryx nebulosa, hatching.
Several good grayling took my DRY FLY!
