Here are some nice salmon taken recently on the Gaula. Yngwe L., according to http://www.nfc-online.com, has been catching his stamp of big fish at the rate of one a day, on his big Japanese-designed rod (16 ft plus).
Then Manfred heard on the grapevine (easy because he runs the Norwegian Flyfishers’ Club fishings from his Storen HQ) that some big fish had been showing in the afternoon on beat A1. So he went there under cover of darkness and soon after his arrival at 2 o’clock in the morning a big fish took his Templedog tube-fly. Manfred played the fish hard with the aim of releasing it afterwards. The superb cock salmon was landed and measured 114cm length and 65cm girth. Afterwards it was carefully released. Well done Manfred.
All right, come on, let’s have another shot of this fish. Now all I need to do is remember where A1 is – I know I fished it last year (Charlie, any ideas?)
