Tomorrow I travel to Norway to start the 2013 HSA.
I am celebrating my fifth consecutive year fishing the beautiful fly water of the Norwegian Flyfishers’ Club on the wild river of silver and gold: the Gaula.
In a twist of fate I was lucky enough to spend the dying hours of the 2012 Gaula season on the shores of Langoy pool with NFC friends (pictured, that’s me on the far left!) and a great big bonfire.
Now I will be fishing the opening hours of 2013 out there with the same group of friends.
And that’s a good thing: can’t wait.
The fine weather of recent days has seen the river fall fast and the hope is salmon will be running the Gaulfossen, the big falls on the lower river.
But the forecast for the weekend shows thundery rain showers so we can only see what happens but in good company one thing is for sure.
We will have a good time trying.
