Gaula via GoPro

DCIM100GOPROExcellent to see that the River Gaula’s slow-ish but steady start for the Norwegian Flyfishers Club has become a red letter week for Olivier Plasseraud. The French fly-fisher and journalist really has led the way over the full opening week with his latest capture and release of a 115cm salmon which puts it comfortably past the 30lb mark.

The fish, caught on Friday was brilliantly photographed by Thies Reimers who was swiftly commandeered from the new lodge just 3/4 mile upstream as it was released into the Junction Pool. Don’t miss the awesome shots on the NFC’s cool new website.

Meanwhile, here as promised are a couple more photos of my brief visit last

weekend:

Moody at Bridge

DCIM100GOPROThe famous Bridge Pool, looking upstream, taken as John and I headed to Bogen Sondre 2 on Saturday evening last (we all like a moody photograph don’t we?)

The finger at New Pool

DCIM100GOPRO(A fisherman’s finger, as wrinkled as a prune lol!) Looking downstream on the New Pool, where I believe NFC guide Trond hooked and lost a salmon the same day I took this. I have yet to catch an NFC salmon on this famous pool, where the club now has fishing both banks, but I will keep trying when I return in August. This was our first session on Saturday at noon.

Another big river

DCIM100GOPROWaking up to a sunny view down the Thames to Greenwich in Mum’s flat on Tuesday morning, having flown back from Trondheim the night before.

That’s it for now, the next time I post it will be from the famous River Spey, where I drive a week today for three or so day’s fishing on a river that is now coming up with ‘the run they should have had in mid-May’. Will it produce the first 2013 salmon for this blogger? You’ll have to tune in.
