Moose-watching from the veranda

Between 10 & 11 pm the moose, sometimes several, tends to show up in very close vincinity to the hut. It’s always exciting and never gets boring. The challenge is to get a good picture without scaring him (a male in this case) or her or even them.

rapport 08.07.2020

This week we had Halvor j Røberg, Tom Thomassen, Stein Evensen and Kim Karstensen from Mo I Rana as guests at the Dish Stream. After just two days of learning the water it really narrowed down. Today the gang could report many fish over the kilogram. And mostly dry. “Nervefisk” was the Northern Norwegian word I have learned now 😉 … that means it was pretty good fishing.

Thanks for the pictures, guys. – pictures by Halvor & Tom, fish caught (&released) on 8.7.2020 between 6 and 10 pm.

Dry Fly Bonanza 06.07.2020

Dry Fly Fishing at it’s absolute best. Ephemera Vulgata, or Vulgata for short brings really big trout to the surface. The fish and the anglers go completely bananas. Craziness in it’s best form.

On July 6th we had the first E. Vulgata hatch. Large numbers started coming to the surface. Trout were absolutely feasting on them. See Halvor Røberg with his biggest for the day. (20 inches / 3,4 pounds)

Timelaps of rising fish – 01.07.2020

Vak, three letters which mean the world for an angler. Vak is Norwegian for “rising fish”. The first question in summer is “Har du sett noe vak?” – Have you seen fish rising?

Here at Skålestrømmen you can do so while having a coffee in the morgning. Watch you cup though, you might end up with a mayfly swimming in it.

This video was shot with a Go-Pro. I just had it film for 25 minutes and speeded it up to a minute. No, this is not rain 😉

If you turn out of the E6 north in Trøndelag you get the chance to feel the wilderness on the body in an area with three national parks

From the south, the route begins at Formofoss. From the north in Namsskogan or Lassemoen, see map at the bottom of the case. Sørli area is located in an exciting area between Lierne and Blåfjella Skjækerfjella National Park and is known as Norway’s Alaska. It doesn’t get much wilder.
