On Monday afternoon, our mayor Bente Estil came to visit. It was a nice afternoon with a lot of good conversations, fantastic weather and good food & coffee. Many thanks for the visit and we hope she gets a chance to come more often. The first attempt at fly fishing looked very promising. She definitely is patient.
The most flexible rod for alls sorts of fishing is a 9ft to 9,6ft for a 5wt line. It works well in windy conditions, but a proper 5wt line is also suitable for a careful dry fly presentation.
The by far most versatile line is a DT floating line, a little bit out of fashion, but when fishing at Skålestrømmen you will quickly learn that presentation is 95% of the job. 2% is fly choice, the rest is luck ;-).Continue reading “About rods & lines.”
The COVID-Situation makes survival pretty tough, but we can be happy for that we have – the fantastis fishing at Skålestrømmen. The last weeks we had guests from Oslo and Telemark, who fished the massive hatches in Skålestrømmen. 100% dry-fly fishing. It was great fun and a pleasure guiding and hosting these extremely nice people. – Thomas Züllich, guide, host and everything in between at Skålestrømmen

|Andino Reisen is glad to inform you of a very important innovation:|
Cancellation insurance is automatically included with all of our new bookings when booked. In addition to the usual risks such as illness and accident (from the booking date to the start of the trip), this also covers all costs incurred in the event of cancellation as a result of quarantine regulations or entry bans issued at short notice.
Specifically, this means: Plan your vacation now without risk! Due to this year’s rebooking to 2021, there are already bottlenecks at many popular destinations. In the event of a cancellation due to the pandemic, we will take care of the processing with the insurance company and you will be reimbursed without a waiting period.
