Gustav picked me up really early this morning. We met up with Per and drove the 1.5 hour trip to the west coast for some seatrout fishing. The first spot we got to was not as i wanted it to be so we moved on to another place that looked really nice when Gustav and I was there in the spring earlier this year. When we arrived the thunder, lightning and rain was over us and we took shelter in a little hut. We sat there for a while and enjoyed some coffe and sandwiches and digged in the flyboxes. 40 min later we started to fish and working us along the shores. Per had a little shy take and after a while the seatrout specialist Gustav hooked and landed a nice trout. Some quick photos and then we relesed it back into the salty water. After a while Per hooked a nice trout and Gustav striked again and landed a nice female that also was relesed. I was fishing the same fly as Gustav, a "Pattegrisen or a Pink pig" as they also is called. I had nothing, no bite at all, and I was feeling really down that moment. Gustav had another take and the fish was big and tear of his tippet, almost after that he hooked another nice fish. Then we had to go back as Per had some business to take care of. Gustav, as he friend he his pointed me to an spot and told me to cast there. I only had to strip the fly once as I felt a hard take. Then I throw a second cast and the fly just hit the water and a nice trout attacked my pink pig. Damn that take was good and after a while I landed my biggest searun brown trout for the season. All the bad mood was gone and I was in heaven again. Did that cigarr tasted lovely on the way back to the car? All trout was relesed and they soon will spawn to generate a new generation for us to enjoy in the future.

Well .. woke up early this morning, the rest of the family was sleeping so I sneaked out for some trout fishing in my creek. Lovely morning with a bit of fog and the sun rising .... mmm it smells trout!! At the creek I geared up and took a stroll at a streatch I havent walked in 15 years or so. Last time I was there I saw a huge trout sipping mayflies. Now the water was high and a bit silted from all the rain, but it was clearing up nicely. No sign of big trouts so I walked into the deep forest. At the first pool I scared a big fish that moved a lot of water. Throw some muddlers and streamers but I was there to take a bow on dry so I decided to look for a feeding fish. Walked trough the forest and upstream but no sign of fedding fish. Hmm .. walked upstream to the border of my streatch to have a look but no. Sat down for a while and saw two damn minks chattering down the bank. They are preditors and roams the creek for crayfish and smaller trouts. Wish I had my shotgun with me. Well ... walked downstream to have a look and see if some fishes had begun to feed. Stopped by a nice pool and sad to myself .. "If I was a trout, this would be the perfect spot to feed on". And from nowhere, about three to four meters downstream, a big fish sipped in something from the surface. Ohh .. this is something extra I told to myself .. damn. I crawled down on the bank, getting muddy and wet. Sat there for a while and the fish rise about one time every min. This is no bow I sad to myself, and certanly no small fish. After a while I made my move, decided to fish it downstream as it stood pretty bad. Everything was perfect, a perfect cast, a perfect drift and then ... slurp! The fish took my own tied size 15 emerger and I sat a perfect hook on its way down. My 6.6ft #3 Scott rod was bent to the cork and the Ross reel screamed like a scared pig. A big wild brown trout jump high over the water and run like crazy in the pool. After a min the fish settled down a bit and suddenly .... it was all empty and the flyline was throwed back at me. Daaaamn I screamed right out in the wilderness. I sat down in the mud and reeled in the line, It must have broke the tippet I thought but the fly was there and the knot was perfect. My goal was a two kg wild brown on dry this season and that trout should have done it. I felt empty but still satisfied to know that my creek holds big wild browns side by side with wild rainbow trouts.

My fishing buddy Gustav and I have a tradition, every summer we go for evening/night fishing for searun brown trout. It is fantastic to sit at the rocks and see the sun go down and the sound of the hunting seatrouts hits our ears. We have a nice place with good streams and deep water and some underwater reefs. There was a lot of activities in the water. A school of smaller seatrouts hitted our night skaters on the surface and some really big ones was after the flies. A lovely evening/night and some smaller fat seatrouts was returned. The big ones are still there and we are planning a new trip before the season ends.
