Norway 2013 – SaltPosted on 20 September 2013 by Vincent
We’ve fished for trout and grayling for a couple of days in Norway. We had some great fun, and caught a few beautiful fish. But our 8-weight rods were screaming for some action!
In part one you can read about our freshwater part of our trip. From the Glomma, we drove all the way to the Norwegian coastline. Pollak was on our mind.
We found a cottage to stay in for a few days, but we had to wait a couple of hours for the cottage to be cleaned. So we took our car and went fishing immediately. Brian knew a spot that was close to the cottage and it was pretty successful on his last visit to this region. The ferry dock was our first spot. For me, pollak fishing was new. So I was excited to find out what the fuzz is all about. We rigged our 8-weight rods with heavy sinking lines (I was fishing a Di7) and a heavy Clouser’s Minnow. First cast, let the flyline and clouser sink for a couple of seconds, and start the retrieve… Strip-strip-BAM!
Over the next two days we found several great spots. All you have to do is find a spot where there’s deep water within casting range. The pollak like to hang around the drop-offs. Once you’ve found such a place, you’ll get a good bend in your rod within a couple of casts. We caught pollak, mackerel, a sea robin and a couple of cod. Can’t wait to go back to beautiful Norge again.
