Just joking about the lords, I think many of them contributed in many ways to the development of fishing for sport in Norwegian rivers and towards the knowledge of the outside world in small remote communities.
I haven't fished Orkla for years, but I know parts of the river quite well from activities at work. I certinly hope that we avoid the heat waves this year. Towards the end of July last year the Gaula discharge passed the minimum of the 60 years dataseries I have access to. It is hard to draw any conclusions based on the two last summers. Both 2000 and 2001 was wetter than normal and provided execellent conditions all season. How is Stordal in August? Are you fishing downstream of the waterfall? I have only fished it in May for the early yearly "combat" trip.

hi knut, yes the lords may have exploited the poor farmers, but also did show a more interesting sport. anyhow you've got your own back over last 30 years! now do you fish orkla? i am organising with friends a group for stordal in early august but i cant go myself after spending most of july in norway.! after last year heat and drought i am hoping for more normal fishing this year. how do you bet? paul

What we learned in school was how the English lords came over and exploited the poor Norwegain farmers
We have had a mild spell lately so you can actually see some water in the Gaula riffles. Now it is also daylight when I leave for work and daylight when I return, so things are definitely heading in the right direction.

If you're heading down to Gape 06/01 to 06/07,I would definately inquire first if the Matapedia is high.If so you can fish there( tonsof public water AND good fishing) The Causapscal (and early Mat. biggieswill be firing through.If the water is NOT high forget it .Garanteed the Mi'gmaq at the mouth will have their nets out impeding a majority of fish getting by .Most of us sadly now do not plan or book reservations at our favourite chalets until the word is out that the river is good and high. If it ain't it just ain' worth it !!

hi topher, i've been having login problems so i've twice replied but lost them in cyberspace i think. be careful who you go to gaula with! which kola have you fished? i get to alta as guest! very lucky to meet super norwegians in tdf a few years back and now fish orkla [near gaula] namsen, malsev [ wonderful arctic river] alta. they like to shoot in uk with us so great friendly trips. last year i drove thru scandinavia on my own and just stopped where i saw river and hotels very welcoming and found me fishing. the norwegians are taught in school how they used to net fish and then the english came and showed them how to rod fish, and the rest is history! regards

Cameron is not returning my phone calls since she hooked up with Justin Timberlake, who--after his stunt at the Super Bowl with Janet Jackson two weekends ago--may be on the way out. If only she knew that unshaven men in baggy waders with double-handed rods and pick-up trucks are far sexier than pop stars and the rest of the glitterati. I'll ring again soon.
Never been to Scandinavia: it's #1 on my list...probably Gaula in early June some year...I want to get spooled. Fished four rivers on the north shore of the Kola...absolutely awesome except for white-knuckle chopper rides. I'd like to go to Alta just to take photos; the fishing is out of my $-range, unless Cameron comes through!
P.S. With the acquisition of Schilling, Foulke, and Co. to the Red Sox roster, I will be placing no bets on my rod collection in 2004.

With a fast two-hander and a 45' shooting head, you should be able to reach those salmon from the Tim Horton's parking lot...
with a fresh cup of coffee balanced on top of your head!
Please don't spill the nectar of the salmon gods........

On the way out!
Just to keep you posted Topher,
Salmon are presently on the way out to sea!! Austin has seen a few this weekend from standing on that first bridge on the lower York.
Looking good!! Mother Nature is on time this year!! I'll let you know when we see those "Silver Bullets" arrive.
Forget Baseball and Golfing..... it's soon time for Fishing!!
Double Spey..Single Spey....??? Sweet dreams!!!

The odds of the Red Sox winning the World Series this year are about those of Cameron Diaz asking me to be her personal 'gillie' at Sautso on the Alta for three weeks in July.
In other words, my rods are safe.....
|04-01-2003 09:02 PM|
I am worried!! You're giving up all your rods for a ball game??
No! No!! C'est pas vrai??!!!
K..then,...I'll take all the T&T's, Sage rods you own......
$ 100.00 Can enough :hehe:
Think about it............
Cracker Jacks on me!!

The "Sawx," as in Red Sox, are going all the way this year. You heard it here first at the Flyfishing Forum.
So confident am I of this fact that I will sell all my Spey rods for $1.00 each after the victory celebration in Government Center and the tickertape parade around Beacon Hill.
I will then fish for brown trout on the Charles with what is left of my rod collection.

#1 - Seattle Mariners fan
#2 - Bosox fan
#3 - there is no #3
Seriously, I love all the teams who play their hearts out - the Angels for instance, or many others who are definitely in it for the game itself.
On the topic of great Chicago teams, what was the name of the movie about Shoeless Joe Jackson and the big conspiracy? I just saw it on a wee hours insomniac channel on cable and want to get the DVD.
