I'm sorry to say that to my knowledge Rapalas are not Norwegian, but Finnish, and named after their inventor. We do have some successfull fishing accessories here in Norway too.
I am also happy to report that the fishing for Norwegian salmon in the rivers has been the best in quite some years, this year. In Namsen (or was it Bjøra) there have been reports of salmon of up to 20 kg this year.
Some of the rivers in Norway have been closed for salmon fishing this year, in an effort to raise the numbers for later years.
Oh, and I couldn't find a way to attach the picture of my sea-trout to my original posting. Anyone have any ideas???
See you all.
