The evening of May 26th was a beatiful spring-evening here in Bergen, Norway, and a great one for fishing. So I packed up my flyrod, a couple of flies. My fishing bag was as usual loaded with a burner and my coffee-kettle. I went to the sea-shore this evening.... It was a most magnificent evening, but I didn't catch anything, BUT I saw a couple of big sea-trouts jumping and I just couldn't tear myself away... But eventually I had to get back home, and so I did, but with a promise to return the very next day.. (I guess now would be a good time to explain that I live 2 minutes walk from the beach...)

So the next day I again packed my gear and went down to the beach, and HALLELULJA on the second cast, a big silver sea-trout jumped. In my head I thought that it jumped further out then my fly, but on it's second jump I could feel that it was hooked on my fly.. What an underscibable feeling... After half an hour, going back and forth, fighting, reeling and letting go, the fish was finally in my hands. And my God! This was the biggest fish I have ever caught.

I cleaned the fish on the beach and let the seagulls feast on the left overs... Took the fish home with me and weighed it to be just over 4.5 kg.

The trout made a memorable meal for me and five close friends, I think we stayed at the table for almost 10 hours with plenty of lovely fish and plenty of delicious red-wine....

The downside of the story is that this will probarbly be a once in a life-time experience...
