I don’t own a car, so living in Oslo with access to public transportation I love the fact that places like this is available within a very short travel from downtown Oslo. The day was spent drinking coffee next to the stream, fishing for small trout with this quill & hackle pattern, but when I got to this tunnel (it goes underneath a road) I was stuck… I tried a lot of differnent midges and mayflies, but nothing would appear or be interested in anything. Then I put on a white/green variation of the CDC&Deer and instantly I had 3 trouts on: all taking just in the exit of this tunnel.
For rivers like this (if you get a 500g trout here it is big!) I bring my Sage TXL-F #1 and Click 1. A great combination to get out those #18/#22 with a 6x/7x tippet underneath branches and trees along the river.
