Oslo Dryfly in June

Saturday was a great day for heading out into the forest around Oslo: 17-18 degrees and the forecast said sun. The forest is very accessible, but for those lakes a bit in you really need a bike to be able to cover some ground in a single day, so about 20km in and I set up on a new lake that I haven’t fished before. First of was the river going into the lake: some small brown trout in the river aggressively going on my flies.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI packed up and headed for a place I had spotted on the map before leaving: a small headland that reached a bit into the lake. As I approached the lake I could see the trout rising steadily and within 2 minutes I got my personal best on dryfly in the forest surrounding Oslo: 400gram of beautiful trout that landed easily in my net. The position I had made it easy to cast on rising trout, so it was a great day with a fair bit of trouts landed and a couple of larger ones that just didn’t want to hook properly. Most took on a CDC & Deer hair dry, but also on mayfly and emerger.
