    Here are some piccies of where I'm lucky enough to be able to work and fish! At the same time (on call paramedic).



    The largest hole of a series of roughly 30 smaller holes full of brookies.



    Another angle, and a dutch guy I was guiding for the day.



    This place is full of fish and I've been lucky enough to have a brookies upto a pound and a brownies upto 6.5lb!

    Okay that got my attention.
    Could you give me some more details.
    Where abouts this place is (just generally in Norway, as you may not wan't to pinpoint it). What it cost for licenses and your guiding, places to stay etc.

    Thanks

    Richard

    Well I'm english and have lived in Norway about 5 years now. I live in Mandal which is Norway's most southern city/town and this place is about an hour up into the mountains. The biggest brownie caught in this place was 10 and a half pound upto 13lb in nets.

    In mandal you've got numerous lakes packed with wild brownies though the average weight about half a pound. Then you've got the Mandalselva which was ranked Norway's 9th best salmon river and then the sea.

    I love this place and feel like I've died and gone to fishing heaven.

    The guys that I was guiding there were Peter Elberse (Holland largest fly fishing tackle trader + Ari T'Hart guy) and Hans Bock (Writes for hollands largest fly fishing mag).

    Nearly forgot, fishing licenses are about 5 a day in the mountains, 20-30 in the river and obviously free in the sea. Places to stay are generally a little more expensive, about 30-50 a night I think. The river season is almost over, goes from 1st june till 15th september. Good fishing ends about the end of october in the mountains and the sea comes to life around october time.......I'm thinking sea trout fishing and the likes.

    Just to tease you even more, this january a sea trout of 14lb was caught not far from me! I had many upto 4lb.

    I haven't any other pictures from the mountains, but I'm going to work next weekend, and then I'll hopefully have some new ones.

    Wiggy, I think you might have hit the nail on the head with "died and gone to fishing heaven".
