Trout Fishing Report Week 30b – 2015
By André Brun (group leader)
This year’s group was all good friends who had been here before with me. This year we went to Wulf and First Knee. I knew it would be a perfect bunch of flyfishers together. And it really was.
Here are the hard facts:
- 42 brown trout passing 1 kilo.
- Average size was fantastic 2,2 kilo.
- Biggest one 3,8 kilo.
- Not much insects and rising trouts, but I guess they already had somewhat keyed on the surface, so they were rising regularely to dries anyway.
- Seems that we fell in between the major mayfly period and the major caddis period this time. But the fishing still was splendid!

We rigged a nice camp in Wulf; tents out in the open, and not behind the tree line were the mosquitos rule (Photo: André Brun)

A good tip if the weather is hot, is to use the reflective side of a “fjellduken” over the tent. This way the inside of the tent is kept cool, and you gain 2-3 more hours of sleep in the morning. (Photo: André Brun)
During the colder and darker periods of the day, a streamer worked perfectly well. Here’s a streamer from The Norwegian Streamer Series. (Photo: André Brun)

An important part of the trip is having a good time together, wether we are fishing or eating late night dinner together. Jena playing the guitar, is always fun. (Photo: André Brun)
