Not quite what was planned

Saturday, Sunday and Monday I did not have to work, so I have planned a fishing trip to the mountains with my friend Tommy,  Unfortunately, he damaged the propeller on his boat engine last week so the trip was cancelled.

Instead I have been to Messaure with my family, fishing the Lule River.

With my first cast I caught a trout, but it unfortunately got off the hook just before I could get it out of the water.  I did not get any more bites at that location.  My mother-in-law however, did catch a nice 1kg trout.

After we had been fishing for three hours, the electric generating company, decided to open the dam further up stream and the current became very strong and the water rose over 1 metre very quickly, so we decided to move to a new location above the dam.

Emma wanted to try fishing with flies she had tied herself, and it did not take long before she caught her first Grayling.

It was also a chance for me to test my hobo fishing kit.

They were only small fish that I caught, but better than nothing!!
