Oslo, 10/7 2010

Inge wanted to introduce me to some urban fly-fishing.

Fully equipped with breathable waders, fly rod and stripping basket we took the tram to the center of Oslo.

We fished in a stream in a park, so you had to be aware when back casting not to catch pedestrians, bikers and runners. We soon saw fish eating insects from the surface. Inge told that you on regular basis here fish next to drug addicts and dealers – this spices up the experience.

We caught several trouts but as you can see of very moderate size.

Later we went to Vigelandsparken, where bigger fish shows at times. Unfortunately this was not one of the times, but there were many tourists and two weddings so we stood out in the crowd. If you want to talk to strangers this kind of fishing is very efficient just as good as a cute puppy, so if you are shy I can not recommend this type of fishing. It was a first for me and a very entertaining experience.
