April morning sunrise.

This was the sight from the tent opening, after a quite chilly night spent in my beloved Hubba Hubba....just love the name of this tent. Started the camping season last weekend with my boo-brother Geir, after it was quickly decided that it was time for this seasons first night in a tent

Nothing better than to spend some extra time in the sleeping bag, lying in the tent opening drinking freshly made cofee and thinking of the upcoming stress.

While rigging the rod the Leptophlebia Marginata were hatching, not many but enough to make the trout rise. 

It felt just right to start this day with a classic spider pattern like the Waterhen Bloa. 
And with the sun shining on the bamboo flyrod, the trout rose to the spider and life was good.

  1. Fine words,fine tools, and a fine trout.
    Stress killers for sure.

  2. Lovely, concise and interesting!!! Wouldn't mind having been there seeing and experiencing it all myself ;-) Thanks for sharing!

  3. Mark, Brk Trt, The Jassid Man..thanks.
    Sorry for late answer, but driving home from fishing Sunday three weeks ago, my friend and I unfortunately were hit by another car who came into our lane.....police say there is suspicion of drunken driving. So being in the middle of the recovery process with no car and fracture of the neck and sitting here with a neck collar, there will be no fishing before earliest mid-June.....bad timing.
