Rena!



Jeg var på plass i Rena elva i slutten av 70-tallet og lunket i helæ på pionerene for moderne Nordisk Fluefiske; Kenneth Boström, Lennart Bergquist, Preben Torp Jacobsen, medlemmer fra Fluefiskeklubben Imago med bla. Staffa
n Lindstrøm, Pål Krogvold, Tor Skarpodde, samt lokal helt Tor Svendsberget. Moro å være der når Rackelhanen, Superpuppa og Streaking Caddis ble skapt. Også bøker som "Flugbinding på mitt sätt" (LB) , "Dagsländer i öringvatten " (Bengtson/Boström) og "Tørfluefiskeri" (PTJ) fikk sin inspirasjon her. Ble også kjent med fluefiskere som fisket her på 60-tallet; Kjell Kvarnstöm og Hans Åström.

This season last visit to river Rena!

A very cold fishing day, only 0 degrees C in air, but 7 degrees C in water.
Water level now 246,88m and easier wading.
In spite of so cold weather and no sun breaking through, a very sparse hatch of Emphemerella Ignita!
And of course the big grayling lined up for a feast. Hard to fool them with my imitations, but cracked the code when the fishing day almost was over at 4 p.m. The fishing day made me very cold, but also made me thinking a lot of the key factors to fool such selective fish!

Flies, late autumn

 Foam Capnia pygmea, tied on TMC emerger hook size 15. Lands perfectly on surface every time and floats high and light.

River Rena, again

 Waterlevel 247,06m and very hard fishing as the waterlevel seems 0,25m to high and difficult wading.
9 degrees in air, 8 degrees in water
When the sun broke through, ten-thousands of small black stoneflies (equally size as capnia pygmea) started dancing and darting over the surface!. Very hard to fool the big grayling then, but managed to land a few.
Also a very sparse hatch of Ignita...

Magnificent river Rena, 11th.of October!

 A magnificent crystal clear day, 6 degrees C in air and 8 degrees in water.
Water level 246,82
 A lot of rising fish due to a good hatch of mayflies and some stoneflies


When I found the right imitation of this, several very good grayling landed.
